Transfix is a leading online freight marketplace that is on a mission to eliminate waste and inefficiency in the $700 billion trucking industry. Every year, 65 billion empty miles are driven by trucks in the U.S. and companies are spending excess time, resources and money arranging for the transportation of their goods.
