7bridges was founded by Philip Ashton and Matei Beremski in 2016.
Philip had spent time working at a speciality logistics provider, and saw first-hand the challenges that companies faced with their logistics. Money and resources were being wasted consistently by organisations of all sizes and across all industries, as they attempted to wrestle their supply chains into an efficient state. He saw that the problem was systemic - but realised it was possible to create a solution.
Philip brought Matei on board, to help him realise his vision.
Matei, a long-time friend, was at IBM at the time, where he was building machine learning methods into web applications at the early days of the big data boom. Seeing the size of the opportunity and the transformative potential of a data-driven approach to logistics they decided to start 7bridges to bring a new way of thinking to the market.
Together, they built the foundations of 7bridges - building smart technology that would offer automated, scalable and profitable logistics solutions. They were soon joined by Ben Ede; a technical entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in high-growth tech businesses.
The team has since expanded across Europe and the US, and supports customers around the world. They were most recently joined by Simon Lewis (a former customer of 7bridges) as Head of Growth in 2020.
