It combines proprietary software with a team of bilingual experts to seamlessly and transparently manage end-to-end cargo movement in a single platform, offering shippers freight, customs, insurance and trade finance in one place.

The funding round values Nuvocargo at $250 million, more than 40 percent higher than in late 2021, the company said. Nuvocargo has raised more than $75 million to date.


Nuvocargo plans to use the funds to grow its platform and expand from its current focus in Laredo, Texas, to other major border crossings between the U.S. and Mexico.

“With this expansion, the company seeks to capitalize on growing demand in the region and bring its integrated solution and cross-border expertise to even more shippers and carriers,” the company said.
