Learn How it All Started

Established in 2001, Banyan Technology is a leading transportation logistics SaaS solutions company that provides API carrier connections to shippers, brokers, forwarders, and 3PLs in the less-than-truckload (LTL) industry. Co-founded by Lance Healy and Jim Walborn, it was the first company to introduce API carrier connectivity to the industry, revolutionizing the way clients connect with their carrier networks and conduct business.

Banyan has experienced significant growth over the past several years, being named to Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies multiple times. We have established a strategy for powerful and positive growth that impacts our clients and developed a “client centric” approach to business by putting the right systems and people in place.

Fueled by those powerful resources, we are well positioned to remain at the forefront of the LTL industry by continuing to develop innovative tools and pushing the limits on technology for maximizing visibility, transparency, and freight spend management.

Today, Banyan serves more than 2,000 clients and end customers with more than 30,000 users, processing more than 2 million freight transactions per year through our exclusive data connectivity platform, LIVE Connect™.
