Our Encinitas origins
A lifelong Encinitas local, our Founder, and CEO, Oren Zaslansky, grew up in Leucadia and attended San Dieguito High School Academy. Today, Oren and his family live in Cardiff, just a few paddles south of his childhood home.
Oren has always seen Encinitas as a vibrant community with unmatched potential for growth, aspiring since childhood to establish a high-flying tech venture in the city. He was thrilled to bring the Flock Freight headquarters to downtown Encinitas in 2021.
To Oren, Encinitas is truly the most special place on Earth. Not only is the city chock-full of world-class talent, its residents are super passionate about where they live, what they do, and how they can make a difference.
Encinitas community involvement
As a member of the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, 101 Main Street Association and Encinitas4Equality, Flock Freight is driving positive social and environmental change in our community. We support the city at every opportunity, sourcing catering and other needs from local businesses and encouraging employees to shop in town.
To make a positive impact on a larger scale, we partner with local organizations for community events, like beach cleanups, and give back to nearby nonprofits, such as the San Diego chapter of the American Red Cross, North County Lifeline, and Feeding San Diego.
Our shared truckload solution, FlockDirect, is the freight industry’s first carbon neutral shipping option that shippers can book at point of sale — for free. The carbon offsets we purchase for FlockDirect shipments support sustainable infrastructure change.
We recently signed The Climate Pledge and committed to working toward 100% companywide decarbonization by 2040. To get there, our organization will measure and report our greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis, implement decarbonization strategies, and achieve a net-zero impact via carbon offsetting.
We give employees monetary incentives to use sustainable transportation methods. From reimbursement for public transit costs to allowance for electric vehicle purchases, Flock Freight employees have a range of options to choose from for low-impact commutes.
We help our team and greater community learn about sustainability by publishing informational content and hosting events that show them how to take up greener habits, like recycling, composting, and being conscious consumers.
We became a Certified B Corporation in June of 2020 because we wanted to build a business that benefits everyone, not just our customers.
B Corps are businesses that meet the highest standards of planet- and people-driven performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. We have five internal impact teams that keep Flock Freight focused on purpose and constantly push us to exemplify the B Corp motto: “using business as a force for good.”
