Freightos was listed on Nasdaq in a grand ceremony with CEO Zvi Schreiber ringing the opening bell and "taking the next step in our journey to make global trade more efficient with the world’s global freight booking and payment platform."

"It took us over a decade of hard work to get here," Schreiber said at Nasdaq. "To our fabulous Freightos team around the world, including WebCargo, Clearit and 7LFreight a heartfelt: thank you, gracias, shukran, toda, Nandri, and xie xie. This is all of our celebration.

"We’re surrounded here by investors who have backed us for a decade together with the Gesher team, M&G, and other new investors. Thank you all. Our work is just getting started. We’re not going public to exit, but to double down and accelerate our investment and growth. Our journey together continues."

Going public is not an end goal, adds Schreiber. "On the contrary, today we raised more capital in order to finance our continued growth. And today we embrace the transparency and responsibility that comes with being publicly traded. We’re just getting started."
