Sqwirl is a logistics and cargo service founded by Karl Abou Zeid and Ziad Jureidini. The concept of Sqwirl started in October 2015, when co-founder Karl Abou Zeid saw a problem with the domestic courier. Sqwirl initially operated as a local on-demand delivery service app, through which users could request a carrier to pick up and deliver anything, with real-time tracking until drop-off.
In January 2016, Sqwirl raised $10K and released the first website blueprints. In April, Sqwirl got accepted to join the Speed@bdd program, and raised another round of $30K. Later on in June, Sqwirl got their first MVP, hired their first driver and launched their app. In its early days, Sqwirl competed with local post offices who often deliver the next day by offering same day delivery. After completing 4000 deliveries, Sqwirl raised additional funding in March, to transition into a software solution company targeting courier and logistics companies rather than small businesses and individuals. With this recent expansion, Sqwirl moved from operating motorcycles and cars to overseeing Cargo trucks and other vehicles. Sqwirl is now the only of its kind in Lebanon offering companies transparent and trackable cargo services.
