The Southeast Asian market has always been a hot spot for cross-border service providers as well as brands.
Southeast Asian cross-border logistics and warehousing service provider Shenzhen Yuanchao Logistics Technology, or Yuancang Warehouse (Chinese: 元仓海外仓), recently announced the completion of a Series Pre-A round of financing led by Matrix Partners, with Shanyu Capital acting as the exclusive financial advisor. The existing investor K2VC also joined this round.
The proceeds raised in this round will be used for warehouse logistics construction and full-process system research and development.
Established in 2021 and headquartered in Shenzhen, Yuancang Warehouse mainly focuses on providing Southeast Asian e-commerce enterprises with standardized warehouse arrangement, logistics, customized order execution, supply chain and other related integrated services.
