Fox Logistics Acquires Boxton’s Freight Automation Platform to Expand Freight Services Worldwide
Acquisition increases customer base by 500% to provide premium AI-powered freight services to hundreds of customers globally
Fox Logistics, the asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) provider that provides freight services to small, medium and large businesses, today announced the acquisition of freight automation platform Boxton. The acquisition of the platform marks Fox Logistics’ global expansion into air and ocean freight services. Fox Logistics will acquire more than 150 global customers and expand freight offerings for small and medium businesses.
Boxton automates the freight quote process, so customers can work directly with carriers to gain immediate access to the best freight rates in the industry. Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances robust API connectivity to provide customers with complete visibility into the shipping process with fast quotes and superior pricing.
“Boxton’s freight automation platform increases associate capacity fivefold and improves the user experience for our customers by meeting them where they already work, whether it’s Slack, Microsoft Teams or email. The result is faster, smarter, more reliable shipping that’s better for our planet,” said Matt Lawrence, CEO of Fox Logistics. “We are delighted with the relationships Boxton has with ocean and air freight carriers, and we will continue to grow those relationships. This is the future of freight.”
Boxton is a transparent platform for shippers looking for air and ocean freight quotes. The proprietary program automates freight sourcing to keep global supply chains running smoothly. Customers can access a marketplace of selected and approved global shipping companies that offer competitive pricing and enhanced service. Fox Logistics works with partners to identify the best service providers based on individual shipping needs.
AI cuts the time to get a freight quote from days to minutes by scanning emails and PDF quotes and uploading the information to the platform. The result is a comprehensive quote that clearly defines all charges. Shippers use data-driven technology to consolidate and track orders end-to-end. They can view real-time tracking information, manage documentation, communicate with different parties, and keep essential details in one portal to automate and reduce data entry.
Through Fox Logistics’ direct relationships with carriers, Boxton customers will benefit from competitive freight rates in all modes of transportation. Fox Logistics’ commitment to building strong relationships with the industry’s leading carriers will help protect Boxton’s customers from volatile price fluctuations and lack of capacity in tough markets.
“We launched Boxton to help the world’s most innovative companies better manage complex shipments so they can focus on growth,” said Warren Kucker, Founder of Boxton. “Fox Logistics’ ingenuity, focus on customer service and deep supplier relationships will continue to take supply chains to the next level.”
Fox Logistics currently provides over 99% on-time delivery services for its customers, and the company maintains superior customer service with a response time of minutes, not hours. Fox Logistics and Boxton customers can choose to easily track and pay carbon offsets through a partnership with The Carbon Fund. For more information, visit foxlogistics.com.
