This increased reliability has led to higher customer satisfaction rates and the company’s overall success in the logistics sector.

Recently, the firm secured significant financial backing in the form of $10 million in Series B funding. With major contributors, including SJF Ventures, Grand Ventures, and Supply Chain Ventures, the firm is now positioned for potential growth and improved scalability.
