About Us

Our story

With his deep understanding of logistics, it’s no surprise Drew McElroy was raised in a trucking family; as a boy, his parents named Andrew’s Express, their trucking company, as a tribute to him. Years later, after a successful term as president of his family’s 3PL, Drew set out on his own to improve the logistics industry and bring it into the 21st century.

In 2013, Drew met Jonathan Salama, one of Gilt Groupe’s first employees. Jonathan quickly rose through Gilt’s ranks as an expert software engineer, helping to build the original infrastructure behind the world-renowned flash-sale site.

Shortly after, Drew and Jonathan officially joined forces and launched Transfix. And now, they’re driving the logistics industry forward with their game-changing approach to freight management.

Our mission.

Believe it or not, the freight industry is a multi-billion-dollar market that still relies on pen, paper, and fax machines. At Transfix, we know there’s a better, smarter way to operate. It’s why we’re proud to create tech-based tools that promote visibility, productivity, and trust.

We aim to make logistics effortless, fair, and efficient through the use of market-leading technology.

Our core values.
