LONDON: May 29, 2019. Ontruck, which matches drivers with loads to reduce the cost to shippers of empty-leg trucking, has hired former Uber senior manager of Product Operations Nolan Andelin and former head of Global Operations at online food order and delivery service Just Eat Samuel McGuirk.

OnTruck automates the matching of loads to trucks, and provides real-time GPS tracking of all shipments. Clients include large multinationals such as Procter & Gamble, Decathlon, as well as over 400 mid-sized companies in Spain and the UK.

In February the company added France to its existing UK-Spain network. Founder and CEO Iñigo Juantegui commented at the launch: “After a year of successful operations in the United Kingdom we were eager to continue to grow our European presence.” Last year UK shipments made using the Ontruck platform grew 41 percent with tonnage increasing 44 percent.

As the company’s new head of Marketplace, Andelin will be tasked with consolidating its business strategy and says he plans to apply his Silicon Valley experience. McGuirk, who has been appointed head of UK Operations, is expected to leverage his Just East experience in managing teams across Italy, France, Ireland, Canada and Spain.
