Amit Punaini and Ishu Bansal are the founders of TruckSuvidha.  

Amit Puniani is a passionate businessman, who has always wanted to start a venture which could be helpful for society. Thus he along with Ishu Bansal started TruckSuvidha with the aim to organize the unorganized truck transportation sector.

Ishu Bansal, a software engineer by profession also had a dream to have a startup through which he could make a positive difference in society.

As it is said, like minds think alike, Ishu with his technical background, and Amit with his resources are set on a path to make an impact in the lives of the not so educated section of people, who are associated with truck transportation, with the help of technology.

Currently, TruckSuvidha has a team size of about 45-50 members.

How was TruckSuvidha Started

Ishu was a software engineer by profession, he was doing well in his career but somehow felt that it was not his calling to be just another software engineer. He wanted to do something more worthwhile. Ishu’s family owned a plywood manufacturing unit. He observed how problematic it was to transport manufactured goods. He saw that there were always some or the other issue that businesses have to face in transporting their goods. This instigated Ishu to do something to solve this problem. As he usually does, he discussed this idea with Amit. Being from a business background, Amit too found the idea interesting and decided to be a part of it, ultimately leading to the inception of TruckSuvidha.  

The duo started their journey from a visit to the Azadpur Mandi and interacting with the people who actually are in this industry. This made them believe that they are on the right path and could do something to bring about a change to the lives of these people associated with the transportation of goods. TruckSuvidha was launched in September 2014 in Yamuna Nagar, Haryana.  

We realized how unorganized this sector was, which required a bit of technology & innovation to turn things around. Some common problems were the hassle a customer has to face while booking a truck, difficult life of a truck driver and potential business losses faced by transporters all of which had a solution. We are here to provide that solution.

The name TruckSuvidha depicts the core services provided by the company.

The brand name “TruckSuvidha” is short, easy to pronounce, and users easily understand that what we are offerings.

TruckSuvidha’s tagline is “Think Ahead”, which reflects the aim and vision of the company.  The company’s logo is simple and easily identifiable.
