- Voyager Portal announced recently that it raised $8.4 million in Series A investment. These are the details.
Voyager Portal — a software platform enabling companies to reduce cost, risk, and complexity in their marine supply chain — announced recently that it raised $8.4 million in Series A investment led by Phaze Ventures. And other new investors include ScOp Venture Capital, Waybury Capital, and Flexport. All the existing investors followed in on this round.
The new funding round comes on the back of unprecedented growth since the company raised $1.5 million in seed money two years ago. And since then, revenue has increased 13x from Q3 2020 to Q3 2021 and was up 40% from Q2 2021.
Voyager also surpassed the $1 billion mark for freight managed on the platform. And Voyager’s customers include manufacturers, traders, and shippers in the renewable energy, commodity trading, mining, and petrochemicals industries.
Voyager’s low-code architecture — which allows customers to quickly and easily configure the platform to match their business processes — is a unique differentiator in a market dominated by rigid legacy systems. This platform was also built from the ground up to be a multi-party system, allowing companies to seamlessly collaborate in real-time over a single shipment.
“Voyager Portal was created to significantly reduce cost, risk, and complexity when transporting bulk materials around the world. The last two years have demonstrated just how critical shipping bulk commodities is to global markets – freight rates have increased and port congestion is at an all-time high – accelerating the demand for Voyager’s solution.”
“With our Series A funding, we’ll be able to expedite our product roadmap to support an international client base whilst expanding our engineering, development, marketing and sales teams internationally.”
— Matthew Costello, CEO and co-founder of Voyager
“Voyager’s implementation has been hugely impressive. The low-code functionality allows almost real-time modifications to the developing workflows and reporting capabilities with no lengthy development and minimal testing prior to implementation. By digitizing data capture across all our physical movements, we are able to analyze our business much better, enabling faster and smarter decisions driven by data. This, in turn, will provide significant, quantifiable cost reductions for our business.”
— Adam Panni, operations manager at OMV, a multinational energy company based in Austria
“Voyager is changing the way companies are thinking of their global shipping operations. Global supply chains are becoming increasingly complex and strained, and there is an incredible treasure trove of data that organizations are underutilizing in their decision-making process. We believe what Voyager has created for their customers across the globe will revolutionize this space forever.”
— Abdullah Al-Shaksy, co-founder and CEO, Phaze Ventures
“Marine shipping is a complex process. It involves coordination between many parties. Voyager allows you to customize workflows, consolidate critical information and track your shipments throughout the world. Voyager dramatically increases productivity while reducing risk.”
