Being a woman in trucking is… …a bit of a rocky road. My name is Chiamaka and I’m a female CEO in a man’s industry. There’s a lot of inefficiencies in West Africa. You book a truck. You keep your fingers crossed. Hoping, waiting to see a shipment at your door. If it shows up, fine. If it doesn’t show up, too bad. I was like why? Why do we have to go through all of this? Growing up, I always used to like to take things apart, put things together. I was always curious about what makes things work. But I wanted to solve a real problem like a real world problem. Truckr is an app where shippers can go find any kind of truck they want to move whatever kind of cargo they have. You click a button and the truck comes to you, just like magic. Google Maps Platform helps our customers see in real time where their truck is. You can watch the truck from the pick-up location to the drop off. All through the journey, they can talk to the driver in real time. Young Chiamaka would be so, super proud of where I am right now. Because when you can show that you do good work in this male dominated industry, they give you your respect. We want to expand all through West Africa and then definitely, it’s Truckr to the world!
