Freight Technologies (NASDAQ:FRGT) stock is up by about 200% today after the company announced that Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) had chosen to renew its selection to use the Fr8App in Mexico. The app, powered by Freight’s proprietary artificial intelligence (AI), provides business-to-business shipping services, such as route planning, live tracking and data analysis, within the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

“Amazon’s decision to choose Fr8App during their high-demand season validates our capabilities and positions us as the go-to logistics solution for B2B cross-border and domestic shipping within the USMCA region. We’re excited to work for a prominent market leader like Amazon, and we’re confident in our ability to meet their stringent standards throughout the year as they continue to expand.”

This is the second consecutive year that Amazon Mexico has chosen Freight for its logistics services. To date, the app has assisted in the transportation of more than 670 cargo loads between Amazon’s distribution centers.

Despite the significant gain, FRGT stock is still down by about 60% year-to-date. The company reported preliminary third-quarter revenue growth of 27.2% year-over-year and a margin increase of 26.8%.
