Shape the world’s fastest growing online platform for shipping containers!
BOXHUB is an e-commerce and logistics startup, on a mission to revolutionise the way shipping containers are traded, transported, and used. By leveraging tech infrastructure and automation, we make the entire experience faster, cheaper, and more transparent for our customers.
Shipping containers are becoming the most sustainable and cheapest solution for many building and storage projects, with the container homes market alone projected to grow to USD 73BN per year. We believe by giving more customers better access to containers for alternative use cases, while improving the inherently broken supply chain, we can have huge positive impact on affordable housing and save thousands of tons of CO2 per year.
BOXHUB is well funded by some of the most successful investors in the tech industry, founded by long-term shipping industry experts, and led by award-winning entrepreneurs. We are growing exponentially and need exceptionally motivated talent to join our new HQ in Toronto.
