What do we do?

We're developing software to manage the supply chain for companies that ship from the US. For example, many new Kickstarters and SMB e-commerce companies manufacturer their products in China then freight ship them to the US. From here we manage all the complexity: our freight partners pick up products from the ports; the product is delivered to our warehouse partners who then pick, pack, and ship; finally, UPS or FedEx delivers it to the end customer anywhere in the world.
