About Sam Lurye
Sam Lurye is Founder and CEO at Kargo, a logistics technology startup founded in 2019 and headquartered in San Francisco. Lurye founded Kargo to create a connective layer between the physical realities and digital expectations of logistics. Kargo’s machine-vision system captures, verifies, and updates freight data automatically for more accurate, efficient shipping and receiving across supply chains.Prior to Kargo, Lurye worked as a researcher at the Neural Prosthetic Systems Lab at Stanford University, where he contributed to the development of brain-computer interfaces.
Kargo connects the physical and digital worlds of logistics for network effects across supply chains. Founded in 2019, Kargo uses computer vision technology to turn freight into real-time data. Kargo is headquartered in San Francisco and has raised more than $30M in funding for its integrated approach to solving the global challenges of supply chain infrastructure.

Key Takeaways: The Kargo Story
- Sam Lurye is the Founder and CEO of Kargo, a San Francisco tech firm that is on a mission to make factory operations as intuitive and responsive as reading Google Maps.
- In the podcast interview, Joe and Sam discuss some of the problems inherent on the shipping dock and the founding of Kargo.
- As shipments pass through the dock door, Kargo Towers use computer vision to capture data on freight and facility operations.
- The Kargo Towers “see” all sides of the pallet and gather data on freight – pallet labels, condition, and dimensions.
- As freight is loaded and unloaded, Kargo Towers capture the action, translating any label or mark into data you can use on the Kargo Platform and your own ERP, WMS, TMS, and YMS.
- With Kargo’s machine vision system, companies can optimize shipping and receiving at every loading dock for network effects across supply chains.
- Kargo sees and validates multiple freight attributes as forklifts load and unload trucks. Integrations let you connect shipping and receiving end to end.
- As Kargo Towers capture data across facilities, companies gain new insights into supply chain operations and partnerships.
- The Kargo system uses computer vision to bridge the physical world of freight with digital tools.
