According to him, the investment will be used to support the accelerated growth of the company and the expansion of other markets in Europe.
Founded in 2016, Postis is a Romanian startup that has developed a platform through which national and international retail companies can streamline their entire delivery process. So far, the company has made partnerships with world renewed companies. Reportedly the startup has concluded partnerships with major market players such as Flanco, Ikea, Elefant, Frisbo, as well as courier, logistics or retail companies. The success of the company is also seen by the fact that the company is rapidly growing reaching to more than 1.7 million orders at the moment.
What initially started as an idea of building a B2C platform that gives customers access to multiple transport partners and different single-point delivery options, soon scale up to courier service, proving to be a solution for streamlining delivery operations, especially in peak times such as BlackFriday or the Holidays. At the same time, Postis offers traceability and tracking functions, including return and cash on delivery. Together with the reporting and analytic operations, this startup provides an improved delivery performance and higher customer satisfaction for all companies that use their platform.

Postis is also available as an easy-to-use mobile application that manages the traceability of orders, captures proof of delivery from a single device. This mobile application has been already used by many European companies, such as KLG Europe.
