2. Cargo Chief
“Cargo Chief started out as a Silicon Valley based tech-enabled freight brokerage, diving deep into how freight is moved and managed; we processed tens of thousands of loads for hundreds of shippers, some named with the support of thousands of carriers. About a year ago, many 3PLs said our award-winning multi-patented technology was better than anything they could find and they asked us to license our technology which includes key data integrations, machine learning, artificial intelligence, aggregations and advanced automation. In order to not compete with clients, we discontinued brokering freight.
We now provide our technology to the industry and match 3PL loads to available capacity from carriers.”
