French startup Convargo is a marketplace for shippers and carriers so that you can find a truck and send goods across France more efficiently.
The startup just raised a $19 million Series A round led by Inventure Partners and Earlybird.
Tony Fadell, Patrick Sayer and Oskar Hartmann, Roger Crook, Clément Benoit and Romain Afflelou are also participating in today’s round.
As always, marketplace startups work particularly well for fragmented industries.
And this one is perfect as many carriers own less than 10 trucks, pricing varies greatly and there has been little innovation for the past decades.
“Today, we have more than 2,000 partners, representing more than 120,000 trucks,” co-founder and CEO Maxime Legardez told me.
