Thursday morning representatives from, The Borderplex Alliance, the City of El Paso, and El Paso County announced that Forager is expanding to the Borderplex region.
Officials share that Forager is a cross-border logistics technology company that’s revolutionizing the trillion-dollar supply chain industry.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Forager to El Paso. Companies like these represent our community’s future, which will increasingly focus on our regional strengths” Mayor Oscar Leeser said.
Led by Co-Founder and CEO Matt Silver, Forager launched in 2018 to tackle the challenges of shipping truckload freight between the United States, Mexico, and Canada with innovative marketplace technology.
“A huge piece of our business is in and around the U.S./Mexico border, specifically in places like El Paso and Laredo. Those crossings are critical to the North American supply chain, so they’re critical to our operations,” said Forager CEO Matt Silver.
Since raising a $10M Series A in March of 2019, Forager has hired 68 fully remote employees based across the U.S. and Mexico.
“We’re a cross-border company and we want our team to continuously reflect that. The Borderplex Alliance serves that goal while also driving economic development to areas that are already key to our business,” Silver said.
“Forager has a reputation of being one of the fastest-growing cross-border companies in the technology industry, which is precisely the kind of company that we want in our community,” El Paso County Judge Ricardo A. Samaniego said. “They are innovative, forward-looking, and are ready to benefit from the strengths our region has to offer. Welcome!”
Jon Barela, CEO of The Borderplex Alliance added, “Our continued success as a region depends on attracting businesses like Forager. I’m grateful to Forager and to our partners in the city and county for helping us land this great company. 2021 is going to be an excellent year for our region.”
Forager plans to continue hiring within the Borderplex region and is seeking talented applicants for both carrier-facing and customer-facing sales roles.
