Mesh Korea was founded in January 2013 with a goal of bringing innovation to the logistics market 

through the introduction of information and communications technology (ICT). 

The company launched Korea’s first on-demand, e-commerce application, called “Bootake” 

(a Korean phrase meaning “do me a favor”) and now operates the premium same-day delivery service 

platform “Mesh Prime” and the motorcycle courier system “Vroong.”

 

Mesh Prime has simplified the ordering process in the motorcycle logistics market through its independently 

developed network technology, which features an automatic, location-based dispatch algorithm that optimizes 

delivery routes and times and minimizes waiting times for delivery drivers. Mesh Korea is currently working 

together with more than 11,000 motorcycle couriers, 3,000 of whom work exclusively for Mesh Korea’s 

delivery service. The company provides same-day delivery services for McDonald’s, Burger King, Mr. Pizza, 

and other restaurant franchises, as well as for grocery and convenience stores. In recent years, it has 

expanded its business operations to include fresh food delivery. Using Mesh Korea’s mobile application, 

users can place orders, and delivery drivers can make their deliveries.

 


 

What Led the CEO to Leave Global Finance to Become a Startup Founder?

Before starting his own business, Ryu Jeong-beom, the founder and CEO of Mesh Korea, graduated from 

Columbia University with a major in financial economics and a master of business administration (MBA) 

and had started a successful career working for global consulting firms and financial companies such as 

Deloitte and Barclays. However, it was during his time working for a domestic IT company, in lieu of military 

service, that he first became interested in starting his own business.

 

One day, Ryu saw some motorcycle delivery drivers gathered near their company waiting for an order 

(call) to come in. This led him to think that there would probably be demand for a more rational IT-based 

system for managing delivery drivers. Ryu said, “I proposed my business idea to the company I was working 

for at the time, but they turned me down due to a lack of funding.” 

He added, “Later, after my father passed away following a period of illness, I decided to start the business 

on my own.” While looking after his father, Ryu thought seriously about how to live a meaningful life. 

Ryu’s father had worked for a big company, but left to start his own business, leading him to experience 

great difficulty and frustration. Nonetheless, he encouraged his son to start a business as well, saying that 

he could make good friends through the experience. Following his father’s funeral, Ryu dedicated himself 

to preparing to launch a startup company. At the time, his friends, who were thinking of starting a business 

as well, left their relatively secure positions with a large foreign corporation and joined Ryu to found Mesh Korea.

 

 

Became Keenly Aware of the Difficulties Delivery Drivers Face and Improved Services

From the very beginning, Mesh Korea focused on developing IT systems with the aim of bringing much-needed 

innovation to the logistics market. The company spent billions of Korean won on the development of automated 

dispatch solutions with which they could maximize logistics efficiency. The friends also became aware of the 

poor working conditions of delivery drivers, leading them to strive to improve logistics services with the needs 

and wellbeing of the drivers in mind. Ryu said, “On rainy days, I found that I couldn’t focus on only making more 

deliveries. The wet roads increase the risk to delivery drivers and reduce business efficiency.” He stressed, 

“At those times, I became keenly aware of the difficulties delivery drivers face on a daily basis.” 

To address such issues, Mesh Korea instituted a policy that focused on the needs and wellbeing of delivery drivers. 

One way in which the company sought to improve working conditions for delivery drivers was by setting up 

40 Vroong stations at logistics bases nationwide. Designed to cater to the welfare of delivery drivers, 

Vroong stations provide space for drivers to take a break and get some rest. They also serve as venues 

for training sessions and provide delivery-related items to drivers, such as delivery bags, helmets, and raincoats.

 

Taking the Lead with Globally Recognized Technology and Exports of Logistics System

Mesh Korea is also working to develop more efficient logistics systems based on the belief that such 

efficiency will lead to greater stability of logistics services. With the recent growth and development of 

e-commerce, there has been a dramatic increase in the demand for innovation in logistics systems worldwide. 

Accordingly, Mesh Korea anticipated that its logistics system would become a bridgehead for overseas expansion. 

Prior to entering overseas markets, Mesh Korea was selected to become a member company of Born2Global, 

through which it received consulting from patent and marketing experts.

 

Last year, Mesh Korea signed MOU to supply Singapore’s Honestbee with its “Vroong Engine.” 

With this, the company has demonstrated that it is capable of not only operating a delivery network, 

but becoming a globally recognized technology solution provider as well. Ryu said, “Mesh Korea’s 

innovative logistics technology has garnered greater recognition overseas than at home.” He went on 

to express his great confidence in the company, saying, “Even if Amazon were to come to Korea, 

it would have to work with us.”
