Gebrüder Weiss USA: New Air & Sea Office Opened in Miami

Gebrüder Weiss is further expanding its presence in the USA, opening an air and sea freight office in Miami, Florida. Miami primarily handles imports from Asia for onward transport to South and Central America, as there are only a few direct routes from Asia. The new location is situated in the immediate vicinity of the international airport, one of the country’s busiest cargo handling facilities. The company currently employs six people in Miami. Headed by Marcin Gonzalez, the location is set to keep growing and become a gateway for transports to the Latin American markets.

Since the country organization was founded in 2017, Gebrüder Weiss has continuously expanded its network of locations and services in the USA. Today, in addition to air and sea freight services, the logistics provider also offers its customers national and international full load services, heavy transports and specific logistics solutions, with the portfolio ranging from goods warehousing and local distribution to e-commerce solutions.

Gebrüder Weiss operates a total of five warehouse locations in the USA and employs 130 people in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, El Paso, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco – and now also in Miami.

Overhaul Secures $73M in Growth Financing, Expands its Foothold in Global Supply Chain Visibility, Risk and Compliance Market

Funding enhances Overhaul’s platform spanning visibility, risk, compliance, and insurance solutions to help safeguard cargo and improve efficiencies

Overhaul, a software-based supply-chain visibility, risk, compliance, and insurance solution for the world’s leading brands, today announced $73 million in new growth capital including $38 million in equity and $35 million in non-dilutive debt. Growth equity investor Edison Partners led the investment with participation from strategic investors eGateway Capital, StepStone Group, and TRM Ventures. Stifel Bank provided the debt financing.

Overhaul will deploy the capital to expand globally, enhance products, and fund the recent acquisition of security services provider SensiGuard—a deal that firmly establishes Overhaul as the global leader in in-transit supply chain risk management. Previous investors Abbey International Finance, Avanta Ventures and Macquarie Capital also participated in the round.

Overhaul is expected to track more than $1 trillion in total moving cargo this year. The company has a 96% recovery rate for FTL cargo theft and an 80% loss ratio reduction as compared to the insurance industry benchmark. Overhaul operates globally and has more than 600 employees.

Global supply chain disruptions and volatile markets are creating strong demand for solutions that can stop disruptions before they occur. Unlike providers that focus on on-time arrival performance, Overhaul’s visibility, risk management and prevention capabilities give companies a real-time view into their supply chain so they can manage risk more effectively and reduce losses while improving overall performance.

In 2022, Overhaul was recognized as an Austin Inno Top Workplace, Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Company, Deloitte Technology Fast 500, G2 Supply Chain Visibility Grid, and as a Challenger on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms.

Redwood Logistics SVP Named a Cold Supply Chain Leader by Food Logistics

Redwood Logistics, one of the fastest growing logistics companies in North America, today announced that Brad Kosner, SVP of Business Development, has been recognized by Food Logistics as a ‘Rock Star of the Supply Chain’ for his achievements and vision in shaping the global cold food supply chain.

Through Kosner’s leadership, Redwood’s multimodal brokerage team was a reliable partner for customers looking to overcome significant disruption, including early 2022 carrier capacity crunches, which placed immense pressure on distributors to deliver on time. This obstacle was further complicated for food shippers due to limited availability of cold shipping options. Leveraging Redwood’s strong carrier relationships and technological solutions, customers were able to meet capacity limitations head on and uncover hidden efficiencies to exceed shipping expectations while remaining profitable.

Kosner has served in a variety of leadership roles with Redwood since joining the company in 2002. His recent accomplishments earning him this award include accelerating Redwood’s digital freight brokerage growth to overseeing 100,000 annual loads, establishing a “3PL Captaincy” to handle all non-asset moves for a new customer’s distribution center in Texas and opening a 300,000 sq. ft. warehouse for a shipper in California.

Food Logistics editors selected winners for being actively involved in understanding customers’ needs, creating solutions, ensuring the safe transport of cold food and beverages and adopting sustainable measures.
