Austin shipping startup Mothership poised for swift growth

Mothership, which makes last-mile delivery software for freight companies, moved to Austin last year and is now rapidly expanding.

Mothership, a software company that makes a platform for short-haul freight shipping operations, is looking to grow its team and expand its global reach after moving to Austin last year. 

The company, which was founded in 2017 in Los Angeles, is focused on last-mile shipping by connecting companies and their freight to nearby truckers.  

The company recently raised $76 million, and plans to use the funding to expand its platform and add to its employee team.

Mothership’s platform works by matching independent truckers with companies who need products — such as apparel, food, beverage, retail or hardware —  delivered short distances that same day. Businesses can book one or hundreds of shipments on Mothership’s website, or integrate them directly into the system.  The company’s software then dispatches these shipments to local truckers.
