US-BASED supply chain management technology company project44 said on Thursday (Nov 3) it was valued at US$2.7 billion after its latest funding round that also saw participation from existing investor Goldman Sachs Asset Management.

The US$80 million funding round was led by investment firms Generation Investment Management and AP Moller Holding, while buyout firm TPG, venture capital firm Emergence Capital and others also participated.

Project44 said the funds will be used to measure and reduce emissions across its global supply chain.

Founded in 2014, Chicago-based project44 lets shippers, carriers, and logistics professionals manage supply chains.

Its customers include Coty, Baker Hughes and Nordstrom.

The Covid-19 pandemic set off a crisis in global supply chains, which has also worsened inflation and put pressure on central banks to tame price hikes.
