About us

When it comes to supply chains, we believe in power to the people.

By providing true visibility across the supply chain, we empower businesses large and small.

We’re opening up a supply chain that is plagued by data dark spots, slowed by miscommunication, and where power is only in the hands of a competitive few.

Drawing from our background in some of the world’s most successful tech companies, our aim is to create positive change for teams across the supply chain, improving the processes, and giving the power back to the people that move goods across the globe.

The supply chain is broken

For years the supply chain has been troubled by inefficiencies and delays caused by a lack of communication across teams. For businesses, this has made the process of moving goods across the globe painful and slow. But with Beacon, things are changing.

Improved real-time visibility can reduce delay-related expenses by up to 60%

Almost 1/3 of manufacturing, wholesale and retail companies reported global supply chain disruption in 2022

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, 91% of consumers now consider the supply chain when making an online purchase
