What a year 2020 was, and what a year 2021 is turning out to be!
We live in times where history is made almost every single day - in ways that are sometimes sublime, sometimes funny, and sometimes downright ridiculous.
In a little corner of the world called Bolton - a city in Ontario, Canada - your favourite shipping solutions partner Freightcom has been creating history too! (Thankfully, in all the right ways!)
Two months into 2021 and we’ve completed acquisitions of two shipping companies: ShipGooder & PrepBox !
And here’s a little secret - this is only the beginning of our growth plans for 2021! Stay glued to this blog to receive more updates.
We got some smart and dynamic people from PrepBox and ShipGooder to come and help us achieve our vision of contributing to the prosperity of SMBs across North America!
Michael Rochon, or Mike, who has been with ShipGooder since 2010, is now taking charge of the transition. A leader with decades of experience in the field of transportation and logistics, Mike expressed his joy on becoming part of the Freightcom family:
“I am very happy to be here at Freightcom. The people are wonderful and dedicated to their customers! Freightcom's expansive ecosystem will open new opportunities for ShipGooder customers with extensive courier relationships, amazing rates, freight offerings and eCommerce integrations.”
In a previous post, we’d introduced you to the founder and CEO of PrepBox, Prakhar Aditya Dwivedi, or Adi, as we address him around the office! Adi, who’s now a proud Freightcommer in his new role as Director of Growth, ClickShip, had this to say:
"The people at Freightcom are so easy to work and collaborate with. Being here has opened new avenues for what I want to achieve - cater to our clients in a more progressive way. I have always kept clients and clients’ interests first. I came here and realized that the Freightcom leadership wants to do exactly the same thing!"
At this point, you might ask how these acquisitions help us serve you better?
Since its inception 10 years ago, Freightcom has been on a mission to provide shipping solutions that centralize & simplify the shipping process for small-and-medium sized Canadian businesses without compromising on speed, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.
Backed by our cutting-edge technology and relationships with carrier partners, these investments will allow us to offer our industry-leading LTL, courier, and eCommerce shipping solutions to customers beyond the border.
Most of all, this strengthens the Freightcom value proposition and brand, allowing us to offer even more value to YOU!
Being a partner in your success is the biggest motivation for everything that the people at Freightcom do. As the company enters this new era of growth, we can’t wait to find out what we can achieve together with you!
