History & curiosities

A fungi story

Fungi have the peculiarity of being important elements within nature, although they are not known by many. They are found mainly in places with abundant organic material, support environmental conditions of all kinds and easily establish relationships with other living organisms such as plants and animals. They also have the peculiarity of being able to grow in groups, split when they reach a certain size and they are able to operate autonomously without depending on the others, but with which they cooperate to achieve common objectives.
We think that our DNA as a company is very well reflected in this definition and at the same time we strongly believe that logistics of e-commerce should work in a similar way. Nektria was founded in 2012 and today our platform manages the e-commerce logistics for some of the most important online grocery retailers in Spain.

The ‘last mile problem’

Nektria wanted to go a little further, and apply one of its most important values (Searching for the common good) to find solutions to improve mobility within cities, whether for people or goods. Specifically, we detected an important unsolved pain point within logistics: the so called ‘last mile problem’ was far from solved.
We decided a new paradigm was needed where, for the first time the problem would be approached both from the demand-side (delivery time slot selection with real-time variable pricing) as well as from the supply-side (smart capacity and route management) at the same time.
The achieved efficiencies are unprecedented.
