Federico Vega is founder of CargoX, which operates as an asset-free trucking company, enabling a network of more than 150,000 trucks to move thousands of loads across the Brazilian territory and beyond. Regarded as the Uber for trucks by top international media, CargoX has shown an extremely aggressive revenue growth, achieving over R$300 million in run rate revenue (GMV) in less than 12 months, making it one of the fastest growing Brazilian companies. CargoX is also regarded as the first platform aimed to accommodate the future operation of self-driving trucks and to implement drone technology to track high value freight. Vega is also founder of Sontra Cargo, a web- and mobile-based marketplace with the mission to connect the Brazilian trucking industry. He has a master's degree in international financial markets from the University of Southampton.
