Travis Falasco

As one of Flexport's earliest employees, Travis Falasco joined the team back in 2015 when Flexport was just 60 people strong, all working in one small office but with one big dream to revolutionize the logistics industry. Travis has worn many hats during his tenure at Flexport: Operations Associate, Logistics Manager, Continuous Improvement Manager, and now he serves as Flexport's Global Head of Dangerous Goods. The compliance discipline of Dangerous Goods is extremely niche in the industry and Travis brings a wealth of experience to the table from the US Air Force where he served as a Hazardous Materials Inspector starting in 2004. There, he was responsible for the inspection, build-up, documentation, and physical loading of hazardous cargo onto military aircraft. Today, Travis is an IATA endorsed DG training instructor and has developed Flexport into being one of the only freight forwarders in the world that is also an IATA accredited DG training provider.
