Our Story

Almost every object around you has been in a container at some point. A massive share of these goods are moved by freight forwarders, 80% of whom are small and medium-sized - who mostly organize shipments via email.

AGX helps these forwarders by providing them with the digital toolset so they can focus on their superior operational service.

We are a team uniting decades of experience in forwarding, tech, and consulting. We are based in both Europe and Asia.

Our Vision

Our vision is to let small-, and medium-sized freight forwarders compete with digital freight forwarders head on, making collaboration between supply chain actors so easy that global supply chains become plug and play.

We do this, in the first step, by building a communication and collaboration platform that cuts down on unnecessary emails and double data entries by connecting relevant data sources. This creates transparency, letting SME freight forwarders focus on value-adding activities.
