Austin-based logistics startup Overhaul lands $35M Series B funding to transform the $19 billion global supply-chain market
Overhaul, an Austin, Texas-based logistics tech startup, has raised $35 million Series B funding led by Macquarie Capital, with participation from Edison Partners and Avanta Ventures (a venture arm of CSAA Insurance Group). Overhaul will use the fresh capital infusion to accelerate its roadmap in continuing to optimize its current category-creating products.
Overhaul allows shippers to connect disparate sources of data into a fully transparent platform designed for the logistics industry. Overhaul then transform the data into critical insights that can instantly trigger corrective actions, impacting everything from temperature control to handling requirements or package-level tracking, ensuring cargo arrives at its destination safely, undamaged, and on time.
Founded in 2016 by Barry Conlon and Robert Clarke, Overhaul is the industry’s first and only holistic, end-to-end solution that optimizes supply-chain visibility, integrity, and security for global enterprises. Its software-based approach offers high configurability and efficient time-to-value to supply-chain organizations without the heavy tech debt found with hardware-based providers. Before founding Overhaul, Barry Conlon was one of the original founders and CEO of FreightWatch International (FWI) the company that single-handily defined and led the emerging supply chain security industry.
Since its inception five years ago, Overhaul has grown to be a trusted provider of supply-chain technology for Fortune 100 companies that move freight globally for various industries, including pharmaceutical and healthcare, technology, logistics, and food and beverage, having covered billions of dollars in cargo in the last few years. In 2020, the company announced a $17.5 million Series A growth equity investment, led by Edison Partners, which laid the groundwork to triple its success from the previous year, despite the pandemic. Combined with earlier rounds, the funding led by Macquarie Capital Principal Finance brings Overhaul’s total funding to $55 million.
“Partnering with Macquarie Capital — a world-leading principal investor and advisor — solidifies our position as a leader in supply chain technology solutions,” said Barry Conlon, CEO and founder of Overhaul. “Macquarie will enable us to significantly grow our global footprint with an innovative partner who shares our vision for supply-chain digital transformation, which is precisely why we chose them as our investment partner.”
Focused on innovating a $19 billion global supply-chain market, Overhaul plans to optimize the supply-chain industry with transformative software solutions that will provide visibility and security in a post-pandemic era.
The event of last year has brought many insights to the supply chain, most importantly, showcasing a need for organizations to establish and maintain effective and proactive risk-management solutions as part of their business resiliency and agility toolkit. Most recently, Overhaul announced its newest offering, “TruckShield™”, a market-leading, risk-management technology solution for North American motor carriers that uses existing fleet hardware to identify dangerous or illegal driving practices in real-time, while implementing corrective actions to avoid costly situations.
“Overhaul’s ability to create full visibility, security, and connectivity in the supply-chain market is truly differentiated and positions itself to digitize what has historically been a physically documented space,” said Jared Doskow, Managing Director at Macquarie Capital Principal Finance, who has joined Overhaul’s board as part of the investment. “We’re proud to work with Barry and his team and believe Macquarie can help accelerate Overhaul’s growth by leveraging our global experience and relationships in supply-chain technology and related areas.”
