Continuing a year of bumper investments for tech startups in the business of moving goods from A to B in Indonesia, Waresix today announced it has secured $100 million in its newest round of funding.
On top of that, one of Waresix’s new investors is the prestigious SoftBank Ventures Asia, reports Ag Funder News this afternoon. Another of its new backers is Emtek, Indonesia’s $2.5 billion tech and media conglomerate.
Focused on digitizing the shipping industry, Waresix runs a marketplace that connects businesses with trucks and warehouse space—an industry that’s often fragmented and inefficient, reliant on phone-calls and paperwork.
