The Conceptualization of FreightSmith
In 2017, FreightSmith’s founders with an extensive background in solving complex supply chain and logistics problems began conceptualizing an app that could improve warehouse receiving efficiency by disrupting traditional processes. They wanted something that could streamline the gate-to-gate process by allowing users to easily manage trucks remotely through the delivery and unloading phase, speed up the payment process digitally, and create full visibility to all participants around a single version of the truth. After several years of research, development, and testing, FreightSmith was ready to launch.
Bringing FreightSmith to Life
The founders sought out experts in software development who were as passionate about revolutionizing warehouse management as they were. With a team of developers on board, they began building the platform from the ground up – coding every line and testing every feature until they had what we now know today as FreightSmith. A few months later, after much anticipation and hard work, it was finally ready for launch! The team continues to expand the FreightSmith offering and add further value to complete the one-of-a-kind digital inbound solution.
