Egyptian trucking app Trella will make its Saudi debut any day now

STARTUP WATCH- Trucking app Trella will make its Saudi debut any day now: Trella, the venture-backed Egyptian trucking marketplace that connects shippers to carriers, is set to make its debut in Saudi Arabia within the next few days, founding partner Omar Hagrass tells the local press. The trucking app expects to cover all freight-related services in the kingdom before the year is out, Hagrass says.

New investment round coming soon: Trella is expected to receive a fresh funding round from a group of investors, Hagrass said, without disclosing the anticipated amount of funding or who the investors are. The company will use the proceeds to add more services to its roster, fuel its geographical expansion, and hire more truck drivers. Trella had raised more than USD 600k in pre-seed funding from our friends at Algebra Ventures earlier this year.
