Founded in 2008, Rockfarm is a tech-enabled transportation logistics company with a focus on flexible, customer-driven service. Many of Rockfarm’s core integration functions overlap with Redwood’s existing suite of services, adding expanded capabilities for Redwood customers in areas such as transportation management, logistics execution and freight visibility.
Redwood’s North American footprint currently includes cross-border transportation service with Redwood Mexico, and the acquisition of Rockfarm will add direct capabilities in international freight forwarding, trade compliance and customs brokerage. Rockfarm also brings additional data warehouse, business intelligence, data translation and claims management tools and services to the Redwood portfolio.
Rockfarm also brings a deep history of integrating the MercuryGate suite of products and optimizing freight data. Redwood will continue to implement and integrate multiple Transportation Management Systems (TMS) with a proven TMS-agnostic approach, now with dozens of integrators each for MercuryGate and Oracle product suites, along with a variety of other TMS systems and FreightTech apps leveraged across the RedwoodConnect™ open ecosystem.
Rockfarm ownership, key leadership, management teams and team members will continue to operate as Redwood team members, and Rockfarm’s Dubuque, IA, operation center will continue as a Redwood logistics center.
Redwood’s acquisition of Rockfarm is the latest in a series of strategic acquisitions, making Redwood one of the fastest-growing North American logistics companies. Recent acquisitions include Skipjack and Proactive Global Logistics (PGL) in 2021 to form Redwood Parcel, and Eminent Global Logistics, an Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) leader, in 2019, as it continues to build out its modern 4PL portfolio.
