Portfolio Highlight: Channel19 – “The Operating System for Independent Trucking”
Channel19 is digitizing the independent trucking industry workflow with a unified platform designed to optimize operations, increase profitability, and drive sustainability.
To cater to independent truckers, especially those that might have less familiarity with digital tools, Channel19 has developed an intuitive platform that optimizes load selection, scheduling, real-time tracking, document sharing, and invoicing to ensure the highest possible revenue yield for customers. Channel19’s platform also offers efficient route planning that reduces unnecessary travel and limits empty return journeys, significantly reducing the environmental impact of refrigerated freight transportation.
Augment Ventures led the company’s Series Seed raise with participation by Accion Venture Lab, TMV, Overton Venture Capital, and Refashiond Ventures. Several Silicon Valley and freight tech industry angels also participated.

“We were fortunate to have Augment Ventures lead our seed round of funding. Augment Ventures’ network and experience in the supply chain space has already started helping Channel19 in building our reefer freight ecosystem. The ability to get in front of key industry players like C.H. Robinson and forging strategic partnerships will accelerate our efforts in building a dense network of reefer brokers and shippers on our platform.”
