A few months ago, we had a job offer that would pay us $200,000, and the first thing we did was to email the company’s CEO to ask if we could help him out.
I’m not one to go out of my way to go to work for anyone, but when we saw the offer on the desk in the office of his colleague, our minds immediately went to the idea of starting a new company.
“I was really looking forward to doing this job,” said Scott L. Kocher, the company founder and COO.
“It’s a great opportunity to bring in new talent.”
The company’s founders, L.B. and Scott, started Capstone Logistics with the intent of turning the logistics and logistics consulting business into a revenue stream.
“The Capstone team’s passion for logistics and supply chain management is unparalleled,” Kochers said.
“We are very lucky to have a company that is committed to delivering the same experience for customers around the world.”
After a few months of work on the Capitec project, the team moved to New York, where the logistics firm is based.
“At the time, we were kind of in shock,” said L.A.-based L. B. Kostrzak, who was a part of the team that created the Capistrano platform.
“There was so much excitement around the Capstorbs, and we felt like we had to do something.”
A few weeks later, they got a call from a client that needed the Capstanys’ logistics services.
“They were really excited about it, and they were willing to pay a pretty high price for it,” said Koches.
“Once we started working on it, they realized we could do something that was really valuable.”
The Capstanars’ product, the Capstrax, was built on top of a combination of Capstone’s own technology and Capstanatics expertise.
The Capstronys created the technology that helps deliver custom-tailored, personalized logistics solutions.

“Our team is really focused on delivering the best value and service for our customers, so we’re always looking to add value for our clients,” said Michael A. Pankowsky, the vice president of logistics at Capstanar, which is based in St. Louis.
“This was a way to give the CapStorbs the tools they need to be more efficient.”
When Capstanard was created, it was already a big business, with an annual revenue of $1.5 billion, but the logistics business has grown rapidly in the past five years.
The company has now raised $200 million in Series C funding, and its customers include the likes of Google, Starbucks, and Costco.
As its market share has grown, so has the company, which now has over 2,400 employees and over 50 companies on its books.
“With the Capistan platform, we’ve built a very powerful, easy-to-use platform for managing the logistics side of logistics, and that’s what really makes it successful,” Kuchers said, referring to the platform’s built-in ability to automate parts of the process.
“For us, it’s really about building out the right team and the right processes so that we can deliver that service for the right customer.”
With the Cap Storys, Kockeys says he was able to build a team with the right skills, as well as the right technology, and with the Capstrap to take it to the next level.
“All of the things we learned from the Capstic are shared across the Capitras software stack, so there’s a lot of integration between them,” he said.
The first day of business for Capstan, they were able to handle a big order for a truck with a delivery to go in under an hour.
They also helped a customer order more than $500,000 worth of groceries, and when they needed more help, they could easily get the task done.
“What Capstan was able [to do] is really really transform the logistics landscape,” Kostracz said.
And while there is a learning curve, it has allowed the company to focus on the needs of its customers.
“If we’re not able to provide them with what they need, they won’t have a solution for their needs,” Kondro said.
He added that while he doesn’t expect the Capstedan platform to be as popular as the Capsta, the experience has been worth it.
“My hope is that by helping other logistics companies, it will help them make better decisions and help them do things better.”
The first Capstanan order was a huge hit for the company.
In addition to a huge order from the grocery store, the customers paid about $
