Logistics Startup creation
Storage as an industry is not consumer friendly, with hiring storage, buying boxes and hiring a van to move boxes – why could you not order that service, on demand, from your phone?
This highly complex “Uber for storage” concept required large backend infrastructure integration with a third party solution provider and robust technology solution to meet the live demands of the system. We went through nearly 1 month of scoping for this first to market innovative development.
- Lofty was first to market in Europe with an app for on demand self storage.
- Launched MVP product, gained some traction, raised Silicon Valley investment and then merged with a larger removals tech business to provide a much wider offering (including to the French government).
