Reaffirms 2022 Revenue Guidance of Approximately $40 Million.
HOUSTON, TX – May 24, 2022 — Hudson Capital, Inc. (NASDAQ: HUSN) and its wholly owned subsidiary Freight App. Inc. (Fr8App) reported preliminary revenue for the first quarter of 2022 for the period ended March 31, 2022.
Fr8App reported preliminary revenue of $5.3 million for Q1 2022, up from $4.8 million for Q1 2021. With the Q1 year-over-year revenue growth, record monthly sales for April, and positive loads carried trend, management reiterated its 2022 revenue guidance of approximately $40 million.
Javier Selgas, CEO of Hudson Capital and Fr8App, said, “We are proud to grow preliminary revenue 11% year-over-year during a period of macro-economic challenge. Our sales team has successfully broadened our customer base and greater diversity of revenue contribution. Nonetheless, driver shortages and high fuel prices negatively impacted margins during 2022. As gas prices stabilize throughout the year, we expect to improve margins. Also, in 2022, we have been finding more capacity and have been increasingly more selective with loads. We are pleased with our loads carried ramp in April, which gives us confidence in reiterating our 2022 revenue guidance of more than 86% year-over-year growth.”
