CEMEX Ventures invests in LINKX
Published by Lucy Stewardson,
CEMEX Ventures has announced its investment in LINKX, a company that offers specialised software to optimise goods delivery. The company’s software solution allows control of deliveries and vehicles in real time, allowing for data-based decision making and facilitating communication and information among all involved parties: shipper, carrier, and receiver. Within the increasingly busy technological world of logistics, LINKX stands out for its user-friendly interface, robustness, convenient integration, and customer-centric focus.
With LINKX, shippers or freight generators can plan deliveries in a simple way, allowing them to assign operations to their own carriers or third parties. In addition, to enable the visibility of shipment status and the location of vehicles in real time, LINKX digitalises delivery vouchers, provides administrative advantages, and fosters fluidity in the billing process. Another distinguishing function of this delivery optimisation software is its analytical reports, which offer data-based conclusions about its logistic operation.
Drivers are another segment that will benefit from the platform. LINKX allows drivers to schedule their performed services and functions as a co-pilot that optimises their routes. This tool is able to collect signatures and offer graphic evidence for proof of digital delivery. Through LINKX, customers receive merchandise easily, are informed at all times of the delivery process, and receive the same digital receipt. The platform allows them to access the service, improve trust, and provide feedback to shippers and carriers.
Currently operating in the Mexican and Spanish markets, LINKX explores new sectors beyond construction. It is expected that the efficiency, confidence, and visibility of its results position it close to generating important sales, transforming it into a leading software solution that specialises in delivery optimisation.
Launched in 2017, CEMEX Ventures focuses on helping to solve the main challenges and areas of opportunity for the construction ecosystem through sustainable solutions. CEMEX Ventures has created an open and collaborative platform to lead the construction industry revolution by engaging startups, entrepreneurs, universities, and other relevant stakeholders to address the industry’s toughest challenges and shape tomorrow’s value ecosystem.
“This investment is a clear example of our offer,” said Gonzalo Galindo, CEO of CEMEX Ventures. “LINKX came to us at a very early stage and together we worked on continuous improvements by reinforcing their minimum viable product and offering continuous feedback on our knowledge of industry and technology. After numerous optimisations, we have piloted this solution with several CEMEX clients to achieve a robust solution for the supply chain management challenge.”
