“When talent meets opportunity”
The first steps date back to early 2019 when the founders conduct a study on last-mile logistics solutions applied to the eCommerce world where considerable market fragmentation combined with technological complexity is evident. A few months later the GEL Proximity project was born with a still embryonic Project Team. In December GEL Proximity wins Switch2Product and begins its acceleration path in Polihub.
In July 2020 it is established as a private capital company and is recognized among the prestigious Spin Offs of the Politecnico di Milano. The project immediately took off also thanks to the interest shown by many professionals and companies in the sector: the first capital raising was such a success that a second one had to be opened a few months later in the face of the many requests received. At the end of 2020, GEL Proximity raises half a million euros. On March 9, 2021, the technological solution is officially presented to the Italian market.
As of May 2022, GEL Proximity became part of the MBE Worldwide Group, a leading global platform offering solutions in eCommerce, shipping, logistics, and printing and marketing services to support SMEs and individuals.
Since that day, we have not stopped. Thanks to all the people who work every day to build a more efficient and sustainable Proximity Logistics because with their experiences and talents they are the real beating heart of GEL Proximity.
