Only that they contacted me about hauling some grain. When asked about a broker license, they changed the subject. Can't seem to find out much about them other than they have a home office in Boston. Still looking for more information.

Unless they have the same name I have worked with them. They're predominantly involved in grain sales between producers and end users across the nation. I've had no problems with them.

They contacted me to and I just happen to work with the elevator they were saying they had Grain to haul. So I called the elevators And they said indigo contacted them claiming to have trucks available and wanted to know if they had anything that needed hauled. The elevator never told them they did or didn?t. Yet indigo was making cold calls claiming they had the grain Shady company

Thanks for the replies all . I did go ahead and do some work for them basically in my back door. Was promised so many loads and only got half. When I looked their load board they had the work I was doing posted for 2 cents more than I was working for. When called they had some excuse and I quit listening. But when I went too send my bills into them I had too claim the loads that were posted at the higher price than my contract. Will see if they can me paid in ten days like they say and what the pay will b.

Same cold call here. Multiple times. I did get a broker carrier agreement form in my email never bothered with it.
Our local ag station ran a bit about them around the first of the year. Long and short of it was that Indigo believes there is an abundance of assets setting still and they want to utilize them to get grain to market. AKA pay the farmer to haul grain on their farm tags. At least that was the impression I received from a 3 minute piece.

Hi all,

Indigo Ag has been around for 4 years and applies innovative technologies across the ag supply chain, including running Indigo Marketplace: a grain marketplace connecting growers and buyers that has billions of bushels of inventory. In January, we officially unveiled our logistics arm called Indigo Transport, which has been in operation since last August and focuses on hoppers and more recently on rail.

A quick snapshot of how it works: Buyers purchase grain from Indigo Marketpalce and growers selling the grain are given the option to use Indigo Transport to make the grain delivery. The loads are then booked by Indigo Transport's carrier network who follow some simple steps and get paid within 10 days.

Indigo Transport is all about advocating for bringing more efficiency to transportation across growers, shippers, and carriers. We are new in the space, but we keep our promises to all of these stakeholders. If something doesn't work, we always respond and evolve. Our carriers always get paid what is agreed on and in a transparent manner.

For any questions, contact us at (901) 701-1130 and we'd be happy to answer them for you.

-Indigo Transport team

Indigo Ag is a great company to work with. I've been working with them on hauling grain. They have great rates and are easy to work with. Definitely would do business with them again.

I have done some work for them over last month or so, and so far It’s been everything we’ve agreed on.

If you are not being paid by them go on their twitter page and ask where your money is and tag their CEO in it. I had a call the next day and money in 2. Apparently they read it because they asked me to take it down and I said I will when I see the money

Indigo transport is sort of exactly what they said in their post with a bit of a caviot they arent mentioning. They are a disrupter company in the agriculture sector. There end goal is to get rid of the brokers and be the end and middle man and eventually control the entire chain. Currently they are buying up grainaries and farms, this year they have purchased over 20K acres alone, and are partnered with some of the major granaries around. They are a spin out of Agricultural Pesticides and that's how they got started.

We wont deal with them, their goal is to take over agrigulture from soup to nuts and cut out everyone or as they put it streamline the process to make it more efficient by making everyone go through them like Amazon has done with goods. They are striving to be the Amazon of agriculture.

If you deal with them make sure you have an A+ rated Best Insurance Company otherwise their contractor wont work with you. That should tell you all you need to know. When a broker platform is more worried about the financial standing of your insurance company than if you have insurance you can bet they are equally as uninterested in making sure you are paid a fair wage or givien productive loads.

Want to understand what Indigo Transport really is about read this article: https://www.freightwaves.com/news/technology/indigo-agriculture-launches-indigo-transport-in-ag-supply-chain then think about what it says in it.

Indigo Transport is out of Indigo Agriculture who used to be Symbiota. Their main game is genetic modification of plants, and realized they could disrupt transportation in the ag sector because lets be honest a lot of it is backwards and 90% is off line where everyone still prints bills of laden and you have to physically send them in to get paid. They are trying to partner with farmers and mills to basically give them free technology in exchange for only using their transportation application. Good secondary buisness line, but we as farmers have found they were really mostly interested in buying us out of our farms than in helping us "Grow our buisnesses".

Perhaps carriers will have a different perspective. Just remember Indigo in transportation would be like is Monsanto or Bayer or BASF decided to get into the trucking buisness. If they have success the others will follow.
