6. Truckish


Founded: 2017

“Truckish is a comprehensive SaaS platform that integrates the tools that trucking companies need into a single, convenient, and affordable system.

Although carriers with fleets of 20 trucks or less make up over 92% of all trucking companies in the United States, they must compete with larger fleets without the benefit of the premium-priced software tools and economies of scale savings available to their more resourced competitors. Thus, many carriers juggle multiple software subscriptions and/or manual processes to carry out their day-to-day fleet and business operations. Synthesizing the various outputs from separate tools costs small business owners time and money that could be better utilized elsewhere.”
