Kingsgate Logistics Named in FreightWaves’ 2021 FreightTech 100 AwardsOctober 26 2020
Kingsgate Logistics, a family-owned, third-party logistics business, was named among the top 100 companies in FreightWaves’ 2021 FreightTech 100 Awards. This award honors disruption and innovation within the logistics industry. Kingsgate is proud and honored to have received this recognition.
Over the past year, Kingsgate has more than doubled their IT staff and made a seven-figure investment into advancing our logistics technology so that it may benefit our employees, carriers and customers. In addition to diving into areas like AI and machine-learning, Kingsgate is most excited about their entirely new customer facing portal – Kingsgate Compass.
Compass is a high-tech tool that is tailored to each individual customer’s shipping needs. It provides insights to customers through bringing visibility to shipments across the supply chain, providing robust analytics for their transportation team and creating purchase order visibility to vendors and shipping partners. This year, Kingsgate added an inbound PO module to the platform, giving shippers access to their inbound shipping months earlier than previously available thanks to custom integrations to various systems.
“We are thrilled to see our team receive this recognition thanks to the nominations of many customers and partners in the space,” said Tom Curee, Senior VP of Strategy and Innovation at Kingsgate. “To see our team bring unique solutions to the space in such a short time, makes us incredibly excited about what the future holds.”
Kingsgate has been fortunate enough to partner with several other major players in this space where logistics and technology intersect. Kingsgate is grateful to those who nominated their company for this award and appreciate the recognition for the strides they have made in this innovative logistics space.
Kingsgate would like to extend their congratulations to all of the other companies who received the 2021 FreightTech 100 Award and looks forward to attending FreightWaves LIVE@HOME on November 5th and 6th.
