About us:
Blume Global is a technology company based in Pleasanton, CA.

Blume is a successful, privately owned company with approximately 200 employees located in offices in Pleasanton CA, Wellesley MA, Oak Brook IL, and Hong Kong. Today, we develop and operate cloud-based solutions for stakeholders in the global supply chain; shippers, logistics companies and transportation providers.
Our relaunch as Blume is part of a new growth strategy that entails significant investment in R&D over the coming 2-3 years as we build upon our industry-leading digital platform with machine learning, AI and big data at its foundation.
