CORAL GABLES, Fla., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — PayCargo, the leading payments network for the global supply chain industry, today announced a USD35 million investment led by global venture capital and private equity firm Insight Partners. PayCargo will use the capital to expand global adoption of its electronic payments network and accelerate investments in its market-leading technology.
As COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the adoption of electronic payments in the cargo market, the investment from Insight Partners comes at a time where vendors and payors are forced to move away from legacy, paper-based processes. PayCargo’s innovative, cloud-based solution has established a robust industry contactless payment ecosystem that enables payers to quickly and securely pay air and ocean carriers, maritime ports, ground handlers, freight forwarders, and customs brokers, amongst others. This allows for faster cargo release, elimination of inefficient manual processes and fees, improved transparency, cash flow management, as well as streamlined invoicing and account reconciliation.
“As the cargo industry rapidly shifts to electronic payments, PayCargo has established itself as the market leading platform for doing business by successfully automating the payments process and ensuring efficiency for both payers and vendors,” said Ryan Hinkle, Managing Director at Insight Partners, who will be joining PayCargo’s Board of Directors. “We are excited to work with PayCargo to continue to scale its global payments network and through our Insight Onsite team of ScaleUp and operational experts, help bring additional resources to its impressive list of customers.”
