Egyptian B2B trucking marketplace Trella has secured a further significant debt facility from ALMA Sustainable Finance (ALMA) and the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) to support the growth of its operations. ALMA’s debt financing, backed by the DFC guaranty, will support the expansion of Trella’s platform for MSME truckers in lower-middle-income countries Egypt and Pakistan, where MSMEs provide the bulk of employment but face operational challenges.
Trella is a real-time B2B technology platform and trucking marketplace that connects shippers and carriers. It reportedly has over 350 shipper partners, including blue-chip companies like Coca-Cola, Maersk, Mondi, Henkel, Orascom, and Cemex. The project will also benefit from technical assistance provided by both USAID/Pakistan and USAID/Egypt.
