I'm frankly surprised it's not already automated. There have been automated sorting facilities for packages for decades.

SpotHero tops off with another $30 million

SpotHero, which recently bought rival Parking Panda, raised another $30 million to continue expanding its footprint and its technology. The latest infusion of cash brings SpotHero's total fundraising to $57.5 million.

"This is the funding round that gets us to profitability," said CEO Mark Lawrence. "We're in control of our own destiny."

The Chicago-based startup already has added 53 employees this year, including the Parking Panda acquisition, and headcount tops 200. Lawrence declined to disclose revenue, but he said it doubled last year.
