Bryn Heimbeck

President and Co-Founder - Seattle

Bryn Heimbeck has been a pioneer in the Global Logistics and Supply Chain Industry for twenty-five years, championing the Cloud, Digitization, and the Internet as the most powerful new technologies available to this industry.

Heimbeck partnered with co-founder Kevin Clark in 1997 leveraging the Internet to create a global transportation management system on a single, globally accessible, multi-tenant platform which is connected to ocean and air carriers as well as Customs agencies around the world.

Trade Tech is the result of Heimbeck’s initial career in the shipping and logistics business. This created his first hands-on experience with technology to improve the management of large volume cargo flows. His experience taught him that logistics customers need consistency and predictability in their supply chains, and that digitization and automation are powerful tools for a Forwarder to deliver on the customer’s expectations. Heimbeck has grown Trade Tech’s global presence to include nine offices around the world.

Mr. Heimbeck began his career at OOCL in Chicago and then held several management positions with OOCL in Hong Kong. Heimbeck returned to his home in Seattle and started an NVOCC/Freight Forwarder focused on moving dry and refrigerated food products from southern states to markets in Asia.

He later held a leadership role with Fritz Companies as the Director of Trans-Pacific East Bound NVOCC where he successfully oversaw pricing technology development to support his sales growth responsibilities.
