#160 – 28 YEAR Olds’ MULTI-MILLION Dollar Start-Up COULD CHANGE the TRUCKING Industry, FOREVER!

Conn3ct Inc is a company that builds a brokerage app to connect shippers, freights, drivers, and carriers. The app holds the information that is relayed to carriers.

Adrian Mcbride and Dominic Ortiz, the founders of Conn3ct arrived at the idea when they were having a conversation over sneakers. Yes, that’s right. And soon, they realized that bringing technology (application) to the transportation space would be great for the trucking community.

The app, built with the human element in mind, facilitates stakeholders with easy access to information. They are also implementing a social networking site in the app to make it convenient for users to share messages and updates.

They did have their ups and downs. Like any new idea, their business plan was seen with a sense of skepticism. People who were not convinced backed out of the project.

So, Adrian and Dominic had to grind through, stick together, and weather the storm to keep their dreams alive.

Five key takeaways from this podcast:

  1. How can apps help the trucking industry?
  2. How do they help an ordinary person get into the transportation business?
  3. Trucking Management System.
  4. The biggest challenge in building the app.
  5. Crowdfunding to scale the business.

Final word

Bringing technology and transportation together is exciting and could transform the trucking industry.
