Xeneta Raises $80 Million in Funding  

by Kay Aloha Villamor September 19th, 2022

Xeneta, an Oslo, Norway-based leading ocean and air freight rate benchmarking and market analytics platform, announced an $80 million investment at a $265 million valuation.

The round was led by funds advised by Apax Digital, the growth equity arm of Apax, a leading global private equity advisory firm, with participation from NY-based Lugard Road Capital. 

With this investment, Xeneta will accelerate investments in platform development and continue scaling its global commercial teams. This will support expansion into new markets as companies seek to develop resilient supply chains to counter global trade volatility. 

“While global trade tries to get back on its feet after a couple of years of uncertainty, it’s clear that the overall logistics industry requires a re-think of how freight is bought and sold. This new funding will help us accelerate development of our platform and add even more datasets to enrich our expert industry analyses to further drive transparency in the market,” said Xeneta CEO and Co-founder Patrik Berglund. “We are proud to have a renowned global fund like Apax Digital and its expert operational team to work alongside us as we enter our next stage of growth.”  

Mark Beith, Partner at Apax Digital, joins the company’s Board of Directors.
