Richmond-based Warehowz has launched an innovative self-service solution that taps into AI-driven technology to speed up and simplify the warehousing logistics process more than ever before.

“It’s the first time that anyone’s been able to condense that into a true self-service marketplace,” Warehowz founder and Chief Executive Officer Darrell Jervey said.

The startup, founded in 2018, is a cloud-based logistics technology company that connects businesses in need of “on-demand” storage and fulfillment services with quality warehouses.

More than 1,500 warehouses operate within in the Warehowz network throughout North America.

Jervey said the new AI technology promises to expedite the connection process, so in as little as 24 hours, businesses can find affordable, flexible warehouse space, a process that can often take anywhere from four to six weeks.

“We took a relatively complicated process that typically involves a great deal of negotiation, and over the last year or so, we have synthesized all of the deal points and all of the options that might be included in that kind of contracting,” he said. “But now it has come together into a complete package from A-to-Z where you can do this in a self-serve environment.”
