Robust Raises $3 Million in Funding Round to Expand Its Logistics and Delivery Services Using Artificial Intelligence

The startup technology company Robust, specializing in logistics and the use of artificial intelligence closed a funding round of $3 million led by Silicon Badia, with additional participation from Rizm for Investment, Flat6Labs, and Saudi investors. This funding was raised to support the next phase of the company’s regional expansion.

Robust, a company that provides online logistics delivery management solutions with the help of artificial intelligence, has offered its services in securing product deliveries for several major brands such as Buffalo Burger, El Ezaby Pharmacies, and Jumlety in various regional markets including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, and Tunisia. Robust has gained an excellent reputation in various industries, including pharmacies, central markets, and diagnostics.

Robust uses machine learning to improve its services and develop best practices. It has innovated technologies that allow precise automatic dispatch through automated in-store decisions. It also provides “smart routes” for drivers based on textual addresses, making delivery easier for customers over the phone. Additionally, Robust offers immediate salaries for its fleet heat maps for customers, and analytics to enhance customer satisfaction. Smart fleet management using artificial intelligence helps in the advanced detection of manipulation attempts.

Robust manages more than 15,000 delivery drivers and serves nearly 10 million customers. It has fulfilled over 40 million orders and significantly increased delivery speed by eliminating attention to efficiency. It has also succeeded in significantly reducing returns and operating costs. Thanks to tight control over drivers’ trips, driver productivity has increased by 40%, and the rate of manipulation has been reduced to less than 5%.

Regarding growth, Robust has achieved great success with an annual revenue growth of 400%. It plans to use the new funding to expand this growth to the entire Middle East and North Africa delivery market. It will also develop special solutions for e-commerce and general delivery by offering custom-designed automated tools.

Hossam Shafik, an investor at Silicon Badia, said, “We are excited to support the delivery management field. This SaaS solution stands out in a sector ready for modernization through full automation of the delivery process. It offers unique value to all parties involved, including store managers, delivery agents, and end customers. Our investment reflects our belief in the team’s vision and capabilities, and we are keen to support their journey towards regional and global success.”

Mohamed Jisrha, CEO and co-founder of Robust, said: “This investment enables us to bring Robust’s transformative power to companies across the Middle East and North Africa and to drive the next phase of our growth, by making Robust the main assistant for any delivery operations undertaken by companies. Our goal is to redefine the meaning of automated delivery operations by applying our technology to the finest details for our customers.”
