Logistics technology company Freightos is to expand its online freight marketplace to the UK.
The online platform currently provides freight comparison, booking and management of freight services for importers and exporters in the US.
“Our team’s been pursuing frictionless global trade for years and we’ve now reached the tipping point. By expanding to the UK, we’re making global freight easier for UK retailers, importers, manufacturers, and exporters,” said Freightos chief Zvi Schreiber.
“Pax Britannica paved the way for unprecedented global trade in the 19th century, triggering the gradual build-up to over $19 trillion dollars worth of goods imported and exported annually. Global trade has reached record heights. It’s now time to turn towards technology to help propel it even further.”
