Job Appointments | October 14, 2019 By:

Blockchain logistics provider dexFreight has appointed Jim Handoush as the company’s president and chief executive officer (CEO).

dexFreight is a decentralized, blockchain-based logistics platform that allows shippers, carriers and other supply chain stakeholders to transact and collaborate more efficiently, transparently and securely. It is powered by an ecosystem of open source protocols using smart contracts and machine learning to deliver unprecedented visibility, transparency and a trust layer that is sorely lacking in today’s logistics process. dexFreight features an industry-first blockchain-based verified identity and objective reputation system that allows shippers and carriers to meet, find business and negotiate deals in a peer-to-peer marketplace with less friction.

Handoush brings to dexFreight more than 30 years of experience in technology, transportation, and logistics, building high-performance teams and leading complex organizations with Fortune 500 customers. Previously, he served as the President of Landstar Global, growing it into a billion dollar company. He was also Chief Operating Officer at Landstar System, Inc., a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions, managing over 1500 employees, now with over 3.5 billion dollars in revenue.

As dexFreight’s President and CEO, Handoush will focus on strengthening and expanding the use of dexFreight’s technology.

“dexFreight is shrinking the gap between shippers, carriers and brokers by continually developing its blockchain solution and tools that reduce costs, improve productivity and increase revenue and profitability,” Handoush said. “I look forward to bringing dexFreight’s vision to supply chain stakeholders and to having a positive impact on transportation and logistics operations in markets around the globe.”

Co-founder and former CEO Rajat Rajbhandari will assume the role of chief information officer and focus on market research and fostering relationships with governmental and academic institutions.

“When we founded dexFreight in early 2018, we understood its enormous potential and knew that we would need leaders with a deep background in scaling and running multi-billion dollar companies,” Rajbhandari said. “As our technology continues to mature, the timing is perfect for someone like Jim Handoush to step in and take the helm. His keen interest in innovation and deep experience will drive our growth in the coming years.”
