How easy is it today to call a cab if we need a ride these days, we just pull out our phone and use one of many ride-sharing apps in our country. Gaurav Biswas is looking to make it just as easy to book a truck for companies with his technoloigy enabled aggregation platform, TruKKer! If you're wondering how exactly that works and who would need this service, then keep listening, Gaurav's doing some big things in the Middle East & Northern Africa regions! Gaurav, originally from India, has lived all over the world, with a heavy focus on large scale commercial real estate projects. He takes us through the difficulties of regulation with international borders, the adaptation of the Middle East to enable technology, and how he had raised tens of millions for TruKKer!
