HOUSTON – June 7, 2023 — Freight Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: FRGT) (“Fr8Tech”), a technology company offering its custom-developed Fr8App, an industry-leading freight-matching platform powered by AI and machine-learning that offers a real-time portal for B2B cross-border and domestic shipping within the USMCA region, today announces a new integration with Samsara, the pioneer of the Connected Operations™ Cloud.
With this integration, Fr8App customers can now leverage insights from Samsara’s vehicle telematics solution, which includes real-time GPS tracking, advanced diagnostic reporting, and streamlined compliance management. This will help organizations optimize their logistics operations and ensure the timely delivery of their goods.
The integration between Samsara and Fr8App is a significant development for platform users – shipper customers and carriers alike. It enables carriers who are already using Samsara’s tracking technology to easily share their location data with Fr8App’s digital platform. This integration means shipper customers who use Fr8App’s services can now access real-time tracking information from carriers using Samsara, without having to download any additional apps or take any extra steps. By having access to this real-time location data, Fr8App’s customers can make more informed decisions and respond quickly to any unexpected changes or delays in the shipping process.
As a result, this is a significant development that promises to continue to revolutionize the logistics industry and make shipping more efficient and streamlined for everyone involved.
Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud makes it easy for organizations to access, analyze and act upon real-time data from warehouses, trucks, trailers, and equipment to improve their safety, efficiency, and sustainability. With an open API, Samsara’s platform enables customers to connect their most important third-party applications and unlock a holistic view of their physical operations.
Javier Selgas, CEO of Fr8Tech, said: “We are very excited to integrate with Samsara to offer our customers an even better and more seamless experience. Fr8App’s commitment to integrating with key players in the logistics industry is unparalleled. With each new integration, Fr8App solidifies its position as the most connected and integrable platform for cross-border shipping in the North American continent. By connecting with industry leaders like Samsara, Fr8App continues to pave the way for streamlined logistics processes and improved visibility for customers. Fr8App’s dedication to integration is a testament to the company’s commitment to delivering the best possible service to customers and is a clear indicator of its continued success in the logistics industry.”
Juan Pablo Villanueva, Operations Director of Transportes Americanos, a transportation company with operations in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, further commented “As a carrier currently using Samsara for track and trace, I can confidently say that the integration with Fr8App has been a game changer for our business. Not only do we continue to benefit from Samsara’s reliable and efficient tracking capabilities, but now we can seamlessly share that information with Fr8App’s digital platform, offering Fr8App´s platform users real-time location updates without any additional steps or downloads required. This integration has greatly streamlined our operations and allowed us to provide an even higher level of service to our clients. We are very happy with the results and look forward to continuing our partnership with Samsara and Fr8App.”
This integration is now available on the Samsara App Marketplace.
