Freight technology company Loadsmart has acquired Kamion, an intelligent trucking management system, and Opendock, a company that offers warehouse dock scheduling software
Connecting Opendock’s dock visibility and Kamion’s carrier network with the Loadsmart platform is one step closer to removing the barriers between shippers and carriers so freight can move in the most efficient, transparent and automated way. “By bringing carriers, shippers and warehouses together, we see the potential to solve the most pressing issues in the supply chain today,” said Felipe Capella, co-CEO and co-founder of Loadsmart. “Ultimately, our goal is to increase efficiency and reduce friction across the logistics ecosystem.”
Loadsmart had previously announced Flatbed Messenger, a flatbed marketplace launched in partnership with The Home Depot, and a new 35,000-square-foot headquarters in Chicago, signaling rapid growth.
