About the company

Cargado is an early stage technology startup revolutionizing how U.S.-Mexico cross-border logistics is executed. Founded by experienced entrepreneurs Matt Silver (second-time founder/CEO after a successful exit and long-time freight veteran) and Rylan Hawkins (CTO, Ex-Convoy, Ex-Microsoft, and previous founder).

Mexico has recently taken over the #1 spot as the United States’ leading trading partner. Laredo, TX is the number one port in the United States importing and exporting everything we need and use everyday. The need for simplifying the complexities of freight moving across the border, creating a more reliable and connected supply chain has never been greater. Cargado has strong competitive advantages in the connections, experience and understanding of the market to help solve these problems. Combining seasoned industry experience with world-class technology, the company is well-equipped to bring the logistics industry into the future.

We are well-capitalized and backed by several early stage supply chain-focused venture capital firms, including Ironspring Ventures, Zenda Capital, Wischoff Ventures, Sahil Bloom, and a few dozen entrepreneurs in logistics and technology.
