The Chilean company, which specializes in the delivery of business for the last and penultimate mile, has quintupled its business in the past six months and internationalized its platform to Mexico amid the health crisis to initiate a new round of investments to consolidate its growth.

The pandemic season and the gradual implementation of the “new normal” have intensified the delivery industry, and there is no doubt that it will continue to grow exponentially, largely due to the life changes we face. .
One of the companies that drew the most attention during this period – thanks to its premium service – was Rayo, a Chilean startup dedicated to corporate logistics, particularly the delivery of the last and penultimate mile. Rayo, already present in Mexico, ensures the provision of a bespoke service that adapts to customer needs. This is something unusual (especially in times of the coronavirus) when most companies had to act on the spur of the moment, which can create complications with the logistics and quality of your deliveries.
However, when we talk about making a difference, the company excels at integrating cutting edge technology in all areas, understanding the unique needs of each customer, and being free and easy to integrate with existing systems. In the absence of web portals, Rayo has tools that enable enterprise customers to create their own e-commerce at no additional cost, removing the barriers of today’s world. The strategy behind this novel offering is for Rayo to take delivery of the supplies, increasing its stake, if supply grows faster than ever.

During this pandemic, Rayo has remained solid, specializing in providing services to large Chilean and Mexican businesses in the retail, health, telecommunications, business services and food sectors, especially today when shipments are made across the industry. They have become indispensable and necessary for most companies.
In the Covid-19 era, Rayo closed Happy Accounts, five times as much in sales as in the same period last year. However, to further expand their presence in Mexico, the country where they settled in the second half of 2019, they are looking for a new round of investments of $ 2.5 million.
“Today we are raising a new round of capital that will allow us to expand our operations and modalities as we have shown the importance of having quality delivery and being present in everyone’s daily life,” said Juan Andrés Cabrera, co-founder of Rayo.
