goFlux raises $6m to expand digital freight services across the Americas

goFlux, a leader in the digital and financial integration of agricultural freight in Brazil, has successfully completed a Series A funding round, raising $6m.

This latest investment round, pivotal in scaling the company’s operations, was spearheaded by Capria Ventures, known for its focus on Generative AI applications in the Global South. The round also welcomed contributions from a mix of follow-on and new international investors including SP Ventures, The Yield Lab Latam, Blue Impact Global, Reflect Ventures, Arrebol Capital, and other notable names from the United States and Switzerland.

With a robust platform that integrates financial services into freight logistics, goFlux has set a benchmark in the sector. Their services range from a dynamic contracting platform to innovative financial products such as the goFlux NaConta for receivables anticipation.

With the fresh capital infusion, goFlux is poised to enhance its platform’s functionalities, ramp up its sales force, and improve overall security and compliance frameworks. A significant portion of the funding will also be funnelled into artificial intelligence capabilities, particularly for freight prediction, which will refine strategic planning and decision-making processes for their clients.

Furthermore, goFlux plans to extend its geographical footprint from Brazil to other key markets including Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Mexico, and the United States. This expansion is aligned with their strategy to address the broader needs of the logistics sector across the Americas, especially in industries like food, pulp and paper, civil construction, and steel.

The funding will also facilitate the launch of goFlux View, an advanced predictive intelligence solution that offers a futuristic outlook on freight trends. This tool is expected to leverage Generative AI to provide comprehensive, easy-to-interpret analytics for complex data sets, thereby enhancing operational efficiencies for users.

goFlux founder and CEO Rodrigo Gonçalves remarked on the successful funding round: “The success of this oversubscribed funding round gives us the confidence that we are on the right path. Our investors see immense potential in our unique business model, execution capacity, and our sustainable growth trajectory in Brazil and Latin America. The main highlight of this round is the interest from the international market, with 90% of investors from outside Brazil.”

Capria Ventures managing partner Will Poole commented on their investment, saying: “From the outset, we were impressed with the team’s vision and execution capabilities to revolutionize the agricultural freight landscape in Brazil and beyond. We see a huge opportunity for goFlux to not only promote access to underbanked SME carriers through its factoring product but also to apply Generative AI to enhance productivity and help their customers with easier decision-making and strategic planning in a complex data-rich domain.”
