Online importing platform Mercado Labs is honored to have been selected as part of FreightWaves’ 2022 FreightTech 100, an annual award recognizing the top 100 companies changing the game in the supply chain space. This is the second year running that Mercado has been selected as a leading emerging technology business, having debuted in the Top 100 for the first time in 2021.

FreightWaves is an industry-leading provider of news, data, and analytics for the supply chain and logistics market. The FreightTech 100 Award was established in 2019 to honor innovation and tech disruption within the freight industry, and are based on nominations from FreightWaves readers. Last year alone, submissions exceeded 500 nominations for over 200 companies.

Other household brands making the 2022 list include Amazon Freight, C.H. Robinson, FedEx, J.B. Hunt, project44, Tesla, and Waze.

“We are so grateful to be selected as a part of FreightTech 100 for the second year in a row,” Mercado Marketing Specialist Kayleigh Hansen said. “The list of 100 is full of innovative and groundbreaking companies, and we feel honored to be considered on the same playing field as them. Even though Mercado was only established in 2018, we are already making an impact in the supply chain industry and are excited about some big announcements we’ll be making later this year.”

With the pandemic stirring up greater consumer demand, container shortages, and freight issues plaguing importers for the past two years, it’s more important than ever to take a holistic look at the international supply chain and how it operates. The FreightTech 100 provides a reassuring view that businesses are looking to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time, and provide solutions to create a more certain future.

Now that the Top 100 companies have been selected, FreightWaves is bringing together CEOs, industry leaders, and investors with supply chain and freight-related portfolios, to select the Top 25 companies as part of FreightTech 25. These top-tier companies will be unveiled at the F3 Virtual Experience taking place November 9-11, 2021.

About Mercado
Designed by importers for importers, Mercado has created an import order management system (iOMS) that connects and automates the global supply chain — connecting the 80% of the process that remains “offline” to make it easier for importers to buy and ship the products they sell. With enhanced supplier collaboration, real-time production management, and production controls, Mercado’s in-built features enable enterprises to re-prioritize supply chain convergence and harness the benefits of a unified business, including increased resilience, improved risk management, and accelerated innovation.
