Janan Knust


Founder and CEO

In 20 years, Janan went from washing dishes to being at the head of a logistics company with annual sales of over US$ 100 million, after going through a path of hard work, full of learnings, successes and failures, where the decision to betting on human capital and the technological renewal of a highly analog industry have been key elements. Today, he's founder and CEO of KLog.co, leading tech-first freight forwarding company with presence in Latin America.

As a sought-out speaker, Janan dedicates time to giving motivational talks and sharing thoughts on how the future of logistics will be like, his view on how to tackle the digital transformation of the region and how with focus on talent success can be achieved, telling his own story as an example.

In 2021 he was selected as Endeavor Entrepreneur, a community that seeks to promote and enhance the entrepreneurial spirit in Chile and around the world.

    Latin America's Forwarding Tech Scene

    Hundreds of millions of dollars of capital have been plunged into the Latin American logistics industry the past few years, most in the form of backing tech-native third-party logistics providers. For the most part, the funding is designed to create digital powerhouses that can consolidate a fragmented industry heavily reliant on "local heroes." But as in other regions that have seen large-scale investment into logistics technology, the established set of incumbents don't have any plans to be wiped off the map. In addition, a few Latin America-based players saw the digital writing on the wall long before venture firms did and have been investing in digital operational and customer service capability for years. In this session, a group of existing players in the space give a lay of the land of how software is — and isn't — changing the nature of logistics in Latin America.
