Shippit is an Australian startup founded in 2014 in Sydney by Rob Hango-Zada and William On, two young guys who come from marketing studies from University of New South Wales. Both founders have a solid professional background, due to their experiences in big corporations like Procter&Gamble and Unilever, and also in technology consulting companies like Deloitte and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
The idea was officially launched in february 2015 while both entrepreneurs were sharing “horror stories” about buying staff online. In that occasion they started to think on creating a platform that could have helped small-medium enterprises to sell their goods online. That’s how Shippit was thought and launched in the Australian market, and now it is having a great success in the continent.
Here below a short video of presentation of the e-logistic startup.
How Shippit works
The e-logistic startup is really easy to use. It consists in a platform to be used with the app mobile in which buyers and sellers can sign up and create their profiles. The goal to make the shipments at home happen. In a few words, we can say that Shippit is the delivery of merchandise, like the delivery of the food.
The sellers puts in the platforms the availability of the merchandise they have in the shop, and the users can just add goods in the basket and proceed with the order. Once the delivery is done the buyer sends the payment directly through app mobile and provide also a feedback for the service received.
The startup has already won different remarkable awards. Here below are listed some of them:
- In 2018 it won the Westpac Business of Tomorrow
- In 2018 was also the winner of the Retail Fulfilment Awards for the Best Fulfilment Solution
- In 2018 was finalist at Retail Awards for Retail Supplier of the Year
- In 2018 it was also finalist for the Retail Fulfilment Awards for Excellence in International Fulfilment
- In the less recent 2017 it was winner of the Finder Awards for the Best Online Shopping Innovation
Shippit had gotten also very good investments to go ahead in the market. This year indeed it was announced that it raised a series of US $1.6 million.
