Zootly, LLC, a NYC-based technology platform for the moving and logistics industry, closed a USD$2.5m financing round.
The backers were not disclosed.
Launched in 2015 by George Colwell, Chief Executive Officer, Zootly deploys vehicles and staff on short notice via the Zootly app. Residential or commercial customers can then track movers and trucks from their phones to get instant updates. Businesses benefit from the on-demand services, which allow them to complete business moves or deliver their products or equipment efficiently without owning trucks and employing delivery crews.
The company works by aggregating underutilized moving vehicles and moving teams through its licensed, insured, experienced and customer service-oriented partners via the app, available on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
Zootly, which now moves within a 100-mile radius of Manhattan, plans to use the funds to expand to other cities in 2016.
