We made the list!

Fast Company — the monthly business magazine — included Pio in their 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards!

For over two decades, the world's largest corporations have been able to make significant investments into automating their logistics — increasing efficiency and maximizing profits. These advantages have been almost entirely inaccessible to smaller, but just as successful, businesses that have to fight an expensive, uphill battle in order to scale up and see continued growth.

While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems.

Fast Company, Editor-in-Chief

Pio is leveling the playing field by democratizing warehouse automation. Smaller brands and e-commerce businesses now have the option to maintain control of their operations without reinventing the wheel. When creators and creatives are enabled to get more of their time, energy and resources away from ballooning logistics costs and complexities, they are able to get back to growing their business.

It’s super awesome for us to be recognized by Fast Company. From the start, Pio has been about leveling the playing field for e-commerce and we’ve always thought that was a world-changing idea. Apparently, we’re not the only ones who think so!
