Founder Story

Brothers Andrew and Michael Leto grew up in the freight industry spending summers helping their father Vito run an air freight business. Little by little the brothers soaked up the knowledge that would later help them to create one of the biggest freight brokerages in the country.

As the two became adults, Michael took over more responsibilities in the family business while Andrew enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Upon his return home, Andrew recognized an opportunity to monetize on technology and set out to build GlobalTranz – a software-driven third-party logistics company created to help shippers better manage their freight.

While the first inning of GlobalTranz was operated out of a single bedroom apartment and funded by Andrew’s unemployment check, success came quickly. It wasn’t long before they moved into a larger facility, bringing on hundreds of new employees each year. The company rose to national recognition over the next several years, allowing the Letos to successfully exit in 2016 with current revenues in excess of $1B. During this time, the Leto brothers also started building a second company –10-4 systems – that specialized in freight tracking which they sold in 2018.

Following the sale of their two companies, Andrew discovered another opportunity for technology to change the freight game. He set out to create the first private marketplace connecting shippers to direct carrier rates, reducing operational costs and helping to improve service on everything from quote to delivery. With Michael brought in as the CEO, Emerge was born.
