A second project is a freight app called Tahmeel, which is the Arabic word for load or loading. Like Convoy and Uber Freight, Tahmeel is trying to disrupt the logistics industry in the region (will launch in 7 languages, English, Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Hindi, Turkish and Russian) by automating certain tasks for drivers, shippers and fleet owners. In July 2018 Tahmeel will release an iOS and Android app for each one of these stakeholders together with a web app.
