Discover smooth shipping with the online freight revolution

Freightos is the online marketplace for the trillion dollar freight industry. With an investor portfolio including GE Ventures and Aleph, $50 million in funding, and a team with a track record of successful exits, the company is transitioning into rapid revenue growth mode.

Freight matters.

90% of everything we eat, wear or use is shipped or flown from other countries. But freight sales technology is stuck in the ’90s, without automation or transparency. Our cloud-based technology changes that, automating freight pricing and routing at some of the world’s largest logistics providers, as well as tens of thousands of marketplace customers.

We’re not the only ones excited about changing the world. You can read about Freightos in BBC, TechCrunch, the Wall Street Journal and others.

At Freightos, financial systems aren’t a backend run by nerds with slide rulers in our basement.   . It’s at the beating heart of our sophisticated freight technology,managing AR/PR with hundreds of the world’s largest logistics providers…and thousands of importers and exporters. Since ESP doesn’t work, we need our ERP to get clear and accurate invoices and billing to our buyers and sellers. But that’s child’s play compared to the complexity of handling every currency in the world, building accurate financial models to drive business-critical decisions, and so much more!

So let’s talk about you.
