Our Mission

To reimagine and reinvent the freight industry by relentlessly eliminating waste and inefficiency. --- Flock Freight is reinventing the $40b LTL freight industry. We’re transforming the old way of shipping goods via the hub and spoke model by creating a platform that enables pooling multiple shipments into multi-stop, full truckloads. This creates massive efficiencies for shippers, drivers, and trucking companies – all while reducing total transit time, damages, and environmental impact. Modernizing one of the country’s oldest industries is a lofty goal. We're funded by GV and SignalFire and we’ve grown 25x in 3 years. Our team is obsessed with growing our customer base, constantly improving the technology platform, and delivering a superior customer experience. If you’re up for a challenge, check us out. The Flock Freight San Diego headquarters is located two blocks from the beach on Cedros Ave. in Solana Beach, with new offices opening in Chicago. --- Our Vision Create a transformative freight platform with a superior customer experience that delivers value      to shippers by reducing cost, damage, and transit time      to carriers by providing more profitable freight to customers and consumers by increasing supply chain efficiency      to the world by reducing inefficient consumption of resources Starting with algorithmic pooling of freight ---
