nextday veho 125m series general catalyst

Personalized next-day package delivery is made possible by Veho, a technology business, which announced a $125 million Series A financing led by General Catalyst at a $1 billion valuation. Investing in strong, lasting change for our entrepreneurs, investors, people, and society is what General Catalyst does as a venture capital firm.

Construct Capital, chaired by Bling Capital, Fontinalis Partners, Rachel Holt, Industry Ventures, and Origin Ventures are among the other investors. Meanwhile, the received funds will be used to enlarge the workforce and increase the number of U.S. markets from 14 to 50 by the end of 2022. As well as to keep improving and deepening customer engagement through technological progress.

Setbacks in logistics and package delivery have plagued the industry in recent years, from “shipaggedon” to late deliveries. As a result, Veho provides an innovation platform that is well suited to manage delivery demands for today’s e-commerce firms and their consumers. Veho’s technology also offers a highly personalized delivery experience and boasts an industry sector record 99.9% average on-time effectiveness for next-day delivery. By offering concrete, substantial value in important strategic business KPIs, the organization has been significantly expanding its clientele.

Veho’s real-time rescheduling, address changes, and customized delivery instructions capabilities provide recipients of packages with more knowledge and control. They can also find out what time of day they will get their packages, when the driver is on the way, and more. More than 7 out of 10 receivers choose to communicate with Veho regarding their shipment arrival. Also, Veho’s system seamlessly links requirements for package delivery with certified driver partners, guaranteeing that every package is delivered on time and accurately. It is supported by a comprehensive and dynamically crowdsourced driver marketplace.

Itamar Zur, CEO and co-founder of Veho guarantees to give e-commerce businesses a quick, tech-forward, and customer-centric delivery option. They steer clear of many common issues associated with logistics and shipping thanks to cutting-edge proprietary technology, a corporate culture that prioritizes the client experience, and our collaboration with skilled and experienced crowdsourcing drivers.

Veho now serves brand partners and customers in 14 US locations, but by the end of 2022, we hope to be present in every major market, including expanding our doorstep returns service. Veho is bringing much-needed innovation to a market that has for years struggled to keep up with the dramatically increased demand while focusing on a superior customer experience, according to Kyle Doherty, Managing Director at General Catalyst.
