Navegate has opened offices in Houston, Texas and Kansas City, Missouri.

Navegate provides digital solutions for supply chain management. The company now operates out of six locations: Minneapolis, Chicago, Kansas City, Houston, Los Angeles, and Shanghai.

Key account manager James Blodgett, who has more than 35 years of experience in the project cargo sector, will lead the Houston office. “As a hub for cargo and oversized shipments, I am excited to leverage our new location to strengthen customer relationships as well as grow Navegate’s base for project cargo,” he said.

Operations manager Adam Daugherty is managing the new Kansas City office, where he will focus on supporting client’s multimodal needs.

In addition to expanding its geographic presence, Navegate has also updated its technology platform with the launch of the Navegate Emerald software. It comprises four new applications, allowing customers to build their own solutions depending on their needs in shipment quoting, booking, tracking, order management and vendor collaboration, said Navegate.
