Late 2018: The vision for a more efficient supply chain

Massimo Rossetti dedicated two decades helping multinational enterprises optimize their logistics processes and achieving millions in cost savings.

Massimo’s expertise caught the attention of his long-time friend, successful investor, and serial entrepreneur, Joachim Paech.

One day, while catching up at a Miami coffee shop, the two discussed their shared vision for a software solution that could digitalize Massimo’s methodology. It was from this chance meeting that the idea for ALPHA Augmented Services was born.

2019-2021: From vision to product

As Massimo worked on laying out the initial concept, Laurin Paech, an expert in computer science with a background from ETH Zurich University, joined the founding team to bring his own valuable insights.

After completing the initial requirements, Dan Diaconu was brought on as the first member of the development team and began laying the groundwork for ALPHA’s advanced algorithms and user interfaces.

By the end of 2021, the company opened its first office in Miami, USA, establishing a foothold in one of the world’s most important logistics hubs.

2021-2023: Building a company

ALPHA established its global headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, strategically positioning itself at the heart of Europe’s logistics industry.  The company’s management team was also strengthened with the addition of Andres Ruiz as CTO and Amjad Ladak as COO.

Andres brings extensive experience as a technologist and entrepreneur, having previously been part of the founding teams at four startups and working at leading software providers like Beam.

Amjad has over 20 years of leadership experience in various supply chain and logistics positions.  Prior to joining ALPHA, he served as SVP – Global Operations at a top global freight forwarder.

Thanks to its strong value proposition, ALPHA reached a significant milestone in 2022 by successfully onboarding its first customer.  By year-end, the company had grown to a team of 10 highly skilled and dedicated professionals.

What companies have to say about us.

I had a great exchange with the Alpha Augmented team. We have optimised our workflow and reduced our operating costs by more than 20% !

Diego EspinosaCEO - EximCargo Group - Uruguay

I could not believe the number of rules we had in place that were limiting our ability to ship efficiently. ALPHA’s software estimated the financial impact of each rule and helped us to make strategic changes.

At first, I was worried that I would need to change our processes. I was surprised that we did not have to make any changes and gained more control over our suppliers’ practices.
