Changing How Construction Moves

We are removing the guesswork from construction logistics by building a marketplace that will increase visibility and control – across all assets, as well as increase your capital performance.

The Marketplace

Contractors and aggregate producers can access thousands of trucking companies and book instantly through the Trelar platform to complete jobs of any size.

The Mobile App

Truck Drivers can search and accept loads from their phones as well as give contractors and producers visibility into their location via GPS Tracking.

Electronic Documentation

Scheduling, dispatching, and documenting of all loads are automatically saved in a digital format - facilitating payments and performance reporting.

Trelar is the on-ramp to improved construction truck brokering.  Founded in 2018, Trelar combines decades of experience within building materials, construction logistics, and technology to digitize offline trucking operations, and to improve operating efficiencies and profitability.  We understand the hyper-local nature of RMX, HMA and AGG operations, and our platform is optimized to deliver you the fastest, easiest way to find, schedule and pay for trucking services.

Our marketplace and mobile app are at the heart of our platform but only the initial steps of Trelar redefining construction logistics.
