Robert Khachatryan is the founder and CEO Freight Right Global Logistics. Robert's first brush with business was selling newspapers in the streets of Yerevan at the age of 9. The son of a microbiologist turned businessman Robert always had a unique appreciation for both commerce and science.
A university dropout, Robert Khachatryan is currently a member of the board of advisors of The Randall R. Kendrick Global Supply Chain Institute at the University of Southern California (USC).
Robert started Freight Right in 2007 out of his 2-bedroom Los Angeles apartment. He was so convinced that there was a better way of freight forwarding that he made the leap and started the company in the 2007-08 economic crisis, armed with nothing more than a borrowed credit card, a young immigrant’s drive, and an ambitious goal of building a world-class logistics company. Over the following 16 years, Freight Right built its reputation on stellar execution first, then transformed itself through technology. Aside from continuous development of its own proprietary tech, Freight Right is an authority on emerging supply chain technology and the go-to launch partner for some of the biggest innovators of the logistics industry.
Robert has been a contributor to the Journal of Commerce, Bloomberg, FreightWaves, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes and several other prominent publications on the topics of logistics and supply chain technology. Robert has been a featured speaker at Transpacific Maritime Conference (TPM), Freightos FreighTech, USC Supply Chain Summit, and more.
