Fresh off $1B funding round, shipping and logistics startup Flexport opens office in Seattle
March 13, 2019 / TAYLOR SOPER
The fast-growing shipping and logistics startup that just raised a massive $1 billion investment round led by SoftBank today opened a new office in Seattle. It’s the company’s 12th location and will help provide better support for hundreds of Pacific Northwest shippers that use Flexport to move freight. The downtown Seattle office, the company’s sixth U.S. outpost, will employ about a dozen employees, with plans to grow. It will house engineers, salespeople, and other roles. Flexport is the latest out-of-town tech company to establish a Seattle presence.
