When Mohammad Illiyaz quit his job at Amazon to start something on his own, he wasn’t clear on where he was headed. But when he heard about the problems his friend faced in getting a good transporter, he decided to venture into logistics. He started his own transport company in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh to understand the issues in the industry. During the course of business, he met Gouri Patil who was also running her own logistics company then. With an initial investment of Rs.20 lakh, they decided to launch Truckkers, an online trailer aggregator.  Sometime after the start-up was launched the third co-founder, Naveed Ahmed, joined the team.
