One of the early entries in the so-called and really misnamed “Uber for trucking” movement, Convoy found immediate backers with the likes of Jeff Bezos, Marc Benioff and Henry Kravis when it launched in 2015. Since then, hundreds of companies have tried to enter the field of digital freight matching, including Uber itself this year. But as competitors have come and gone, Convoy has remained.
