Cargomatic app looks to take bite out of Big Apple freight

by Truck News

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Cargomatic, an Uber-style app that connects shippers with local truckers with available capacity, announced today it is moving into New York.

The company is looking to reshape how freight is shipped locally through its app.

“We are thrilled to bring Cargomatic to New York. We have experienced 10x growth over the past year, which makes us confident that the transparency and efficiency that Cargomatic provides will be embraced in the nation’s largest metropolitan region, and at its second busiest port,” said Cargomatic CEO Jonathan Kessler.

The company says local trucking represents US$82 billion in business.

“In New York, things move fast. Our growing network of shippers and truckers love how Cargomatic instantly connects them. Tracking their freight online in real-time gives shippers peace of mind, while truckers are thrilled to be making more money by filling empty space on their trucks,” said Dan Harman, general manager of Cargomatic’s New York office.

The company says shippers and logistics companies including Amazon, Boxed Wholesale, Capacity LLC and BNSF Logistics are using its service.
