790: GlobalTranz, The Technology-Driven Freight Brokerage Company
The GlobalTranz team focuses on innovative technology and partnering with sales professionals that possess energy, insight and a fervent customer service mentality. GlobalTranz has also created a one-stop-shop for its customer base of over 25,000 shippers. The company was also recently recognized as the 10th largest Brokerage Company in Transport Topics’ Top Freight Brokerage Firms.
After reading how GlobalTranz became a leading company in the $157 Billion Dollar third-party logistics industry, with annual revenue of $484M and growing. I wanted to learn more about how they are leveraging innovative logistics technology by optimizing the efficiency of freight movement and matching shipper demand and carrier capacity in near real-time.
I invited Greg Carter, Chief Technology Officer at GlobalTranz onto my daily tech podcast. Prior to joining GlobalTranz, Greg was CTO and SVP of Product Development at Kewill, a global provider of enterprise logistics software to the world’s largest logistics and transportation companies including FedEx, Volvo, Crane, and DHL.
Greg joined Kewill in 2014 to establish a new technology vision for the company and help communicate that vision to the market. At Kewill Greg led a global team of over 500 people and was responsible for product development, IT and cloud operations. Greg moved Kewill’s strategic products to the Amazon cloud, beginning with Kewill’s flagship Customs and Transportation products.
I learn more about how after leveraging its extensive freight agent network, GlobalTranz has emerged as a fast-growing market leader with a customer base of over 25,000 shippers.
