A trainee working for a large logistics company will get a chance to work on a $10 billion trainee program that will transform the world.
Innovation for the 21st Century, a $50 billion venture-capital investment round that Google co-founded in 2015, will include a $1 billion seed round, according to a statement.
The company, which operates logistics services like air freight, shipping, and parcel delivery, has hired thousands of workers from around the world over the past year, the statement said.
“The company is investing to revolutionize the way the world runs its logistics operations,” a Google spokeswoman said in a statement to CNBC.
The startup said in December it plans to invest $5 billion in new employees over the next five years.
It is a $25 billion investment, up from $20 billion in the previous round, which was led by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
The announcement comes as the company has been struggling to adapt to a world where many companies are using the Internet of Things to automate their operations.
The companies behind the new investment include Amazon and Google, which together have more than 10,000 employees.
