by Kristi Marvin on 2022-02-09 at 7:12am

This week, we speak with Lily Shen, CEO and President of Transfix, and G Squared Ascend I’s CEO, Ward Davis.

Transfix entered into a $1.1 billion dollar combination agreement with G Squared Ascend I in September and is disrupting the freight trucking industry with software tools helping both shippers and carriers manage their operations.

We talk about how the past year’s supply chain challenges have put a spotlight on the logistics technology space, while G Squared Ascend I CEO Ward Davis also joins us to discuss some of the longer-term financial alignment features that his SPAC included in the deal and why Transfix stood out from the pack.

Take a listen.
