Think about your most recent purchase. Regardless of what it was (new tube of toothpaste, dog treats for your pup, or a new filter for your water purification system), logistics is the system behind getting it into your hands. The logistics industry is made up of a highly interconnected supply chain network that manufactures raw materials into finished products and connects producers and consumers through various channels. This sequence of events involves many moving parts, including purchasing, packaging, shipping, and transporting materials to distributors to sell to the end customer. Here are Mexico's most funded logistics startups in 2022:
