About Us | Who is Cargomatic?

Who is Cargomatic?

Cargomatic lives at the intersection of technology and logistics.

Founded by a tech entrepreneur from Silicon Valley and a logistics expert from Los Angeles, Cargomatic understands the challenges of local trucking and is dedicated to creating new solutions with technology.

By seamlessly connecting shippers and carriers through our web and mobile apps, we’re helping truckers grow their businesses and shippers track their freight in real time.

The diversity of our team and their ideas is what gives Cargomatic the edge in an industry that still relies heavily on phone calls, email and fax machines.
