EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota (March 18, 2021) — Global logistics company C.H. Robinson announced that Freightview, its transportation management system for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), is recognized as the FedEx 2021 Compatible Solution of the Year.

Robinson Director of Platform Integrations. “Freightview’s integration with FedEx is one of the ways that we help these companies benefit from the latest supply chain technology so they can save time and money, compete in a challenging environment, and meet customer demands.”

The FedEx Compatible Program, which Freightview joined in 2018, features software solutions that are focused on enhancing e-commerce, SMB, and freight automation operations.
