John Golob is the founder and CEO of Lanetix, a company backed by Salesforce.com that helps logistics providers such as DHL, Kuehne + Nagel, Li & Fung Logistics and CEVA Logistics increase their gross margin, streamline commercial processes and bring more solutions innovation to market.
Unlike Internet “disrupters” (e.g. the 100+ ‘Ubers of Trucking’), Lanetix targets the existing logistics and transportation industry, helping logistics providers such as domestic freight brokers, value added warehousing firms and carriers compete more effectively. Lanetix solutions range from “CRM for 3PL’s” to solution design and delivery modules, even software to bring chaos to bid desks and tender management workgroups.
Lanetix is John’s sixth start-up since graduating USC in 1991. Previous early stage ventures include Scopus Technology (acquired by Siebel for $500 million), Octane Software (acquired by E.piphany for $1.3 billion), Digital Impact (acquired by Axciom for $190 million) and Xobni (acquired by Yahoo for $90 million) and Good Technology (acquired by Motorola for $500 million).
