What We're Building

We are one of the few London-based startups backed by Y Combinator. We’ve just closed an exciting 2.5 million USD seed round - from Cherubic, AME Cloud and Founders Fund.

We’re creating the platform of the future for global commodity movement.

Currently, when booking a ship, there is an overwhelming amount of information that needs to be pieced together and a multitude of different stakeholders that needs to be kept in a tight communication loop. Our intelligent layer helps commercial employees focus on increasing revenue. We replace the thousands of unnecessary emails, excel files and instant messages between players required for each booking.

We’re a vertical B2B enterprise startup working with family-owned shipowners to some of the largest global players to transform the way they work as a team. Bulk shipping, an entirely different market to container shipping, is the unknown giant of the logistics sector.
