Tap into the Power of dexFreight

With dexFreight, users can find loads and capacity, negotiate online with multiple parties simultaneously, cryptographically sign agreements using smart contracts, and share electronic documents. Additionally, users can track shipments in real-time, settle transactions, and complete payments, effectively digitizing and automating the whole shipment lifecycle. dexFreight is complementary to TMS/FMS, ELDs, and loadboards. Our network is using web3 infrastructure to virtually consolidate the logistics industry while enabling the right tools to better utilize today’s existing capacity.

Our Vision: Be the facilitating force that coordinates world logistics, encourages collaboration and incentivizes a fair equitable distribution of value.

Our Mission: Build the universal decentralized, open-source network that enables collaboration and facilitates the coordinated movement of goods while bringing liquidity to the supply chain.

The Problem

A Multi-Billion Dollar Communication Problem

We  are working to solve the two major problems of the logistics industry: fragmentation and lack of liquidity.


We are initially focused on the trucking segment of the logistics industry, this $790B segment (source) in the U.S. is made up of 900,000+ trucking companies, 91% of them running 6 trucks or less. (source) 17,000+ freight brokers and millions of shippers, all using different Transportation Management Software (TMS), Fleet management software (FMS), load boards, electronic logging devices (ELDs) and other individual systems, which causes each individual company to function in its own closed network. This results in a lot of waste, (source) with 1 out of every 4 trucks running empty. Loads and capacity can not be efficiently matched, much less optimized if they live in different networks and cannot see each other. While there is a lot of discussion about  the driver shortage being the root cause of the inefficiencies, we believe the solution starts by better utilizing our current active capacity.

Lack of Liquidity

In order to get paid quickly, trucking companies often end up selling their invoices with unnecessarily high interest rates. 

Normally, trucking companies get paid after 37 days of providing their services. In the meantime, truckers have to pay for gas, tolls, and other expenses, causing cash flow issues. Given that most of these trucking companies are small businesses, they often solve their cash flow issues by factoring in their receivables for a 3% fee. 

The Solution

A Decentralized Logistics Infrastructure

Reaching real optimization in trucking and logistics can not be done at scale with multiple siloed platforms competing for data and market share capture. dexFreight is bringing optimization through a cooperative backend, where carriers, freight brokers, shippers, and other industry service providers like ELDs, TMS, and load boards can connect and exchange live market information safely, experience cross-company workflow automation through the use of smart contracts, and most importantly, preserve the privacy and ownership of their data. This is the solution to the multi-billion dollar empty mile problem. (Source)

Since every agreement in dexFreight is cryptographically signed by the transacting parties, a digital representation of each rate confirmation is created using  NFTs or non-fungible tokens through our patent-pending technology. These digital assets with a defined dollar value are used as collateral to source liquidity in the deFI (decentralized finance) ecosystem, giving users access to immediate, cheaper, and programmable financing options, effectively getting carriers paid as soon as they deliver, hence solving the liquidity problem.

The Market

A Growing Network Promising to Connect the Entire Logistics Industry

Even though dexFreight is designed as a global scalable platform for multiple modes of transportation, our initial focus is the US trucking market:

TAM: 2019 Domestic US Trucking market $791 billion USD (source)

SAM: For-hire full truckload market is $360 billion USD (source)

SOM: Our 5th year goal is to process 2% of the for-hire full truckload market, $8 billion (USD) by year 2025 in the US. 

Our Traction

Miles of Milestones

In 2020, 16.5 million shipments were posted in dexFreight worth over $18 billion dollars giving plenty of options to carriers in the network, as a result over $2.1 million in freight spend were booked and processed on dexFreight. 

In July 2020, we launched the beta version of our decentralized invoice financing solution “dexFI” (patent pending), this service is valued by carriers and brokers so much that 12% of all transactions were financed using it, generating $328K in topline revenue.

