Freight forwarding is the circulatory system for global trade. It still largely runs on paper. Flexport is changing this with a strategic operating model for modern businesses that powers more transparent, more agile, more efficient, and more profitable global supply chains.
Flexport and the Operating System for Global Trade bring together technology, infrastructure, and expertise to deliver real-time visibility and control, and a far better freight forwarding experience.
Only Flexport connects all the parties in global trade – importers, exporters, trucking companies, ocean carriers, airlines, customs agencies, port terminals – through a single, secure cloud-based platform.
In addition to offering access to all modes of transport, Flexport is building cross-docking warehouses near all major global population centers, each connected by high-frequency air, ocean, truck, and rail freight line-hauls in a global hub-spoke network.
Connecting our tech, infrastructure, and expertise gives clients what they've always wanted: fast and predictable transit times. By tracking air and ocean shipments through our technology platform, plus hundreds of trucks now using our electronic logging devices (ELD), we are able to provide objective ground truth on transit times. And, when clients choose Flexport for end-to-end air service, our network can save them 2-3 days.
Our online dashboard gives brands more visibility and control over their inventory in motion than ever before - allowing them to better match supply and demand, reducing working capital, enabling greater business agility and helping drive growth.
Full shipment information and historic performance data are the keys to optimizing supply chain efficiency and unlocking savings. At the same time, access to all the purchase orders placed by our entire customer base allows us to consolidate loads, providing discounts to those with excess capacity in their containers.
Maintaining compliance with regulatory and security certificates and licenses is critical to assuring safety and business continuity for our clients. Here are just a few of the accreditations and certifications Flexport holds.
