The Logixboard story
Logixboard was founded in 2016 by brothers Juan and Julian Alvarez. The idea for Logixboard surfaced while Juan was working at an international freight forwarder, and saw first hand the inefficiencies and manual processes that plagued the freight forwarding customer experience.
It was there that they solidified their belief that technology was the future of freight forwarding, and that the industry would be dominated by people-first businesses fueled and amplified by technology.
They moved to Seattle where they caught the attention of investors and high-level software engineering talent from companies like Amazon and Microsoft.
Soon after, they began to get traction in the market and attention from a worldwide audience.
Logixboard has now raised $50M in venture capital, employs over 100 people, and serves freight forwarders and customs brokers in 15 countries.
