What do you call a sad story? Missing the bus? Being late for work?
For us, it is having a hard time transporting your goods, products and equipments, to where they need to go, using the right transport provider.
Usually, for your cargo, there's no transport. And for truck drivers, no loads to carry, hence, no jobs and no money earned.
The current setup of the country’s freight market means, there aren’t proper channels for truck drivers and the people who have freight to meet.
Whatever a sad story means to you, it would always be a situation where there are people denied the opportunity to reach their potential due to one challenge or the other.
How do we make truck drivers more accessible to the public? How do people with goods and products easily get truck drivers to move their freight to the right location when needed?
That is how Safetrucks came into being.
Safetrucks is an internet freight marketplace that provides more information and choice to people with freight and transport providers.
Reducing average freight transport costs, increasing business opportunities for transport providers and truck drivers, and creating a more efficient industry for everyone by reducing the number of empty trucks on the roads and the level of frustration for the public who find it hard to transport their goods, products and equipments.
We achieve this by providing a transparent online bidding system, allowing transport providers to access a larger pool of available freight to move, thereby achieving the best price possible for their Customers and allowing transport providers to be more efficient with managing their loads.

Why is Safetrucks so personal to me?
I have been into transportation since 2007 when I was in high school. I remember driving my father's truck to transport goods and products across local and regional markets.
I could remember how it was hard for people to find a truck that would carry their freight
Most times when we transport freight out of the city, we return with empty trucks because there’s no avenue for people looking to transport their own goods and products along our service routes to meet us.
These experiences led to Safetrucks.
