Where are we coming from?
The idea for Truckbook came about in California, where Trucking is the backbone of the economy.
1 in 20 jobs in California are from the trucking profession. Over 77.5% of California depends on truckers. so that their goods and services keep moving. In fact, here, truckers move 714,883 tons of cargo everyday!
But there’s more. Through time, trucking as an industry is facing too many problems.
The challenges are many: Laws that might harm independent contractors, a big shortage of drivers, the lack of young truckers in the industry and a very large turnover rate (75%). It is clear that the time to now think of solutions – and not problems – has come.
Truckbook is our attempt at a solution, where all we seek to do is make Trucking a more enjoyable occupation. We want to assure our Truckers that their lives will be made much, much easier.

Exponential Growth, A Kilometer at a Time
Pardeep Singh Bajwa
We trace our origins to the moment when our founder, Pardeep Singh Bajwa, began experiencing many challenges while running his own trucking company. With 5+ years in the business, he began working towards expansion. However, this was when the biggest challenge came – there were simply no good-quality drivers he could hire for the job! There were many existing platforms he tried using, but the drivers he would find were almost always unprofessional.
The final tipping point arrived two days before the Christmas Eve of 2017. One of his drivers simply bailed on an important job. The load was from Reno, NV to Sacramento, CA. He could not find a driver at the last moment so he himself took the wheel. As he drove through a heavy snowstorm, the idea of Truckbook began forming in his mind.
