Trella takes another step in its plan to become a leading regional trucking app

Egyptian digital trucking marketplace Trella has launched in Pakistan, a little less than a year after expanding into Saudi Arabia, Saim Chaudhary, the company’s managing director in Pakistan told Menabytes. “With Trella becoming a key regional player, such an extension seemed natural,” said Chaudhary, who previously led Uber Pakistan and launched Uber Auto, a ride-hailing service for two- and three-wheeled rickshaws. Trella had previously outsourced some of its support functions to Pakistan, which helped the company make the decision to expand there.