In Q3 2020 we added drayage to our marketplace, this functionality helps to streamline the process of moving containers between ports, ramps, and warehouses. This service was well received by our users since it helps them deal with the port congestion and capacity crunch caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. (Source)

We are currently working in partnership with Hutchison Ports ICAVE, the operator of Port of Veracruz, to release our drayage functionality as the spearhead for the Mexican market. (Source) Hutchison Ports is one of the largest port operators in the world. Veracruz, one of the 5 ports they operate in Mexico, moves over 1.12 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) making it the third busiest container port in Mexico and the most important in the Gulf of Mexico. (Source)

Today, we have over 2,700 companies registered in the network. Our main focus is to accelerate adoption through strategic partnerships with other freight-tech platforms and through the release of features and incentives for carriers to book loads already available in dexFreight.

Industry Recognition

Throughout the journey of developing dexFreight, we have played an important role in educating the industry about the potential of blockchain technology. As thought leaders, we have been speaking at some of the most important events for the freight and blockchain industries, including SXSW, MarketWaves, Transparency 19, BITA, TIA Conference, LaBitConf, Blockchain Academy Mexico, SmartFlorida (formerly known as Florida Blockchain Foundation). 

Our efforts have been rewarded with nominations to multiple awards:

  • Blockchain Awards Latin America as an "Inspiring Project" for our contributions to the ecosystem. (Source)
  • FreightWaves FreightTech 100, one of the most disruptive and innovative freight technology companies in 2018, 2020, and 2021. (Source)
  • Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine as an SDCE 100, one of the top supply chain projects in 2019 and 2020. (Source)

At the end of 2019 we were selected among 225 competing companies for the 500 startups Miami Growth Program, and successfully graduated in batch #2. More recently we have completed the Endeavor scale-up program in Q2 2021.

We are also proud to be included in the World Economic Forum’s whitepaper, highlighting the deployment of blockchain for supply chains (Source). 


As entrepreneurs solving some of the most challenging problems in logistics, we are often trying technologies not necessarily available to the general public. Forging partnerships and closely working with the teams behind these innovations, is critical to evaluate and successfully implementing them. Here are some examples:

MakerDAO, Centrifuge, Ocean Protocol, Chainlink, RIF Blockchain Solutions, RSK, Money on Chain, TruckerCloud, TruckPark, TAI TMS, Port community of Veracruz.

It is very important for us to deeply understand our customers, and actively participate in industry discussion, being part of industry associations helps us achieve those goals, here are some of the associations we are members of: Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), and the Florida Blockchain Foundation (FBF).  

What We Do

Streamlining Logistics for a Better World

We are taking to market a FinTech-enabled logistics market network, and the necessary underlying web3 infrastructure (decentralized protocols and peer-to-peer communication layer), to enable freight-tech companies to safely exchange real-time loads and capacity availability, while preserving the ownership of their data.

In the dexFreight market network, users can…

  • Find loads and capacity

  • Negotiate online

  • Verify the reputation of counterparties

  • Establish agreements and rate confirmations using smart contracts

  • Share electronic documents

  • Track shipments

  • Settle transactions and complete freight payments.

Our mobile application, available in both Google and Apple stores, is designed for drivers and owner-operators to manage the whole shipment life cycle, providing smart routing, recording geofenced events, and collecting signatures for documents like bill of ladings, proof of delivery, etc. These events trigger the workflow in the smart contract automating processes between companies from booking to payment.



Machine-Learning Algorithms

Instead of reaching out to brokers for their available loads or posting trucks in multiple load boards spending hours hoping to find a match,  carriers can use dexFreight machine-learning algorithms that automatically find the best loads for their equipment.


ELD Providers

Our platform is connected with 80% of the ELD providers so the network knows the position of the equipment in real-time, and the driver's location relative to their HOS (hours of service) clock for better load matching.

Smart Rate Confirmation

One of the most important innovations is our Smart Rate Confirmation. Using smart contracts once the terms and conditions are set and signed by the parties, it secures them in the blockchain so they cannot be changed without your approval and electronic signature. These agreed terms and conditions will self-execute, meaning if users deliver according to terms, your payment will be executed as agreed. 

