Khaled Naim, is the co-founder and CEO of Onfleet, a last mile delivery platform. Khaled and his co-founders started working together during grad school at Stanford University where they initially came together solve a problem that plagues delivery businesses in emerging markets: lack of functional street addresses. They went through Stanford’s accelerator program, StartX, before realizing they needed to pivot their business to a more crucial problem facing online retailers and delivery services: lack of technology. Most companies were using archaic systems, primarily pen and paper, spreadsheets, phone calls, and text messages. From there, they decided to build a smartphone-based delivery logistics platform to help these businesses run more efficiently. Enter Onfleet.
