Enable supply chain visibility with organized, accessible, predictive, and actionable data across every mode of transportation.

Why Supply Chain Visibility?

Supply Chain encompasses the building blocks of literally everything on this planet that is purchased. It has an outsized effect on everything from the price of wine in Wisconsin to global warming. Improving the efficiency of supply chain creates trickle down consequences that are massive and felt by literally everyone on the planet.

We wanted to be a part of that.

In a world where data has permeated every corner of our existence it was incredible to us that one of the oldest industries in the modern world had not managed to evolve alongside technology. Supply Chain is the epitome of Big Data and the perfect target for the modern AI and Machine Learning techniques we have developed and patented. 

Why ClearMetal?

The ClearMetal team is comprised of supply chain and logistics veterans as well as the world’s top talent in data science, AI, machine learning, and software engineering. We are all incredibly passionate and excited about the fact that we are solving some of the largest issues on earth — one shipment at a time.
