Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world’s richest man, is set to provide funding for a UK-based technology start-up within the logistics sector.
Bezos will be investing in Beacon – a London-based specialist in digital freight forwarding and supply chain finance options. This will be a part of the firm’s Series A funding round.
Founded in 2018, Beacon uses artificial intelligence, cloud and other technology to assist with international trade and logistics.
Bezos joins an already prominent investor list, including Eric Schmidt, the former Google CEO, and Travis Kalanick – the founder of Uber.
