SmartHop is an artificial intelligence-powered platform that helps small trucking companies make smarter decisions, enabling them to make more money and have control over their business.
SmartHop helps Truckers, and Small Carriers make better and faster decisions when searching, planning, and booking their Loads on the Spot Market by reducing the uncertainty of the outcome they’ll get.
SmartHop was founded in 2016 by Joaquin Brillembourg, Guillermo Garcia, and Miguel Sucre. The company is headquartered in Miami, Florida.
SmartHop's AI-powered “business-in-a-box” solution helps owner-operators compete with the big carriers by reducing operational costs, streamlining load booking and providing access to the vast broker networks previously only available to large carriers.
SmartHop’s load network helps small owner-operators in the spot market pick the best loads from the largest pool, reduce dead hauls based on proximity and availability of load opportunities, and navigate fluctuations in the spot/contract market.
SmartHop is backed by Union Square Ventures (USV), Equal Ventures, Greycroft, RyderVentures, Las Olas VC and others. The company raised $12M in a Series A round on Feb 10, 2021. This brings SmartHop's total funding to $16.5M to date.