The Business Model

A SaaS Model to Keep Your Shipments Moving

Different from other platforms, dexFreight does not extract rent from every transaction. Our freemium business model focuses on optimization at scale, allowing users to match loads and capacity at no cost while delivering value-added solutions through premium services and SaaS tools including:

  • Immediate payment to carriers (dexFi)
  • Price predictions (dexRate)
  • Drayage marketplace
  • Optimized load selection
  • Load consolidation and load chaining.
  • Smart routing considering HOS, fuel, weather, parking, and other variables.
  • Third-party services.

Alternative Invoice Financing with dexFI

Quick payment to carriers is now more important than ever before with shippers and carriers competing for capacity. dexFi, a patent pending low-cost alternative to invoice factoring, enables our users to pay carriers as soon as they deliver without compromising their cash flows.

How We Are Different

Leveraging Smart Contracts and Machine Learning to optimize at scale.

A smart contract is a computer program that contains the terms of the agreement between parties directly written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein, exist across a distributed, decentralized blockchain network and are intended to automatically execute, control and document relevant events and actions. As a result, transactions are trackable and irreversible.

We are using this powerful technology to facilitate transactions between freight companies that don't necessarily know or trust each other. By providing an immutable performance-based reputation system and standardized business rules, we reduce the cost associated with slowly building business-to-business trust, which usually relies on unenforceable legal agreements like rate confirmation sheets.

At a larger scale, we used the same principles to implement the necessary protocols to create an open logistics network; designed as a network of networks for freight-tech companies to exchange live market information (real-time loads and capacity availability). This enables end-users to book shipments across multiple networks without having to leave the platform or systems they currently use. This is the solution to the walled garden problem, where shipments and capacity can not be matched because they reside in siloed networks.

This open network combines all available loads and capacity, enabling freight-tech companies to leverage the full power of machine learning algorithms to match and optimize at scale, removing the inefficiencies of the system and gradually reducing empty miles driven by trucking companies. Furthermore, they can develop new products and services to their customers by leveraging the booking to payment functionality powered by blockchain-based agreements and payment rails.

The Vision

En Route to Global Leadership

dexFreight's vision is to simplify logistics for a better world by enabling coordination at scale, encouraging collaboration, and incentivizing a fair and equitable distribution of value. 

We plan to expand globally with the 2022 release and rollout of the Spanish version of our Web 2.0 platform in Latin America. By 2023, we expect to reach 1 million full truckloads and drayage shipment processing with freight spend over $1 billion.


By 2025, dexFreight aims to process $8 billion in freight spend on shipments from booking to payment. By then, we will be a global technology player in the logistics industry servicing additional verticals with presence in the Americas, European and Asian Markets.


Logistical Leaders

With an average of 20 years of experience, managing and growing both SMBs and Multi-billion dollar organizations, our multidisciplinary leadership team brings together the necessary knowledge and capabilities in logistics, technology, and entrepreneurship. We understand firsthand the pains and challenges of the industry.

Message From Our CEO

Over $28 billion has been invested in logistics by VCs since 2018. The rise of Amazon and eCommerce has increased the ever-growing importance of efficiently moving goods. With COVID-19 impacting the economy, finding an efficient method for shipping products has only grown. 

As an industry made up primarily of small businesses working independently from one another, such fragmentation leads to massive inefficiency and waste.

dexFreight leverages the power of blockchain technology and self-executing contracts (smart contracts) to streamline and improve logistics back-office operations. Our solution focuses on better utilizing existing market data to provide more efficient solutions and visibility to the industry.  

The dexFreight team is composed of proven experts in transportation and technology. Our current investors and early adopters are from the industry. They believe the industry needs a new solution to assure the efficient movement of goods more cost-effectively and the flow of payment to those providing these much-needed services.

The industry is ripe for improvement. With dexFreight, the solution is just within reach. Join us!

