Author: Nicki Franz
Bangor, Me. – September 29, 2020 – MustDeliver was the recipient of Investment Range 1 grant from the Maine Technology Institute in support of MustDeliver’s ongoing Independent
Truck Driver Market Research and Recruitment project. Goals for the project are to:
- Demonstrate that the marketplace we seek to build solves a problem for independent owner-operators
- Obtain friendly driver contacts who can provide feedback on messaging, pricing, services and tech functionality
- Sign up drivers for the pilot launch of our service
We’re currently recruiting owner operators to participate in our 30-minute Virtual Driver Panels in order to achieve these objectives. If you’re a driver and are interested in speaking with us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time.

MustDeliver & Maine
Headquartered in Downtown Bangor, MustDeliver’s core team of five includes three Mainers. Our QA/Customer Service Manager and CTO reside in the Bangor area and our Co-Founder & CEO, while a Mainer at heart, currently resides in Portland, OR. We are thrilled about putting roots down and growing in a small, yet dynamic city like Bangor, Maine due to the inherent benefits of nurturing a start-up in a tight-knit, supportive community. We feel our position as a technology company servicing the freight industry offers a unique opportunity that is well-suited to the area. Cultural fit matters, and Bangor people are truck stop savvy in a way that Silicon Valley, Boston or New York could never match. Given our love and appreciation of the area, MustDeliver is committed to being dialed in and supportive of the community around us.
