Staxxon made Jonathan Wichmann’s list of most promising startups in logistics this week. Until recently, Jonathan was the head of social media for Maersk Line.
Jonathan offered this preface to his list:
“…The logistics business is not easy on the startups. It’s regulated. It’s hardware-driven (ships, rail, trucks, air). And there’s a reluctancy among the big players to change their business models.
In short: 1) the whole logistics business is still living in the past, both technology- and mindset-wise; 2) it’s a very difficult arena to enter for startups; 3) once a few startups hit the nail on its head it’s likely to cause a massive disruption in this space…”
