GoFreight Raises $23 Million in Series A  

by Kay Aloha Villamor in November 15th, 2022

GoFreight, a Los Angeles and Taipei-based startup that provides all-in-one software for global freight forwarders, raised $23 million in Series A funding.

The round was co-led by Flex Capital and Headline, with participation from LFX Venture Partners, Palm Drive Capital, and returning investors Mucker Capital, Cornerstone Ventures, and Red Building Capital.

The new funding will be used to develop more features like smart quotations, rate management, and purchase order management.

GoFreight’s goal is to empower traditional freight forwarders to stay competitive with the same quality of technology that Flexport has.

“A freight forwarding business is about how to ship cargo from point A to point B. Software can really help, but that’s not their main business. The service itself is the main business and software cannot help minimize the shipping costs or get it there faster. But it can certainly help provide additional valuable information to customers, importers and exporters,” said, Trenton Chen co-founder and CEO of GoFreight, adding, “We try to empower incumbents to compete with Flexport. That’s an approach to make this entire industry better and faster.”

GoFreight, which currently has about 1,000 customers, helps manage the transportation of goods through the ocean, air, and land routes. It is currently working with partners to build a network that connects customers with freight forwarders, and freight forwarders with carriers.
