Our Team strives for excellence reflected in the quality and innovation of our product
We are committed to diversity, equality and inclusion believing it makes us stronger, smarter and better
KlearNow was born out of thinking about things differently. From not accepting the status quo, to believing there had to be a better way to service brokers, importers and carriers. From believing that advances in technology could and should be applied to a category long dormant of innovation.
From a conviction that the difference was going to be the people behind the company, who would represent a diverse and rich experience in solving the problems the industry faced through technology with the passion to make a change.
The global supply chain logistics market is highly fragmented with documentation processes that are complex, labor-intensive, error-prone, and time-consuming. We saw an opportunity to simplify and automate processes.
We created a smart Logistics as a Service (LaaS) platform that connects data, people, processes, and organizations to enable new levels of visibility and productivity that reduce logistics costs and create better customer experiences.
Our AI-powered platform eases supply chain bottlenecks by digitizing paper-based transactions and enabling customs brokers and transporters to deliver superior real-time visibility needs of importers, exporters, and freight forwarders.
With a leadership and advisory team steeped in technology, AI and global logistics expertise, we felt there had to be a better way to simplify the dated supply chain logistics systems and workflows. Turns out there is.
