Weston LaBar, CEO - Harbor Trucking Association
Meet the team
Alexandra started her career in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. She graduated from ESSEC Business School and UC Berkeley where she met her cofounder, Laura, and started working together on yard stacking algorithms at various terminal operators’ systems in the United States and Europe. They discovered back then the painful lesson that everyone learned after Covid disruptions: ports are where all supply chains converge (around 90% of traded goods are carried over the waves), but they are also the biggest black box and bottleneck, resulting in safety stocks, frozen capital and billion dollars lost on inefficiencies, detention and demurrage fees. Alexandra launched BlueCargo to unstuck containers at the Port and shed light on the Port terminal’s black box. BlueCargo graduated from the prestigious Silicon-Valley based accelerator Y Combinator, that previously backed Flexport, Convoy and Shipamax, in the logistics space. In 3 years, Alexandra significantly grew her team, from a two-people start-up to a team of more than 35 people, and operations in all the country’s major ports.
Laura graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and UC Berkeley - majoring in computer science and machine learning. After two years in the advertising industry as a data scientist, she met Alexandra and decided to use her technical and analytical skillset on something impactful. Laura launched BlueCargo to empower transportation and logistics businesses of any size with the digital tools, data, and services they need to better serve global trade. BlueCargo aggregates hundreds of different sources of information and runs its algorithms to showcase only the most reliable data points. Operators at drayage and logistics companies, brokers, freight forwarders and shippers are, for the first time, empowered to adapt and make data informed decisions, such as rerouting their cargo in real time based on partner and location capacity. Under Laura's technical leadership, the company has already tracked millions of containers solved for hundreds of use cases and edge cases, making its recommendations more powerful every single day.
BlueCargo has offices close to the busiest US Ports: Los Angeles Long Beach and New York New Jersey and was founded by two female entrepreneurs, Alexandra Griffon (Chief Executive Officer) and Laura Theveniau (Chief Product Officer).Laura and Alexandra graduated from UC Berkley in data science, artificial intelligence and entrepreneurship and met as they were working on terminal operations and stacking algorithms for various terminals in the Port of Oakland and Terminal Operating Systems. They discovered back then the painful lesson that everyone learned from Covid disruptions: ports are where all supply chains converge (around 90% of traded goods are carried over the waves), but they are also the biggest black box and bottleneck, resulting in safety stocks, frozen capital and billions of dollars lost on inefficiencies, detention and demurrage fees.They created BlueCargo to solve this problem and empower businesses of all sizes with a reliable, predictable, and cost-efficient container supply chain.
The pandemic exposed significant deficiencies in global supply chains and inadequacies in the outdated manual systems used by shippers and carriers alike. Alexandra and Laura's experience as port terminal operators and data scientists uniquely positioned them to solve these pain points with an end-to-end SaaS solution
Founded in 2018, BlueCargo is the premier platform to monitor, forecast, and mitigate D&D charges at the port. We build software to help carriers, shippers, and logistics companies move equipment in and out of the port terminals faster.
