About us

Founded in 2014, Crux Systems provides cargo owners, freight forwarders, and trucking companies real-time status and location of import containers coming into North America, all in one place. This data informs supply chain planning by driving actionable insights that can reduce dwell times, demurrage fees, and hours spent tracking containers.

In 2019, Crux Systems joined Flexport to further empower shippers globally with visibility and control over their inventory in motion and unlock lower and more predictable supply chain costs. With a shared vision and commitment to transparency, customer-centricity, and efficiency, Crux Systems and Flexport are building an Operating System for Global Trade with the intention to enable clients to track every container in the world, making global trade even easier for everyone involved.
