Co-founder and CEO
Alexandra Griffon is the CEO and co-founder of BlueCargo.
She started her carrier in corporate finance, merger and acquisitions, and then in logistics - specifically in Port terminal operations software. After graduating from UC Berkeley where she met her co-founder, Laura Theveniau, they started working on Port operations and yard stacking algorithms for marine port terminals across Europe and the United States.
After a couple years, Alexandra and Laura launched the BlueCargo software to unstuck containers at the Port and shed light on the Port terminal’s blind spot.
BlueCargo is part of Y Combinator since 2018, and today is helping 700+ drayage trucking companies, brokers, freight forwarders and importers across the United States Ports.
BlueCargo is a data platform to help move containers faster in and out of port terminals, and helps in mitigating any late fees including demurrage, detention and per diem fees. It connects logistics providers and their customers together with the port, improving operations teams’ efficiency and alleviating costs burdens.
Alexandra grew significantly her team in 3 years, from a two-people start-up to a team of more than 30 people, and the business operations in all the country’s major ports. BlueCargo is a member of the Harbor Trucking Association in California, of the Bi-State in New York New Jersey and the IANA.
