Modernizing procurement and payments within the $2 trillion logistics industry

Modernizing procurement and payments within the $2 trillion logistics industry

Global trade touches every human life - but very few know about the $2 Trillion freight forwarding industry that makes trade possible. Freight forwarders power this complex industry as brokers in charge of coordinating large shipments of goods. Most interactions between businesses that import and export goods and their chosen freight forwarders occur via spreadsheets, email, PDFs, and even paper, rather than via a centralized platform. You will help us build a modern shipping platform from the ground up to streamline and automate the freight procurement and payment workflows for the industry. If we can capture just 3% of this $2 Trillion market, your work will revolutionize and bring pricing efficiency to global logistics. Portex is a new, still-under-the-radar/stealth company. We're backed by prominent VCs including Susa Ventures (notable other portfolio members include Flexport and Robinhood) and strategic angels who have deep industry experience.
