BR8 secures funding from Royalis Investments

Very, very happy and proud to announce that BR8 is partnering up with investor Royalis Investments.

Royalis chooses to invest in BR8 because of our disruptive approach to last mile distribution for large and heavy goods. A segment in logistics that will grow rapidly, as e-commerce penetration for product groups like furniture is still relatively low. BR8 combines a solid business plan with a unique recruitment strategy: 50% of our workforce is hired out of long term unemployment. To do this, BR8 has built an extensive network with local councils, to find these candidates that are ignored by other employers.

In order to make BR8 the new standard in last mile logistics, we strongly believe we need to develop proprietary logistics software. Royalis will support BR8 with the required funding and strategic advice to do this, and to generally help accelerate BR8’s growth.

Of course, an announcement like this can’t go without the typical signing and champagne pictures. So, without further ado:

Signing…

Signing…

…and champagne!

…and champagne!

On behalf of all BR8’rs we’d like to thank Royalis for their trust and support in BR8’s future!
