About us

The origins of Crux Systems are rooted in the founder’s long experience in the marine terminal industry. While passing countless trucks on I-80 between the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe, we realized there had to be a better way to bring efficiency to the transport of import containers. We set out to find the most simple, reliable and insightful way to help move cargo faster through marine terminals, and Crux Systems was born.

The name Crux Systems comes from the rock climbing world, a passion of our CEO. Once a climber gets past the crux of a route, the most difficult part of a climb, the rest is easy. Crux Systems helps cargo owners, terminals and truckers do just that – get through the most difficult part of the route quickly, and get on their way to their final destination.

The team

Eric Klein

CEO and Co-Founder

Eric has been involved with marine terminal products, companies and technology for more than 20 years, including 13 years at Navis where he lead an equipment automation product team. When he’s not thinking about how to make truckers and terminals more profitable, you can find him climbing and skiing around Lake Tahoe with his wife, three kids and dog.
