About us

We provide logistics made for tomorrow.
 
Better e-commerce operations — fast, transparent, and affordable.
Hive’s mission is to digitize logistics for e-commerce merchants, enabling businesses to run their operations on autopilot. Hive is the operational brain for D2C brands, taking on order fulfillment, shipping, returns, and more for a wide range of companies and product categories. We help enable fast-growing brands such as Yepoda, Ela Mo, and Holy Energy to grow.

Hive is logistics for the future.

Hive focuses on changing the way e-commerce fulfillment is done and strives toward creating the most advanced and sustainable solutions in the logistics field, enabling our customers to keep growing while keeping them close to the customer.
 
At Hive, we believe fostering diversity in every team makes us a stronger company overall.
