The Whitebox team met when they were working at mp3Car, a forum and ecommerce store that sold hard-to-find electronic parts. Mp3Car shipped all of their orders out of a cramped, disorganized office space, and had no idea what their inventory levels were at any given moment.
Soon enough, mp3Car was in such trouble that President Robert Wray knew he needed a big change. He didn't even know how much money the company was making (or losing). Rob took a hard look at mp3Car’s business model, and built a system to organize and automate the company. After two years of implementing this system, mp3Car’s profits were up 607%.
Rob and the team thought other small businesses could benefit from the same logistics services and software, and Whitebox was born.
