Software and Operations.

Welcome to our first public release of how we are employing cloud tools to automate over 95% of our logistics management operations. We have custom automation all over our processes from Driver onboarding, driver trip management, customer orders and payments. A radical move.

Our primary mission focuses on Making Load Capacity Readily Available and Affordable for any community.

With that in mind, we have to radically change how a goods transporter works by giving them software based tools for managing goods delivery operations.

Today's focus is on AWS Rekognition and how we are automating our driver onboarding process to save millions and focus on paying our vehicle owners.

What is AWS rekognition?

AWS rekognition is a powerful image and video analysis service that can be used to save millions of dollars (Rands) on security and operations costs. With AWS rekognition, you can easily detect objects, people, and activities in images and videos, and then automatically analyze and catalog your content for easy retrieval later.

How can AWS rekognition save you money?

AWS rekognition can save you money by reducing the need for manual review of images and videos. It can also help you keep track of your inventory and compliance with regulations.

At QikTruck, the process is simple. Vehicle owners register their Vehicle Load Capacity on our system and we curate then put a price on this Load Capacity for anyone in the area to use.

These vehicles need to be vetted before we make them elligible for use by the market. Instead of putting up a brick and mortar store for drivers to come with their documents, we simply allow them to upload their documents online. Then we employ our algorithms on these documents to rate each document under 21 carefully selected grading criteria.

Vehicle owners save on fuel.
Vehicle owners can continue with their business, no need to travel to QikTruck.
QikTruck does not need to invest millions on physical stores for managing documents.
No need for printing out and storing paperwork.
No need for a large team.

What are some features of AWS rekognition?

AWS rekognition has some great features that can help you save money. One feature is its ability to automatically detect and tag objects in images. This can save you time and money by automatically identifying objects in images, so you don't have to do it manually. Another great feature is its facial recognition capabilities. This can be used for security purposes, or to simply keep track of who is in your photos.


Finally, rekognition can also identify text in images, which can be helpful for extracting information from documents or other images. Overall, AWS rekognition can be a helpful tool for automating image processing tasks, and can also be used for security and tracking purposes.

What are some of the benefits of using AWS rekognition?

AWS rekognition can help you save on your annual cloud computing costs. The service offers a variety of features that can help you optimize your use of AWS resources, including image recognition, object detection, and facial recognition. With these capabilities, QikTruck can track and easily identify objects, people, and activities in the environment.

In addition, AWS rekognition can help you automate tasks such as image classification and object identification. As a result, you can save time and money on processing and storing large quantities of data.

AWS services can also improve the security of your data by providing access control and activity monitoring. With these features, you can restrict access to your data to authorized users and track changes made to your data. This can help you prevent unauthorized access to your data and ensure that only authorized users can view or modify your data.

How to get started with AWS rekognition

Getting started with AWS rekognition is easy. Simply sign up for an AWS account and create a new rekognition project. Once you have your project set up, you can begin uploading images and videos to be processed. You can also specify what types of objects or scenes you want to be able to detect, and set up rules for how you want rekognition to handle each type of detection.

This process is completed programatically as soon as a document is received on the system at QikTruck. :)

QikTruck has 21 carefully selected questions that our algorithm runs to rank documents from reliable to less reliable.

AWS rekognition is a powerful tool that can save your business a lot of time and money. Getting started is easy, so why not give it a try today?

Perhaps you need help with setting up your own AWS Rekognition based tools. Reach out to and our Engineers will be glad to point you in the right direction.


While we still require our teams to run criminal checks, physical vehicle inspections and other means to verify the elligibility of each driver and vehicle. Why? Because customer safety comes first. We have saved millions in our business operations by filtering through over 3000 vehicles in 6 months, AWS rekognition is definitely worth considering.

Now with over 900 vehicles registered and verified. We are proud to share our success as we learn how to radically improve our operations and the logistics industry.
