Founded in 2018, startup company - Curri - is revolutionising last mile logistics for the construction industry and industrial supplies.
Co-founded by Matt Lafferty, CEO, and Brian Gonzalez, CTO, the two seek to be the way the world delivers construction and industrial supplies giving time back to their customers to focus on their clients instead of looking for supplies.
Curri offers both platform services and solutions for its customers for last mile logistics. “By offering end-to-end logistics services and a nationwide elastic fleet, we helped our customers move over US$1bn worth of supplies across the United States last year,” said Curri.
Today the company is furthering its commitment to revolutionising the last mile logistics in construction and industrial supplies with the help of its Series B funding round totaling US$42mn.
Working with the likes of Ferguson, Winsupply, Sherwin-Williams, Graybar, Johnstone Supply, and United Rentals, Curri provides a seamless and efficient platform for organisations to manage their industrial supply chain. With its services organisations can quickly and securely deliver complex loads.
“In the last three years, we’ve rapidly grown to meet the overwhelming demand from our customers. We’ve expanded our services to cover all types of delivery options including hot shots, dedicated services, and freight, powered by a national fleet of vehicles ranging from sedans to box trucks and flatbeds,” said Curri.
The company also delivers complete transparency and fast delivery options for the industry, with a presence in every major US city.
Helping customers to save costs and grow their business
By offering same-day delivery solutions, Curri helps its customers to save nearly a third of its operational costs and convert 24% more sales. Harnessing its elastic fleet to manage seasonal fluctuations and unpredictable demand create efficiencies in the current economic climate.
“Building more responsive supply chains will require a shift to flexible fulfillment networks. Curri has built the leading elastic network for last-mile industrial deliveries, powered by enterprise-grade technology,” said Mike Droesch, General Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners.
What’s next for Curri?
With its US$42mn investment, Curri will continue to deliver operational efficiencies to its customers and further drive its vision of becoming the go-to platform for construction and industrial supply chain management.
Top priorities include:
- Accelerating product innovation
- Improve operational efficiency
- Expand sales and marketing efforts
“The last few years have been an incredible journey for our team. Every day we continue to be awe-inspired by our customers and are grateful for their help shaping the platform. We can’t wait to take the next step forward and continue building a better industrial supply chain,” concluded Curri.
