Our mission is to reimagine and reinvent the freight industry by relentlessly eliminating waste and inefficiency through algorithmic pooling. Pooled shipments do not pick up and deliver along inefficient LTL routes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions up to 40%.
Our proprietary product, FlockDirect, seamlessly pools multiple freight shipments on a single truck to create efficiencies for carriers, savings for customers, and a smooth experience for all. Our innovative algorithm would be nothing without our brilliant people, who obsess over growing our customer base, developing our carrier network, and improving our technology platform.
Flock Freight aims to fundamentally change the freight industry across North America with FlockDirect—one pooled shipment at a time.
If the entire LTL industry switched to FlockDirect, the annual environmental impact would be equivalent to:

The single-solution shipping you’ve come to trust with AuptiX has gotten an upgrade. Introducing Flock Freight: the next step in our mission to revolutionize the way companies ship.
The LTL shipping industry is ripe for an overhaul, as slow service, paper logs, and missing goods have become the standard. The multi-billion-dollar industry and the millions of businesses it serves deserve modernization, and Flock Freight is well-positioned to make this happen, given our broad customer base, years of experience and proprietary technology.
After working with literally dozens of organizations large and small, young and old, I can honestly say the ability to translate effort into impact here is unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed. This company depends in no small part on the hard work of literally every employee, and its rapid growth is a testament to the quality of those people I’m privileged to call my coworkers.
Flock Freight has taught me what it means to be a part of something bigger than yourself. When you know everyone is equally dedicated to the company mission, you develop this new sense of purpose. The Executive Team has also created an environment where your voice can be heard and they are very transparent. Our CEO is very involved and always happy to chat with any team member. I am confident that Flock Freight has and will continue to equip me with the skills to further my professional career.
The purpose of Flock Freight is very easy to align with and the intentions of everyone involved are clear. The entire company operates like a team and everyone is held accountable for their work. In addition, the lively and upbeat working environment is complemented by fantastic office perks (awesome people, office two blocks from the beach, cold brew on tap, HIT classes on the roof, etc).
We have many really smart people coming together here trying to change the way the freight industry works and I wouldn’t trade the opportunity for the world.
