Seamless, efficient global supply chains for everyone. We don’t believe that the competitive advantages that come with digitally-enabled supply chains should be exclusive. And we certainly don’t believe that a business’s supply chain should be a burden or a headache. It’s time to turn it into your point of power, not pain.
Our story began in 1969 in a midwestern U.S. town, when a software company teamed up with North Star International on a cutting-edge logistics project. Together, they built a powerful, flexible software platform to automate transportation management for a key global customer, and combined their expertise to offer the software along with freight forwarding, customs brokerage, and global logistics services. Merging these efforts to create a powerhouse third party logistics (3PL) provider just made sense, and we chose to lead our new venture with the name of software that started it all: Navegate.
Since then, our customer base has grown, as have their supply chain needs. Our platform has grown and evolved to offer unparalleled control and visibility over supply chain processes, and our team of logistics experts has spread to cover 6 offices in two countries.
