Cristian Hatis 2 Min Read

Byrd has raised €5 million to scale its operation internationally. The Series A round was led by Rider Global, a venture fund with a strong focus on logistics, e-commerce and mobility.

Since its start in 2016, Byrd has collected a total of more than €9 million from business angels and VCs, including Speedinvest, Reflex Capital, Hermann Hauser, and KK Incube, as well as public funding. 

Byrd runs a fulfillment network without touching a single parcel or owning a single warehouse.

The startup connects online merchants to an international warehouse network, enabling retailers to offer advanced shipping options on an international scale without needing to build their own logistics network.

The company’s fulfillment platform integrates with leading e-commerce systems such as Shopify and qualified logistics partners in multiple countries, bringing retailers closer to their customers. 

Beyond its core markets in Germany and Austria where the company started, it has fulfillment locations in the UK, and will launch new locations in Netherlands and France in the coming weeks.

Currently, the company is able to ship 10.000 orders per day from more than 10 different warehouses, with storage capacities of more than 500.000 square meters. 

Byrd is planning to add another three European countries to its fulfillment network in 2020, amounting to eight active markets by the end of the year.
