Statesman Article Outlines uShip’s Growth and Innovation in the Shipping Industry

The Austin American-Statesman recently ran a feature story about uShip. Statesman writer and Austin tech veteran Lori Hawkins offers an overview of how we started as a company, where we’re going and what makes us “tick.” What did we learn? After exploding from a team of 40 to nearly 200 in just a few short years, we still know our open culture and roots as a small, lean business are inseparable from our growth. We’re proud to share this article with the community.

The article highlights that uShip:

  • Will soon occupy 26,900 square feet of downtown Austin office space with 200 employees
  • Introduced something the shipping industry has always lacked: a true marketplace
  • Offers multiple pricing formats, including auction, published rates and name-your-price
  • Is considered one of Central Texas’ most promising software companies
  • Facilitated $100M in shipping transactions in 2012 alone
  • Has raised $28M in venture funding since launch in 2004
  • Employs an executive chef who cooks lunch 5 days a week (Thanks, Hannah!)
