Shotput wants to be the AWS for logistics
TechCrunch - 08/06/2015
“We’re in a unique, extremely unsexy industry,” explained James Steinberg, who founded Shotput with fellow Northeastern University graduate Praful Mathur around 18 months ago. Part of Y Combinator’s summer 2015 class, Shotput provides an end-to-end product delivery and fulfillment suite to customers. Started as a response to the frustration the cofounders experienced with warehousing inefficiencies, the company aims to provide lightweight and scalable logistics solutions to customers.
“[Entrepreneurs] will put all their money into manufacturing and hardware, but put no thought into what happens after that,” said Steinberg.
