Head of Warehouse Partnerships and Operations - B2B Logistics startup

| Greater LA Area
Build the Next Disruptive Startup in B2B Logistics
ABOUT BCGDV:
BCG Digital Ventures is an ever-growing global team of entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, venture architects, product experts and investors. We invent, build and invest in startups with the world’s most influential companies. The business ventures we create build strategic advantages for some of the most important global companies and help them own the next horizon of innovation.
ABOUT THE VENTURE:
We are getting ready to launch and scale a logistics marketplace startup that could transform the experience around outsourced fulfillment. The vision is a technology platform that connects merchants seeking warehousing and fulfillment with 3PLs and warehouse operators whose capabilities match their needs. For merchants, we enable easy access to a turnkey nationwide fulfillment network of independent warehouses via a single portal that embeds inventory and order management. For 3PLs, we enable one-stop demand acquisition and no-integration customer onboarding via an intuitive, end-to-end, cloud-based warehouse management system. Standardized and simplified terms, operating procedures, and pricing replace long negotiations, complex set up processes, and lengthy contract commitments, enabling both merchants and 3PLs to quickly set up and flexibly scale on the platform. Ultimately, we help merchants deliver goods to their customers faster, and help 3PLs grow their customer base and monetize excess capacity.
 
Financially backed and operationally supported by one of world’s most recognized logistics companies and BCGDV, this startup is well positioned to disrupt the $275B US warehousing industry, infusing cutting edge technology into an industry primed for innovation.
