The company plans to strengthen its existing SaaS and AaaS-based SCM solutions through both organic and inorganic routes
Gurugram-based 3SC (SS Supply Chain Solutions Pvt. Ltd), a next-gen supply chain planning and logistics company, announced on Friday that it has raised $15 million in Series B funding led by GEF Capital’s South Asia Fund. Prior to this, the company raised angel funding in 2013-14.
