About the company 

ZEBOX is a global startup accelerator gathering a network of entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and ecosystem experts paving new paths toward sustainability starting with the supply chain. It was founded in 2018 by Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and CEO of the CMA CGM Group, a global player in sea, land, air, and logistics solutions.  


Growth in Greater Manchester 

The expansion into Greater Manchester comes as ZEBOX continues its ambition to support and develop the sustainable innovations of tomorrow. 

ZEBOX opened the doors of its UK hub in Manchester in October 2023. The UK hub, based on Portland Street, was launched by Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and became the sixth innovation hub for the global accelerator. 

The hub will accelerate decarbonisation and operational optimisation through technological breakthroughs in the supply chain industry, especially artificial intelligence. 

They see Manchester as a region which is an integral part of the UK’s sustainability drive. The hub will support the UK and Northern Europe’s most promising startups and connect them with corporate partners across ZEBOX’s global community enabling them to test innovative solutions and address business and sustainability challenges across supply chain and logistics.
