Bigblue has raised a $15 million Series A funding round. The company operates an order fulfillment platform for direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands. D2C can outsource all things related to logistics to Bigblue so that they can focus on product and marketing.
Runa Capital led the round, with LPV acting as the “secondary lead investor.” Existing investor Samaipata participated once again.
The startup currently operates in three countries; France, Spain and the U.K. It has also signed partnerships with five different warehouses representing over 60,000 square meters of storage space. Bigblue customers can ship their products directly to these warehouses so that they are stored and managed by Bigblue. Every time a customer orders from a Bigblue client, the product is shipped to the end customer using Bigblue’s carrier network. The startup has integrations with more than 20 different carriers and can ship all across Europe, and globally.
Bigblue lets customers customize packaging and add flyers in the package to personalize the experience for end customers. Customers can also file a return request on a branded return portal, it also supports store credit as well as refunds.
“With this new round we will support scaling service offerings for Bigblue’s growing base of online merchants, fuel hiring efforts, and continue to position the company as the leader in the D2C fulfillment space,” said Tim Dumain, Co-Founder and CEO, Bigblue.
Bigblue has managed to attract 300 customers, such as From Future, Unbottled and We Are Jolies. The company plans to ship 4 million parcels this year. Over the next 12 months, the startup plans to hire another 100 employees and expand across Western Europe.
