HOW ZEDBLOX STARTED
The founders of ZedBlox share a common empathy to prevent wastage and ensure safety of goods in transit in order to protect ordinary citizen consumers and increase income for businesses. This wastage was mainly happening due to climatic conditions and pilferage that could translate into billions of dollars in savings of GDP and higher incomes for producers.
The team started the analysis of current solutions available globally and concluded that there were severe limitations with current solutions, especially in the last mile transport. The goal was to provide an extremely simple, easy to use system, yet technology driven, in order to ease adoption and provide maximum benefits.
The team was confident that ROI would be easily covered by ZERO wastage of the solution. The team did extensive research on the people aspects and usage conditions and put in a lot of hard work into designing their first last mile cold chain product, ZedBlox Smart Active Carrier.
