iContainers, a Miami, Fla.-based digital freight forwarder and marketplace for instant quotes and booking, raised $6.7m in funding.
The round was led by Serena Capital with participation from existing investors Kibo Ventures and Vitamina K. In conjunction with the funding, Anne-Valèrie Bach, partner at Serena Capital, joined iContainers’ Board of Directors.
The company, which has raised $9m in total to date, intends to use the funds to accelerate product development, increase global awareness of iContainers services, and expand its global presence in North Europe, Asia and South America.
