Companies sometimes need to ship less than a full truckload’s worth of stuff. But rather than sending shipments on partially filled vehicles, Flock Freight’s platform enables multiple clients to share space on one truck, which means cheaper prices and fewer emissions. “We’ve got to do our part to save the world,” says founder and CEO Oren Zaslansky, who counts Volvo among his clients. What’s good for the planet appears to be good for business: Flock Freight gained unicorn status in October by raising $215 million at a $1.3 billion valuation.
