Polish full-service logistics and fulfillment operation startup Omnipack has raised €7.5 million funding. The final venture debt round of €2 million was led by Flashpoint. The seed investment saw the participation of early-stage VC fund SMOK Ventures, which has jointly invested in nearly 200 startups, including unicorns such as Uber, Unity, Zappos, Niantic, and Stripe and angel investors.
The fresh capital will enable it to scale quickly enough to meet the needs of an ever-expanding e-commerce market.
The funding will also be utlilised to enable e-commerce businesses to focus on their core competencies instead of logistics and overcome the physical limits of their business growth. Founded in 2017 by Tomek Kasperski, Rafał Szcześniewski and Karol Milewski in Warsaw, the startup is on a mission to deliver logistics solutions to match the expectations of modern e-commerce.
Talking about how the startup is letting e-commerce businesses overcome physical limits of business growth, Tomek Kasperski, founder and CEO, Omnipack said: “We offer scalable and reliable operations and technology. Hence, e-commerce players do not need to worry about warehouse space, workforce or capacity planning. We own the whole fulfillment process end-to-end and operate in the full-stack model.”
“It is the only way to provide Amazon-grade experience for our merchants and carry out our mission to let them grow frictionless. Frictionless growth coupled with our location in central Europe, and great shipping rates and lead times makes it a strong value proposition for e-commerce players. On top of that, all countries can be served from just one location in western Poland which significantly cuts operational costs and working capital,” he added.
The platform has become an operations partner for Shipbob in January 2022 and also cooperates with Amazon roll-up Factory14 to scale brands with products.
