Pickup, an on-demand last-mile logistics solutions provider, has closed a $5 million funding round, according to a Nov. 13 press release. Funds from the round, led by TDF Ventures and Noro-Moseley Partners, will be used for market expansion, growing the product platform and adding staff in key areas.
