Read a brief history of HTM and TruckScience

Humble Beginnings

From humble beginnings in a garage in Amanzimtoti, Hellberg Transport Management (HTM) was established in 1978.  HTM was the brainchild of the late Fritz Hellberg, a true visionary, with an infectious passion for the transport industry.  38 years have passed, and HTM has been at the forefront of computerised planning for the transport industry ever since.

In Good Hands

In 2008, Fritz handed over the reins to his son Jens Hellberg, and Martin Dammann, who himself had been at HTM since 1994.  With a combined 30 years’ experience in the business, as well as their own aspirations for taking the business to the next level, Fritz’s legacy was in good hands.

TruckScience in Ireland

Jens and Martin knew that what they had was valuable and unique, and wanted to continue to innovate to meet the demands of the South African market.  At the same time, they knew they had an opportunity to realise their dream of competing in the global market. With Jens’ family ties to Ireland, and its world-renowned ICT sector flourishing, Ireland seemed like the obvious place to set up a base outside of South Africa.  And so, Jens established ‘TruckScience’ in Ireland in 2011.


6 years on, and TruckScience in Ireland is by now shedding its ‘startup’ status, having already achieved significant successes, including finishing 2nd in the International Grand Final of the Google ‘Adopt A Startup’ program earlier this year.

Hellberg Transport Management renamed to TruckScience

By now, the time had come to simplify the message, and to bring Hellberg Transport Management in South Africa and TruckScience in Ireland under the same brand, where the whole would be greater than the sum of its parts. And so, effective 25th October 2016, Hellberg Transport Management was renamed to TruckScience.

Business As Usual

Martin Dammann carries on in his role of Managing Director of TruckScience in South Africa; Jens Hellberg as Managing Director of TruckScience in Ireland, with the two continuing to work closely together to grow the brand at home and abroad. Users of TransSolve can be assured of the same great personal service from the Support team in Durban.

Innovations Demanded by a WorldWide Industry

With TruckScience having customers in 19 countries already, South African customers can expect to see exciting developments in the software for many years to come, benefitting from innovations which are demanded by serving a worldwide industry.

Professionalism Simplified

As Martin Dammann put it, “Simplifying Professionalism drives everything we do, and we will continue to apply these fundamental principles as we serve our customers into the future.”
