Flock Freight exists to make the freight industry a better place for shippers, carriers, and the environment. Our goal is to end the tug of war between shippers and carriers by giving shippers top-tier shared truckload service and helping carriers maximize revenue with multi-stop loads. The environment wins as well, with our guaranteed carbon neutral service: FlockDirect. We offset the emissions of all FlockDirect shipments at no extra cost to our customers. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do.
Our mission is to reimagine existing freight processes by relentlessly eliminating inefficiency and waste through shared truckload shipping.
The freight industry is infamous for inefficiencies that are — in some cases — almost 100 years old. It’s time for a change that lets shippers move freight in a way that treats the environment and drivers with care.
Oren is dedicated to working on — rather than in — the freight industry, and won Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur Of The Year® award for San Diego in 2020.
Logistics and innovation run through Oren’s veins. Following his parents’ footsteps, who created their own freight forwarder after years with Foreman’s van line, he founded his own 100-truck fleet at age 20, providing white-glove freight service throughout the U.S. and Canada. Next came SolSource, Oren’s first brokerage, which services major clients like Whole Foods and opened his eyes to the unnecessary complications and inefficiencies of LTL shipping.
Now, after 20+ years in freight, Oren’s built the solution that’s revolutionizing the freight industry: Shared truckload.
