New technologies will disrupt every industry. Shipping is no exception.
You’ll find an abundance of snappy start-up names in this report from CB Insights, which provides an overview of companies entering the shipping and package delivery ecosystem. The reason for the abundance is clear – supply chain and logistics raised a record $1.7 billion in funding in 2020.