Hutchison Ports Mexico to Adopt dexFreight to Improve Overall Ports Efficiency

4 days ago

Hello Supporters,

After months of hard work, we can finally announce that dexFreight has been selected by Hutchison Ports Mexico (HPM) to utilize its smart contracts and blockchain infrastructure to seamlessly and transparently organize container shipments at multiple ports terminals in Mexico.

The program will begin at the Port of Veracruz, an inland terminal in Hidalgo and Mexico’s largest port, Lazaro Cardenas with the potential to expand to additional HPM terminals throughout Mexico. It will include customs brokers, shippers, and small to midsize trucking companies for the orchestration of both import and export containers to and from the ports.

With the integration of dexFreight’s logistics market network, HPM customers will now have the ability to:

  1. Broadcast available loads
  2. Find and reserve available trucks for shippers and customs brokers
  3. Onboard carriers
  4. Access real-time cargo tracking
  5. Bid, track, and settle invoices

“Hutchison Ports Mexico's objective is to provide its customers with a technology solution that adds value to their experience and improves logistics services not only within the ports but beyond the ports as well,” said Jorge Lecona Sr., CEO at ICAVE, a maneuvering company in the Port of Veracruz that is owned by Hutchison Ports. “Container terminals are in a key position to allow complex supply chains to achieve their goals of efficiency and reliability, and make sure that cargo arrives safely, cost-effectively and on time to its inland destinations.

“To achieve this,” continued Lecona, “we need to connect with our customers, know more about their cargo, get a sense of the urgency and cost-sensibility of each individual shipment, and design integral logistics products that best suit their specific needs. That is what we are doing with dexFreight. We are using their revolutionary technology to connect with the users of our terminals, getting to know their specific needs, and helping them to arrange the logistics that best fulfill their requirements.”

“Our blockchain-based logistics market network is perfect for meeting HPM’s needs for orchestrating container shipments,” said Jim Handoush, president and CEO of dexFreight. “Our modular design and deployment in the cloud allows us to easily deploy globally. Mexico is our first stop, but we plan to be working with many other ports in the near future.”

HPM also plans to explore the further integration of dexFreight with its own proprietary service’s booking and container tracking systems that manage terminal appointments, gate access payments for customers, decentralized finance, among other services.

Hutchison Ports Mexico (HPM) is subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Hutchison Ports, the port and related services division of CK Hutchison Holdings Limited. HPM operates six terminals at four seaports and one inland port in Mexico where it serves 20,000 customers, including several Fortune 100 manufacturing companies, customs brokers, and trucking companies, with container loading, unloading, maneuvering and storage services. Hutchison Ports operates at ports in 26 countries across Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Australasia and the Americas where in 2020 it handled a combined throughput of 83.7-milllion TEUs.

dexFreight is Reducing Double Entry Processes through TAI TMS Integration

26 days ago

Hello Supporters,

In order to reduce “double entry,” dexFreight has integrated with TAI-Software, a leading Transportation Management System (TMS) used by more than 50 medium and large freight brokers in the US.

dexFreight’s marketplace allows brokers to find carriers using automated matching algorithms, followed by a complete workflow to book carriers, track shipments, and issue payments after delivery. Freight brokers often find it cumbersome to add shipment information in both their Transportation Management System (TMS) and other freight tech systems. 

AI and dexFreight are integrated with API to allow brokers/shippers to reduce double entry, bid and negotiate with carriers, have full visibility of shipments, and even payments. 

dexFreight and TAI are integrated in both directions via cloud-based API. 

That means when freight brokers add a shipment in TAI, they automatically appear in dexFreight’s shipment listing. These shipments then become visible to dexFreight’s 1900+ carrier network. When carriers bid, book, and move shipments using dexFreight’s web and mobile applications, that information is automatically forwarded to TAI and hence becomes available to the freight brokers in real-time. 

This kind of seamless integration saves time and effort to TAI’s customers as well as provides functionalities not typically available in a TMS, such as bidding and negotiation with a large carrier network and end-to-end traceability using blockchain. 

