Niko Polvinen takes over the CEO seat at Logmore

Rapid commercial growth is the theme of the year at Logmore. As the company is scaling its operations to meet customer demand, Niko Polvinen takes the helm to help Logmore become the fastest growing logistics platform in Europe in 2021.

Logmore has been a product-centric company from its founding, focused on making deliveries of sensitive goods transparent with elegant, secure, and easy-to-use data loggers that are managed in the cloud. 

Close to 300 small to large enterprises across different industries including food, electronics, and pharma have adopted the Logmore service to secure more than 10,000 shipments. The product development never ends – every day, we strive to make this new generation logistics platform more impactful for our customers, regardless whether their logger fleet is 50, 5,000, or 50,000 units.

With this in mind, it is time to move to the next stage of commercialization, to serve our growing community of Logmore users.

Having a CEO in close contact with the market is a priority,, and nobody has better relationships with Logmore customers than our co-founder Niko Polvinen, who now takes over as CEO of the company. Niko’s customer-centric mindset and drive towards supply chain transparency will benefit all stakeholders.

For this new phase, our current CEO Janne Juhala transitions to Chief Technology Officer. In this position, he gets to make the most of his talents at software and hardware development, making sure Logmore stays ahead of the game and delivering the best price performance and data for our customers.

Logmore is now an international team of more than 30 engineers, logistics specialists, customer support and sales professionals. The company tripled its headcount in 2020 and in 2021, we are looking to hire the best talent in the industry.

The global goal of ending the Covid-19 pandemic requires considerable effort from everyone. As users of our products have proven to us, Logmore has secured the trust of some of the most demanding companies, such as DHL, DB Schenker, and Coop. With Logmore, distributing employees and recipients getting the jab can be certain of the safety of the life-saving vaccines.

Logmore is also strengthening its board of directors. Rainer Sternfeld, managing partner at NordicNinja VC and founder of Planet OS, has started as the chairperson of the board. With his support, Logmore's data expertise becomes more accessible to the logistics world. Rainer's background in the data business allows Logmore to provide ever better insights into the market.
