The MyTrucking story
Helping small transport businesses by reducing time, removing mistakes, improving communication and making invoicing easy.
MyTrucking came about through helping a friend tame the paper trail. Established in 2014 by Sam & Sara Orsborn, MyTrucking was developed alongside a local transport business to stream-line a laborious paper-based system, and in particular lessen the hassle of admin (invoicing). The initial offering of MyTrucking proved to be quite popular among several other local livestock transport companies that Sam approached a local developer for assistance to make it available to a wider audience.
MyTrucking “in the cloud” was launched and it was soon after that we realized we could change the game for small and medium sized transport businesses everywhere. Everytime we demonstrated our simple, powerful cloud-based transport management software to new prospects we could visibly see the joy of having removed the burden their old paper based system had them under.
We love helping other small businesses transform the way they do business, and we are only getting started.
Sam is involved full-time in the family business, Sharpes Stockfeed with his parents and wife Sara, as well as being involved in the running of the family farm. Sara Orsborn (nee Coop) is from a farming family in Hawkes Bay and has a strong background in Sales & Marketing.
Sara has held roles with the Richmond Meat Company, and later with Bernard Matthews (now Ovation NZ), before going onto setup her own business specializing in Marketing consultancy and Event Management. Sara is also involved in the Orsborn family business Sharpes Stockfeed where she is the Marketing Manager.
Sam & Sara live on the family farm in rural Carterton in the Wairarapa along with their 3 young children William, Lucy, Olivia and Ollie the fox-terrier.
Together Sam & Sara make a wonderful personable and professional team.
The MyTrucking team is based in a newly renovated property on the Orsborn farm. Sam & Sara have been pondering the future of one of the older barns on the property, with it’s 100 yr old timber columns, beams and floors, the MyTrucking team is busy sketching office layouts and emailing them to Sam & Sara, we are saying YES to the shed.

"We have expanded MyTrucking use to our site supervisors, they are now entering their own jobs instead of us waiting for dockets to come back each fortnight, this is a HUGE help for me to do invoicing. I love MyTrucking for job entry and invoicing, it makes it much less time consuming."

We’ve been running a fleet of trucks in Australia for many years and as a result, we’ve had a look at many different Scheduling Programs over the years, but nothing has been able to satisfy our particular business practices.
With the introduction of MyTrucking, our workplace systems have become more refined and generally more efficient. MyTrucking is a very simplified yet detailed and easy program to run and integrate into our daily scheduling and reporting functions. The reporting functions are really helpful to keep an eye on things, and Sam is very open to new suggestions to help improve efficiency.Jeremy Pittman