Just like TAI, we have other integrations in progress and will soon be announcing them. These are only the early stages of what could become a powerful logistics engine, open to carriers, brokers, shippers, as well as other freight technologies in the ecosystem. 

We are grateful for the incredible support we are receiving from the community! Our crowdfunding campaign is moving forward successfully, with over 550 campaign followers! You can also be part of this fast-growing network!

Global Spending on Blockchain Solutions is Projected to Reach 19 billion U.S. dollars by 2024

29 days ago

Hello Supporters,

A recent report by Statista shows there is increasing use of blockchain solutions globally. Some of the most promising features of this technology include data validation, data access, and identity protection. According to the report, global spending on blockchain solutions was approximately $950M in 2017 and is forecasted to reach $6.6B by the end of 2021. In the next 3 years, it is estimated to grow by over 180%, projected to reach $19B by 2024.

The Future of Logistics

dexFreight's  CIO & Co-founder Rajat Rajbhandari was quoted in a recent article by Middle Market Growth about the use of Blockchain technology in the logistics industry. Research shows that lack of visibility over business operations is a main issue in the industry. Rajat stated that the transparency and security blockchain provides, as well as the ability to offload back-office tasks could help reduce costs for companies.

“We believe blockchain will usher in a new era of collaboration between [carriers] to reduce the cost of onboarding new suppliers, share cybersecurity threats, global identification, component traceability, and more"

The Future Starts Here 

The increasing interest in blockchain solutions, in addition to the need for better visibility and traceability in the logistics industry, makes dexFreight an optimal investment opportunity. dexFreight's market network is already seeded with over 50 thousand loads per day worth approximately $3B in freight spend.

dexFreight provides secured parking spots for truck drivers via TruckPark partnership

about 1 month ago

Hello Supporters,

Truck drivers are the workhorse of the logistics industry. Truck drivers have consistently voiced concerns about the inadequacy of safe parking spots and mentioned it as one of the topmost problems plaguing the industry. dexFreight’s mobile app is used by truck drivers to receive shipment information, track location, record bill of lading, proof of delivery, payment receipts, etc. Hence, we recognized early on that finding safe and secured parking spots is critical for the drivers to be able to pick up and deliver shipments on time. 

That is why we partnered with TruckPark Inc. It is rated #1 secured parking service provider in the US. It allows truck drivers and dispatchers to reserve parking spots at 220+ secured locations.

TruckPark’s secured parking spots are shown by green circles. Shipments available in dexFreight are shown by grey dots. The map shows availability of secured parking spots at major markets.

Truck drivers using dexFreight’s mobile app can easily find TruckPark locations and reserve spots along the way when drivers are transporting shipments. The mobile app shows available parking spots in the proximity of their current location. Drivers/dispatchers can also reserve spots if they know when they will be taking breaks.

dexFreight is committed to the safety and security of truck drivers as well as providing them inexpensive tools to find better loads, rate predictions, ability to plan multi-load trips, as well as our patent-pending blockchain-powered next-day payment.

dexFreight presented positive growth in July 2021

about 2 months ago

Hello Supporters,

We are proud to share with this amazing community the growth progress of dexFreight’s logistics market network throughout the month of July. 

  • Total freight spend from active companies in dexFreight grew by 22% compared to June 2021. For those of you not familiar with the industry, freight spend refers to the cost paid to the carrier for transporting goods.

  • dexFreight carrier network keeps growing at a 12% MoM rate. Most of these carriers are referred by existing customers. Compared to other freight-tech companies, carriers on dexFreight have visibility over available loads posted by other customers outside of their existing network, opening new business opportunities for them.  

  • dexFreight market network supports both truckload and drayage freight, growing at 20% and 24% rates respectively during July 2021.

With all this being said, we just wanted to remind you still have 2 more days to receive 10% bonus shares. Early Bird Bonus ends this THURSDAY.

