Hello, we're Shipwell
Shipwell is a freight tech startup that connects the fragmented freight industry. Our platform helps customers instantly quote, book, and track freight shipments all within one single pane of glass. We help carriers manage their fleet and access freight through load boards and our Managed Services team.
Why Work with Us?
Unlike most startups, Shipwell has chosen to tackle a very unsexy part of the economy and solve the problems that come from a lack of digitization. Our team enjoys solving difficult problems and we challenge each other to grow. One of our core behaviors is “build the future and never settle” and we firmly believe that we are world changers!
An Insider's view of Shipwell
What’s the vibe like in the office?
The office has a killer view of the Texas Capitol building that never gets old. Our space is open-concept so that teams can collaborate on the fly and get things done quicker.
What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
Freight is fragmented, complicated, and opaque. Many parties in our industry rely on spreadsheets and antiquated methods to run their supply chain. Our goal is to bring shippers, 3PLs, and carriers into the future and add transparency with a smart, automated, and simple solution built with layers of sophistication and machine learning.

People Operations Specialist
How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?
Everyone on the team shows up with a unique perspective. We don't train people to be sales robots because sometimes new ideas can drastically improve how the entire team operates. That sort of ingenuity influences our entire company.
Customer Operations Manager
What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?
As Shipwell seeks to move the industry forward, we often build the bridge between archaic systems and powerful modern technology. It can be challenging to implement these bridge solutions, but we see immediate benefits for our customers in cost-savings and efficiency when they use what we've built. That impact keeps our team focused and motivated.
