5 days

In an OceanMatch pilot in Q4 2018, Flexport saved shippers moving freight on the Transpacific Eastbound trade lane five days compared to traditional LCL transit times.*

8,000mt

Flexport projects that our Carbon-Neutral LCL Service will offset 8,000 metric tons (mt) of CO2 in our first year, the equivalent of planting over 200,000 trees or mitigating over 19.5 million miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
