NEW YORK, May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Firmament Group (“Firmament”), a leading provider of tailored debt and equity capital solutions to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), announced today the formation and launch of Envase Technologies (“Envase” or the “Company”), a provider of cloud-based transportation management systems and mobile applications for intermodal transportation providers, including drayage carriers, third-party logistics companies, intermodal marketing companies, and global freight forwarders. Concurrent with the formation of Envase, Firmament completed an investment in Profit Tools, LLC (“Profit Tools”), complementing its existing investments in Compcare Services, LLC (“Compcare”) and GTG Technology Group, LLC (“GTG”).

Envase will be led by industry veteran Larry Cuddy, who has 25+ years of relevant experience in intermodal transportation and technology.

The Firmament team has a demonstrated expertise investing in transportation and logistics software. Their financial backing will allow us to accelerate the amazing progress the team has already made in changing the intermodal landscape, while continuing to provide best-in-class service to our 500+ intermodal customers spanning ports and terminals across nearly all 50 states in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.”
