Global Enterprise Retailers and Brands Turn to Flexe to Navigate Challenges, Add Resilience and Reduce Risk in Their Logistics Operations
SEATTLE, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Flexe, the programmatic logistics leader, announced its $119 million Series D funding round at a $1b+ post-money valuation.

Rowe Price Associates, Inc. and T. Rowe Price Investment Management, Inc. and Tiger Global.

"Flexe has demonstrated that programmatic logistics deliver value for the world's most demanding companies. We're pleased to partner with a category creator that is transforming a massive industry."
Flexe Logistics Programs are an increasingly critical aspect of its customers' operations. Six of the ten largest retailers and four of the five largest consumer packaged goods companies work with Flexe to run programmatic logistics as part of their supply chain strategies.
"Despite changing economic conditions, Flexe added nearly as many enterprise customers in the first six months of 2022 as it did all of last year and continues to see strong demand," said Karl Siebrecht, Co-Founder and CEO at Flexe. "Our model allows organizations to scale fast in strong economic environments and reduce risk, capital investment and long-term commitments when they face uncertainty."
