About Flock Freight

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.
