Our Company
Simplifying global trade is FreightHub’s mission. We are leveraging our digital mindset and technological skill set to revolutionise this multi-billion dollar industry. We increase transparency and reduce hassle for everybody moving goods on this planet, from up and coming FBA Sellers to large corporate customers. We are a team of experienced founders backed by top tier investors and we are touching the lives of millions of customers every day. The only thing missing is YOU.

What Engineers @FreightHub build

  • We build quoting and routing algorithms to calculate prices for moving goods globally, e.g. what does it cost and how long does it take to move 150 bikes from Taiwan to Berlin via airplane?
  • We ingest live tracking data of ships, trucks and airplanes to infer meaningful actions on the supply chain, e.g. re-routing shipments when a ship arrives late
  • We build a platform that makes global logistics easy, enabling our customers to focus on their core business, e.g. by providing them with a visual dashboard and map of their supply chain for actionable insights at any time
  • We automate processes to lift the degree of automation from 5% to 90% - killing faxes, emails, and phone calls from logistics once and for all
  • We build complex APIs to connect our partners and customers, e.g. for sending a truck through Europe, without ever talking to the driver
