CEO and Co-Founder Jeremy Bodenhamer recently wrote a thought leadership piece about shipping challenges featured in Venture Beat: This unlikely company could crush Amazon … if it gets one thing right

“Amazon is actually losing billions on shipping each year. And as its market share grows, this number is growing —not shrinking as originally expected.
