Why We Do What We Do
I love working at Freightera because it allows me to think and work at the system level. It allows me to assemble and collaborate with an inspiring group of bright, thoughtful people and solve fundamental problems for the individuals that we work with and the larger society we all influence every day. I am happiest when we have first name based relationships with the people at each business we partner with and serve, allowing us to function as a community and work with each other as whole people. I am also really excited to be involved in the transition to low and zero emission freight shipping, and help create and spread a kind, gentle and caring customer culture in this traditionally rough industry.
I love working at Freightera because I believe that we are making a difference in the freight industry. It’s challenging and I enjoy solving the challenges with my team, helping each other to learn and improve every day. Freight is very old school and needs a lot of changes from a technology stand point. It’s exciting to see the advances that are coming in automation, shipment tracking and clean tech and to be able to offer them to our customers as soon as we can. I grew up in a city with a lot of air pollution and had asthma as a child, so Freightera’s leadership in green freight has a special place in my heart!
I choose to work at Freightera for a few reasons that were very important for me in selecting an employer. The first is company culture. It is great to be part of a team that is set on achieving a goal and building something while adhering to values of respect, fairness, and integrity. It is great to be able to come to work every day knowing that my performance and hard work will contribute directly to the outcome of what we are trying to accomplish. Even more so, it is great coming to work every day believing firmly that what it is we are trying to accomplish, though not necessarily easy, will help our customers and carriers and revolutionize an industry that is far from being as simple and efficient as it needs to be.
It is exciting to think that in a few years time we could be seen as the company that rejuvenated this huge outdated industry that we work in.
My WHY has to do with innovation, teamwork, and brilliant customer service. When picking up the phone to start new relationships with customers and carriers, there is nothing more motivating than feeling completely confident in the service we offer. My confidence comes from the fact that we offer a unique solution for businesses that saves them major time and major money, and our team is respectful, helpful, and appreciative of one another. Our team is dedicated to exceptional customer service, and it naturally leads to long term relationships with our customers and our partners. Working in such environment is stimulating and rewarding, because I am continuously learning from our customers, our partners, and our team.
I am happy to be a part of amazing team with great chemistry and complementary skills. Everyone on our team is open, creative, helpful and super friendly. It excites me that we share our mission of improving lives of people around us: our families, coworkers, partners, and our customers - shippers and carriers. Everyone on Freightera team understands that we are here not to make a quick profit, but to make friends and build relationships with people that rely on us and that we rely on. Our reason for existence is to transform freight from an inefficient and stressful industry into a high-tech and high-satisfaction environment. Our customers are hard-working people on their own important missions. We help them by providing easy to use technology, best value and the most appropriate, respectful and caring customer service possible.
We are not just another technology platform. Freightera is a progressive, futuristic company taking social responsibility to people and planet seriously and having fun innovating in everything we do. We have ambitious plans to change the way freight is shipped around the world, dramatically reducing waste and pollution in the industry by using new processes and technologies.
Freightera is an international company that cares about its clients, its employees, and the environment. Working at an award-winning technology start up where business is done in a conscientious and ethical manner continues to be an advantageous learning opportunity for me.
I love being in a friendly, close-knit team with people who truly care about each other. A healthy working environment is a must-have for me when it comes to any kind of job, and even though we are a relatively big, remote-working team, we fit well together. After all, multinational teams are a perfect breeding ground for new experiences and personal development. Being in our virtual office is always fun and engaging!
I’m grateful for having been given the opportunity to work in and learn from other departments in the company, and I'm absolutely fond of my current department - working in marketing truly gets my creative juices flowing.
I love working at Freightera because it is a company, but at times it feels more like a family. We are a small collective, but we are a strong one. We strive to grow, but not just in numbers. We grow together as a team and we grow together with our clients. Sharing the same goals, contributing with various skill sets and coming from different backgrounds - we collaborate to make a difference. A difference that, in my opinion, is revolutionary and already starting to show in the freight industry all over North America, and it will soon show all around the world.
I work for Freightera because I believe we are making giant leaps in creating a brighter and greener future, while also improving the freight industry itself by setting new standards. Freightera challenges the conventional ways of the freight industry by reducing the carbon footprint, by making shipping as easy as a few clicks, and by offering a client support that is out of this world. Being a part of the team that is making such big changes makes me feel proud as I know that what I'm doing is worthwhile. The entire freight industry feels bleak – Freightera is there to add some color to the business. There is no better feeling than knowing you are leaving a greener and a better planet, while also making people’s lives easier and better.
Freightera’s team feels more like family - we are bound together by strong relationships and common interests. In addition to that, I am happy to be working in a forward-looking company that cares not only about its employees and customers, but also about the environment. Freightera has an important mission in leading the freight industry change and promoting lower emission freight options.
When I started, logistics was a brand-new thing for me. Even though I’ve learned a lot, there is still so much to learn. Our system and quoting are evolving very fast and becoming more and more complex. However, in the customers' eyes, it is still a very simple process and everyone can signup and get a quote easily. I have a hunch that one day we will even be bigger than Amazon 😊.
Many businesses, when they start up, are all about trying to get as much "profit" as possible. They don't realize that everything they do is branding. It is the fastest way to lose a loyal customer. I think we are similar to Amazon in the sense that we work on solving a real problem and sustainability rather than pursuing short term profit. Amazon never gave up even after 7 years of losing money 😉. As long as we believe in our mission and vision, we will get there eventually 😊.
