Simplifying global trade has been our mission from day one. Our exponentially growing team of more than 550 technology and logistics experts, forge ahead each day with the goal to deliver a highly transparent, frictionless and sustainable digital supply chain.
Our company is headquartered in Berlin, Germany, and currently has in total 12 offices across Europe and Asia, including Copenhagen, Hamburg, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. Leading manufacturers and e-commerce brands are among the 2.500 customers using Forto’s digitally-focused offerings as part of their supply chain delivery.
