At Flexport, we believe a world that does business together is a better one. It’s called global trade. And freight forwarding is the $2 trillion industry that functions as the circulatory system of global trade — without freight forwarding, global trade simply wouldn’t exist.

Problem is, the freight forwarding industry is antiquated, not customer focused, and definitely not tech savvy. We’re changing all that.


Only Flexport brings together advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise to deliver a dramatically better experience. Flexport and the Operating System for Global Trade give businesses what they’ve never had before with their freight forwarders: Deep visibility and control from origin to destination, fast and reliable transit times, and low and predictable supply chain costs.

First to market in 2013 with a purpose-built cloud software and data analytics platform, Flexport today serves more than 10,000 clients in over 100 countries, offering a full range of services, including ocean, air, truck and rail freight, drayage & cartage, warehousing, customs & compliance, financing and insurance — all informed and powered by our software platform.

Flexport has offices in San Francisco (HQ), New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Hong Kong and Shenzhen (and expanding rapidly). We have warehouses in Los Angeles, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Shanghai. We’re taking the market by storm:
