Byrd, the e-commerce startup, announced new funding that will be used to expand its footprint to meet demand and help merchants fill online orders.
The e-commerce startup builds software that manages warehouses and logistics, but also offers a service to merchants to pick and deliver their orders. Byrd was able to obtain $19 million USD in Series B funding that it will use to expand into northern and southern Europe.
Byrd was started in 2016 in Vienna, Austria and since then it has expanded into the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. Currently, the company has about 15 fulfillment centers and 200 customers.
“You could say we are an alternative to Amazon, but also quite different. Our sellers are very brand-focused and want to provide a total experience total to customers,” said Petra Dobrocka, the Byrd co-founder and CCO.
