VANCOUVER, British Columbia, August 22, 2019 (Newswire.com) –Freightera, the rapidly growing Vancouver-based B2B Freight Marketplace offering instant all-inclusive LTL, FTL, and rail freight quotes in Canada and the USA, was recently listed as #3 of 100 Fastest-Growing Companies in B.C. by Business in Vancouver Magazine. See the list here.
Companies must have had $50,000 in sales in 2014 and $1 million in 2018 to qualify. Founded in 2014, Freightera grew 5,366.7% from $97K to $5.3M in revenue in 2018. Today, the Freightera marketplace connects 10,000+ businesses with over 20 billion freight lanes from 800+ transport carriers on the platform.
“We attribute our stellar growth to a great product-market fit that we’ve found serving our customers. Our shippers love the combination of best prices, best inventory, and excellent customer service we offer and routinely save over 50% on the transportation cost using Freightera,” says Eric Beckwitt, Freightera CEO. “We are happy to make the very top of the BIV Fastest-Growing Companies list. It’s a big recognition and a huge honor for everyone in our enthusiastic team.”
“2019 looks like another tremendous year for us,” Eric Beckwitt continues. “We’ve already added to our marketplace a vast inventory of rail rates from North America’s largest railroads, many new LTL carriers, and refrigerated LTL rates. We’ve released a freight booking app for iOS, AI-powered pricing intelligence and are on target to more than double our revenue year over year. This fall, we’ll be opening new services and rolling out a SaaS model with memberships and discount plans for active users. Stay tuned.”
