On June 21, surpath, a cross-border supply chain technology company, announced that it had completed tens of millions of yuan of pre-a+ round financing. This round of financing is invested exclusively by northern lights venture capital, and index capital continues to act as the exclusive financial adviser. The financing will be used to optimize the construction of technology upgrading and marketing. Previously, surpath announced in October 2021 that it had successively completed Angel round financing and pre-A round financing. Its shareholders included China Merchants venture capital, Jingwei venture capital, juvenile capital and other institutions. After a few months, surpath has been approved by top institutions again, and the industrial value of surpath is accelerating to form a consensus. Zhangpeng, partner of northern lights venture capital, said that the idea of northern lights' investment in logistics is to capture the new logistics opportunities brought by new business flows. Export cross-border logistics is still in the early stage of the industry, and there will be an opportunity to go to sea. This is an opportunity that domestic logistics or import logistics did not have in the past. We think surpath is such a target. It uses AI technology to integrate the whole logistics chain. At the same time, it is equipped with scarce resources in the United States, which greatly improves the logistics efficiency. Surpath believes that 2021 is a turning point for cross-border industries, and the whole industry has entered the era of "service dividend" from the era of "flow dividend". The "Amazon event" in 2021 symbolizes that the flow bonus of cross-border e-commerce has fully subsided, the cost of a large number of cross-border sellers has risen sharply, and the profit structure has been completely changed. In the next five years, the supply chain will become a key efficiency improvement point for cross-border industries.
