A start-up offering automation software to manage delivery has raised $144 million in its first funding round as the COVID-19 pandemic turbocharges the sector.
DispatchTrack helps retailers and other companies to coordinate their delivery operation across channels and drivers. The platform includes self-scheduling tools that take account of apacity, route optimisation, customer communications, tracking links, mobile application, billing and real-time fleet visibility.

Satish Natarajan, CEO of DispatchTrack, said: “We built DispatchTrack to help businesses large and small provide superior delivery experiences, streamline operations and maintain coordination and transparency across all constituents in the last-mile.

“With Spectrum’s support, we will continue our rapid pace of innovation and bring best-in-class solutions to more businesses, industries and geographies.”
