Our story

Connecting people to expand what’s possible.

At its core, the freight forwarding industry is about people. Every day, thousands of us communicate across borders and time zones, working together to facilitate the flow of goods around the globe. We saw an opportunity to transform the industry’s productivity and performance by using technology to make that communication dramatically easier, faster, and more accurate. The result: more efficient workers, stronger relationships, and happier customers.
