Freightos first quarter of 2024 exceed management expectations

Freightos Limited, booking and payment platform for the international freight industry, today reported preliminary first quarter 2024 Key Performance Indicators.

In Q1 2024, Freightos continued to achieve operating milestones consistent with its long-term growth objectives.

Gross Booking Value (GBV) for Q1 2024 grew 14% compared to the same quarter last year, well above management’s forecast of 0-2% growth.

This outperformance stems mostly from elevated freight rates during the first quarter, related to the Red Sea crisis.

This emphasizes that the long term marketplace network effects of buyers attracting sellers and sellers attracting buyers continues unabated.

This expanding capacity not only diversifies the freight options available to the platform users, but also strengthens Freightos’ position in the logistics ecosystem, fostering a more dynamic and efficient marketplace.
