Linker Cloud, a polish startup specializing in proprietary logistics processes management solutions, raised €3.5 million in seed funding to develop a fulfilment network dedicated to eCommerce companies in the European markets.
ffVC Poland and Street-Smart Capital from Finland participated in the funding round.
Previously, funds have come from Kogito Ventures and Market One Capital. With the additional funds from its latest round, the startup aims to create a virtual bridge between logistics and eCommerce operations.
The platform made by Linker Cloud enables shipping and automation of order handling processes.
Logistics and eCommerce benefit
The company’s partners who have joined the fulfilment network have a chance to become part of a bloc-wide business platform that benefits both logistics companies and eCommerce operators.
Daniel Kierdal, the startup’s CEO, said that the eCommerce market is growing rapidly, and cross-border operations are becoming more necessary for growth. Because of that, the startup decided to make a fulfilment network D2C stores and brands can use to launch sales in new countries faster.
The company will no longer have to worry about logistics and operational issues precisely because that is what the company work to solve.
It takes a week to get started if you are an eCommerce operation
Stores using the platform can send their first packages about a week after the cooperation with Linker Cloud starts.
The geographic area of the network covers almost all of Europe, meaning that in many cases, parcels get the customer anywhere in the bloc within an average of 24 hours from the time the order is placed.
A bloc-wide network like this would change how ecommerce and logistics interact, creating an ecosystem where the two industries exist in tandem, with intelligent solutions to keep everything in order.
