VENICE, CA. February, 2016

Today’s smartest startups demand efficiency, transparency, service and speed when delivering their products to market. That is why so many now use Cargomatic for their local trucking needs.

The Cargomatic app instantly connects businesses who need to ship goods locally with nearby truckers who have available capacity. The innovative Cargomatic platform is rolling back decades’ worth of bureaucracy and bringing the ‘sharing economy’ to the $82 billion local U.S. trucking industry.

Cargomatic startup customers include Instacart, Washio, Flexport, MeUndies, Boxed, and FabFitFun. The Cargomatic app allows these companies to quickly book a trusted carrier and then GPS monitor their freight’s movements on their smartphone or desktop. All documentation and payment is processed digitally, eliminating time-consuming paperwork.

With capacity in and around Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, Cargomatic is poised to serve a growing number of today’s top tech companies with short haul and container services in three of the country’s largest transportation hubs.

“From Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach in California, to Silicon Alley in New York City, Cargomatic is proud to be helping so many tech companies on both coasts improve their supply chain logistics. Trucking is a hugely important facet of daily commerce, and Cargomatic empowers shippers and truckers alike to operate more profitably. Everyone wins,” said Cargomatic CEO Jonathan Kessler.
