Whitebox raises $5M for its e-commerce logistics platform

Whitebox, a startup that CEO Marcus Startzel said is working to “power the direct-to-consumer economy,” has raised $5 million in Series A funding.
The company works with both startups and more established brands, giving them the tools they need to run direct-to-consumer e-commerce businesses. Customers include McCormick, Starbucks, KitchenAid, Bare Bones and Super Coffee-maker Kitu.
As Startzel put it, “All our clients need to do is send us their product, and then we take care of everything.” That includes listing the products on different online marketplaces, promoting those listings with ads and actually sending the products to customers once they’ve been purchased.
According to Startzel, while there are other companies building tools around Amazon listings and ads, and still others focused on logistics, Whitebox is unique because “we’re selling stuff and we’re moving stuff.” He argued the company can tap into sales opportunities that its competitors can’t, thanks to a “technology platform that connects to both sides” and allows Whitebox to find the best way to sell a brand’s products, for example in multi-packs and variety packs.
