Javier Selgas, CEO of Fr8App, said, “At Fr8App, we create technology solutions that contribute to our customers’ success by improving their efficiency and profitability. We are thrilled to unveil our latest offering, Fr8PrivateFleet, which matches carriers with the capacity to provide certain amounts of carriage services over time rather than on a trip-by-trip basis. Our new technology solution for committed capacity planning enables participating carriers to have a steady stream of revenue while solving shippers’ need to secure freight capacity over time, especially in today’s tight market.
“We are proud to have signed Kimberly Clark de Mexico, a leading public company in Mexico, as our first Fr8PrivateFleet customer, as we believe it validates our product, which has the potential to increase the active use of our platform by participating carriers. We expect this additional revenue stream to expand our growth opportunities in 2022. As a leader in transportation logistics technology, Fr8App is setting standards for solutions today and is well-positioned to enhance the future success of our carrier and shipper partners,” concluded Selgas.
