Our Story

Our story began in 1969 in a midwestern U.S. town, when a software company teamed up with North Star International logistics on a cutting-edge 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. Later, through acquisition we bolstered our domestic logistics and transportation services, providing domestic transportation expertise and a carrier network. By 2014, the merger had created combination of technology, international, and domestic products/services meant that we had grown into a powerhouse third party logistics (3PL) provider, and we chose adopt the moniker of the software that started it all: Navegate.
