Loadsmart, a digital freight technology company, was awarded #15th place at the 2020 Freight.Tech25 awards held at Freightwaves Live CHICAGO. The award marks the second time Loadsmart has been recognized as one of the most innovative companies in the freight industry, having placed 22nd in 2019.
The FreightTech 25, chosen from the FreightTech 100, highlights the most disruptive companies across the freight and transportation industries, featuring both cutting-edge upstarts and top-notch traditional powers.
“All of our efforts have been focused on developing the right technology and partnerships to make Loadsmart the go-to-marketplace for logistics execution. We are confident that this approach will bring long-term sustainable change to the industry, which to date has seen many companies follow the traditional path of blitzscaling-for-market-share,” said Felipe Capella, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder at Loadsmart, “Moving up in Freight Tech’s Top 25 most innovative companies is further validation that we are moving in the right direction.”
The FreightTech.25 isn’t the first time Loadsmart has been recognized by analysts and industry groups. In the past 12 months, the company was awarded “Digital Brokerage of the Year” by Frost & Sullivan, nominated by Gartner as a Cool Vendor for “Intelligent SCE Technologies” and recognized by CB Insights as a disruptor in the supply chain industry.
Placing #15 in this year’s FreightTech.25 is just the latest in what has already been a very busy year, from partnering up with Oracle, to moving the first fully automated load with Starsky Robotics, and raising a new $19M round with Ports America and Maersk.
If 2019 has been any indication, we’re excited to see what 2020 has in store.
