Happy Birthday - wir feiern 5 Jahre parcelLab

5 years ago, our founders Anton Eder, Tobias Buxhoidt and Julian Krenge launched the idea of parcelLab. What has happened since then and how has the company developed over the past few years from a start-up to the first port of call in terms of operations experience after the purchase?

How it all began - a look back

Tobias Buxhoidt and Julian Krenge got to know each other through a matchmaking of the EU funding programme "SpeedUp Europe". Anton Eder was then acquired through a classic job advertisement on Gründerszene and thus joined as the third founder.

Through their experience in the field of logistics, the three of them realised in 2014 that the time had come for a change in traditional structures.

The idea for parcelLab came from conversations with retailers who complained about the lack of transparency and the end of the customer experience in shipping.

How it all began - the three founders.
