Bridge Bank today announced its Capital Finance Group has closed on a $10 million asset-based loan facility for Zuum Transportation Inc., a California-based logistics technology provider for manufacturers, freight brokers and carriers.
“It’s rewarding to work with a company like Zuum that is making a difference for such a great stable of internationally recognized clients,” said Justin Vogel, senior vice president in Bridge Bank’s Capital Finance Group. “Bridge Bank appreciates the innovation Zuum brings to the logistics industry.”
Founded in 2016, Zuum’s clients include Tyson, Sherwin Williams and Staples.

“We’re all about smooth processes and enhanced efficiencies, the same qualities Bridge Bank brings to clients,” said Matt Tabatabai, co-founder and chief operating officer of Zuum. “Our goal is to defragment the logistics industry through collaboration and partnerships — including with our lender.”
