Imagine the following chaotic scene at a warehouse on the outskirts of a major city. Truck drivers travelling potentially hundreds of miles from their homes, paying parking and entry fees, sparring with their peers for assignments that are frantically claimed nearly as fast as the middlemen can jot them down on giant chalkboards.

This is the story of Full Truck Alliance.
