Do you know what unites the computer or phone you're reading this on, the watch you're wearing, and that designer shirt you're not wearing? Global freight. It's a trillion dollar industry, with 90% of all goods imported by ship...and the rest imported by air. Freightos WebCargo has nearly single-handedly brought it online, helping global air carriers in 90+ countries and over 1,000 freight companies automate sales and operations, with nearly one million monthly searches. This all builds it up to feed Freightos, the world's largest online freight marketplace, with $90 million in funding, tens of thousands of users, and some incredibly complex technology and have gotten the BBC, TechCrunch, and the Wall Street Journal excited in the process.
