Perth, Western Australia – 6 July 2016
Ms Siobhan Lancaster, CEO of Furry Dice Pty Ltd (Instatruck) is pleased to announce that Instatruck has reached the the semi-finals for the Growth Category of the 2016 Western Australian Innovator of the Year Award.
Ms Siobhan Lancaster commented, “This is a great day for Instatruck. It validates all the hard work that the Instatruck team has put into creating a technology that allows businesses to get matched with trucks on-demand.”
“By leveraging the efficiencies that our technology creates, users of Instatruck are able to get goods delivered easier, faster and more reliably than by booking transport through existing taxi truck or courier companies. It also allows pre-screened owner operators of trucks to source additional work.”
“Our customers have informed us that the solution that Instatruck provides exceeds any other service on offer by the existing transport industry, reducing both time and cost for businesses and consumers. Reaching the semi-finals for WA Innovators of the Year validates this position further”.
