Improving drivers’ lives
Regarding his incorporation into the start-up, José Lezáun emphasises: “I am very excited about the opportunity that Trucksters is offering me to form part of its team. I have been following the company since its inception because I was surprised by its approach. It is the first company I know of whose mission is based on improving the lives of drivers. I have worked for many years in the recruitment and maintenance of transport providers and drivers, and I am a firm believer that they are the foundation of a good service, especially now, as their scarcity is becoming apparent.
Lezáun believes that “Trucksters’ growth is spectacular, which confirms that its approach will change the way long distances are managed. Improving the conditions for drivers will make this profession much more attractive and will be reflected in the quality of service to customers. There is still a lot to do, so we are starting with a lot of strength and enthusiasm to radically change a traditional and excessively rigid business”.
