Zenport is a startup building the open platform of global supply chain management (“SCM”), addressing the global market with USD 30 -50 Billion potentially. Opening this market, we aspire to be an Operating System of global SCM.
Our engineering team is international, currently having members from the US, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Japan. We don’t require any Japanese ability and welcome candidates who are not currently based in Japan but looking to relocate here.
Connect economies and people beyond borders. Globalization, which has been developing for several thousand years, is now at the mature stage following rapid growth over the last three decades. However, it has faced a series of challenges in recent years, such as the US–China trade war and the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, the world needs the global economy and people working together if it is to thrive. Thus, Zenport will continue to serve as a bridgehead, keeping the world’s economies and people connected and contributing to the creation of a prosperous future.
Build a global ecosystem for simple and agile SCM. Originally, globalization focused on the pursuit of cheap products from distant countries. However, now it has reached the mature stage, more flexibility is necessary to closely connect the operations of the entire supply chain, and this is becoming increasingly important in relation to sustainability. We are building a business ecosystem to enable agile and flexible SCM, connecting all stakeholders, services, and technologies.
Embrace differences to make a difference. We embrace “coexistence” and “integration”. The integration of differences is a means of creation/innovation, and thus we work together to create a better future by moving beyond national and cultural borders to integrate differences in people, services, and technologies.
Our response to COVID-19
We’ve switched to working remotely, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
