Happy New Year once again, dear blog reader, this time it’s a Lunar New Year celebration!
Off to a Good Start
It’s been a busy beginning of the year 2019 for us at Freightera. January keeps defying our expectations of being a slow month. Nope, not so. We have signed up a good number of new customers and got a record number of 5-star reviews in a month on Google and Trustpilot. It tells us that we are in touch with our customers needs for budget-friendly freight rates and high-quality service.
Just a few amazing examples here for you to see!
We’ve Made Headlines
On December 31, Frost & Sullivan, the top 25 global market research and analysis firm, published its comprehensive study of freight digitization opportunities and placed Freightera among ‘Key Automated On-Demand Brokerage Solutions in North America’ along with Uber Freight and Convoy.
On January 7, Canadian Shipper published an article about Freightera’s ambition to become a unified global freight marketplace with the best inventory, rates, and service, similar to what Amazon became in global e-commerce.