Smart contracts and wallets will turn trucks to next-generation logistics workhorse

2 months ago

In this blog post, we argue that automated trucks (especially Levels 4 and 5) will be embedded with digital wallets connected with smart contracts to interact with blockchain to:

  1. spend and receive digital payments. 
  2. be an integral part of artificial intelligence (AI) driven workflow automation.
  3. create business innovations such as fractional asset sharing. 

At dexFreight, we believe the next level of innovation in blockchain technology is the direct participation/integration of physical assets with the underlying ledger.

We can all agree to disagree on the year automated trucks (Levels 4 and 5) will be available at a nearby dealer. However, we all can agree that it is not a matter of if, but when it will happen. Level 4/5 means a truck can function without a driver physically present in the cab or in a remote control room. Einride and Volvo are two companies actively testing Level 4/5 automated trucks. At present, the focus of truck manufacturers is to ensure safety features work flawlessly.

However, driving a truck is not only about going from point A to B safely. A driver performs many non-driving functions to satisfy a contract between shipper and carrier — collecting and sending bills of lading and proof of deliveries, gathering accessorial charges, informing shippers about the truck’s status, paying for fuel and services. These tasks will have to be digitized and automated in order to be truly driverless. We also think when Level 4/5 trucks are ready for the market, AI+sensors will play a major role and potentially take over many digital functions that a driver performs.

dexFreight is included in the LogTech 2021 map by Alcott Global

2 months ago

Hello dexSupporters!

dexFreight has been included in the LogTech 2021 map. We are grateful to the Journal of Commerce, Alcott Global, Refashiond Ventures, Cambridge Capital, Thetius, and The Worldwide Supply Chain Federation for including dexFreight in it. dexFreight is a multi-sided platform built on open protocol powered by blockchain,  even though, we don't squarely fit in the "freight brokerage software" box, we are looking forward to new categories in this map as innovative business models like ours servicing the logistics industry emerge.

Our decision behind raising our Seed B round through crowdfunding

2 months ago

For the last two and half years, we have been working towards our goal of simplifying logistics for a better world. Our thesis identifies the high fragmentation, low level of digitization and lack of liquidity as the root causes of many of the problems of our industry, plagued with manual processes, delayed payments, low visibility, elongated transit times, empty miles with its respective environmental impact, counterparty disputes and lack of trust. We believe we can address these challenges through a shared open logistics network running on decentralized protocols and Web 3.0 infrastructure, to allow freight companies to exchange real-time load and capacity availability, and transact with each other from booking to payment using smart contracts, while preserving data ownership and keeping a fair share of the value they create by participating in the network.

We started our early days by evangelizing the power and prospects of blockchain technology to the logistics industry. We quickly realized that was not enough, so we decided to build our marketplace using conventional web2 infrastructure as the interface for the users to experience this disruptive technology first hand. Since then, we have received support and validation from multiple thought leaders in both the logistics and blockchain industries.

As of today, we have raised over $3.2 million from angel and strategic investors, including freight brokers, shippers and trucking companies, who understand firsthand the pains and challenges of the industry and the potential of blockchain as the solution through the use of smart contracts.

With their support, we have launched our full truckload and drayage marketplaces; dexFi, a patent-pending alternative to freight invoice factoring to get carriers paid as soon as they deliver. In addition we have developed machine learning algorithms and the underlying protocols that make all of this possible and scalable.

With a growing network of over 2,700 logistics companies registered, and with freight spend growing at 46% quarter over quarter, we are now entering the next phase of rapid scale-up, moving forward with our vision of fair and equitable distribution of network value among those contributing to its success. For this reason, after careful consideration of the current US regulatory environment, we have decided to take advantage of the recent SEC amendments to the Reg CF rules, that allow startups to raise up to $5MM through crowdfunding. This kind of fundraising facilitates non-accredited investors and retail investors, including truckers, dispatchers, supply chain professionals, technology enthusiasts, etc. to have ownership of dexFreight.

Let this be an open invitation not only to those that have supported us from the beginning but also to anyone interested in joining us. Together we will shape the future of global logistics.
