The dairy industry uses data to speed up the delivery of perishable products

Like many other industries, the dairy industry faces global supply chain issues while trying to produce and transport a perishable product.

Despite the short amount of time industry players have to get milk from farm to factory, many still use paper-and-pen and legacy systems. Milk Moovement was founded in 2018 to provide an alternative to the industry, and today the company’s dairy farmers and distribution partners track and route shipments in real time.

The company also recently raised $20 million in a Series A to help accelerate product development and adoption of the technology platform in North America.
