Started in 2017, Truck Lagbe is an online platform that connects truck owners/drivers and shippers. Truck Lagbe directly connects truck owners with people who need to hire trucks. Truck owners could register their trucks and bid for trips. Shippers could download the shipper app and hire a truck with a few clicks on their mobile phones.
For truck owners, finding customers in a return trip has always been a challenge, which usually contributed to the overall volatile nature of pricing in the industry.
