Locus is a high-engineering R&D startup in the field of logistics, founded by a IIT & BITS alumnus. Last half decade in the form of e-commerce was around creation of consumer demand, and now we need sophisticated enterprise backend systems to full fill that. Transportation & Logistics is under going a once-in-a-century transformation, where every aspect is getting automated & tracked. Logistics industry today is where Aviation was in 70s, Computing in 80s, Internet in 90s & Mobile in 2000.
We have found ourselves fortunate to be at the right spot at the right time, to make a 10x change, over an incremental difference, and now have the human & financial resources to carry out our vision. Our engineering is led by ex-AWS platform engineers, data science by PhDs from TIFR. Sales is managed by our own angel investor, who has joined the team full time, and account management by ex-Obama's campaign manager for Google.
We are solving hard problems in scheduling & optimising domains, have recently received a fresh round of funding, and have marquee customers like Delhivery, Urban Ladder, Big Basket, Lenskart in the short while that we have been operational. Amit Ranjan, founder of SlideShare.com & Balakrishnan, ex-CFO of Infosys among others are our investors & advisors.
