WHAT WE DO

Every second, 640 parcels are shipped in the US.

20% fail to reach their destination on time.

An incredible 11 million parcels per day.

That’s a lot of unhappy customers.

Coros provides visibility into shipment accuracy so that shippers and carriers get your parcel, to you, on time. If you’ve been frustrated by late delivery, then come and help us fix it for everyone.

We use visual imagery to create ground truth data for the supply chain at Fortune 50 scale; we engineer systems that deliver 99.9% accuracy when tracking fast-moving objects, and we guarantee enterprise-class reliability and availability to our customers.

Coros is a seed-stage company with clearly defined MVP and early customers that have validated product-market fit. Our reference customers are household brands helping harden our services for scale.
