Zonos decodes cross border
Cross border problems aren’t rooted in logistics; they’re in technology. We may not have control over government bureaucracy, but we can make it easier for online retailers to overcome the red tape.
Individuals who have an unhealthy obsession with
fixing what’s broken in global commerce.
The Zonos story
Clint Reid worked as an International Account Executive at UPS before starting his own company in 2009. He had met with the owner of a company selling goods to Canada. After explaining the overly complex process of filing paperwork and all the taxes involved, the owner lamented it was just too complicated and expensive to continue selling abroad.
After experiencing the same pains of international commerce over and over again with other clients, Clint ultimately left his job at UPS to start building the best cross-border technology solution possible.
