When building out an ecommerce business, fulfilling the orders is often seen as a necessary evil. On-demand commerce has flipped that on its head—"what if you could press a button and it shows up the same day, even the same hour?" The fulfillment promise becomes the customer value prop.
Numbered are the days for businesses that rely entirely on fulfilling pre-scheduled orders with static routes. These are traditional systems where happenings of any given day are pre-decided and logistics is just about executing that. Any change to that plan is seen as an exception.
Customer expectations have changed to getting fulfilled today or now, and logistics tech across industries is catching up to that. This goes beyond ecommerce or retail categories, think field service, mobility, manufacturing, heavy industry, financial services, healthcare, really anything that moves with commercial value. It takes an insane amount of technology to fulfill this promise. We help get there.
Tens of thousands of logistics tech builders around the world have used HyperTrack's location APIs to build logistics apps for their operations teams, store partners and end customers. In August, we crossed a million orders tracked per month, and clocked another 20% jump in September. Thousands of unique logistics apps have been built with HyperTrack and touch the lives of over 100,000 drivers, ops managers, stores and end customers each month. What started as a bunch of engineers wondering what if we made all commercial movement in the world programmable, has now turned into the largest community of logistics tech builders in the world.
Today, I am thrilled to introduce the newest leaders to join our movement.

Francois, Ram and Jaymin join the movement to make logistics tech on-demand. With on-demand, fulfillment is the value proposition and programmable movement is at the heart of that transformation. Logistics tech needs to be built for real-time workflows and decisions, with a continuous feedback loop to optimize and improving productivity. Come join the movement.
