Flexport, a digital-first freight forwarding company that recently reached a valuation of $3.2 billion, is focused on improving the global supply chain process by using its online platform to provide real-time shipping and tracking information to the global trade industry which has traditionally relied heavily upon paper and email.
In a recent interview, Flexport CEO Ryan Peterson noted that of the top 100 freight-forwarders, Flexport is the only one that was founded after Netscape. The freight company released Version 2.0 of its digital platform - dubbed a Slack-style SaaS platform for shipping by the media - in late September 2019.
Flexport brought in $441 million in revenue during 2018, a 95% growth over 2017, and counts companies like Sonos, Georgia Pacific, and Klean Kanteen among its major customers. It has ambitions to compete with the biggest freight forwarders in the world - companies like DSV and Kuehne+Nagel - and become top-10 global freight forwarder.
They have a ways to go to reach that status. In 2017, Kuehne+Nagel grossed over $22 billion in revenue while DSV topped $11 billion. UPS - it’s most well-known U.S. competitor - grossed nearly $8 billion in revenue. That said, Flexport’s growth has come at a rapid pace: in the fourth quarter of 2017, Flexport handled 18,100 ocean teu and 8,250 tons of air freight, representing increases of 246% and 183%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2016.
