Startup Story: TransportSimple | Re-defining Administration Of The Logistics Industry
Founded by father-son duo Hardeep Singh and Jasdeep Singh in 2018, TransportSimple offers fleet management services to logistics businesses.
Referring to the current working way of the logistics industry as chaotic, time-consuming, error-prone, and lacking owner visibility, Jasdeep says the startup with its services streamline logistics operations.

So, to manage the business properly, Jasdeep started looking for a better solution to manage, but couldn’t find any.
But soon he realised, other fleet owners and transporters were facing similar challenges and saw an opportunity.
So, to streamline business operations, account handling for easy administration, and other logistics-related services, Jasdeep with his father started TransportSimple.
