There’s no denying that one of the bloodiest parts of a business always lies in logistics. Sending products from one part of the world to another has always been a tedious task, especially if you want to do it at the best prices. It takes a lot of work to shop for rates and the best services.
But things are now changing, especially since fresh blood has seen the need to disrupt the industry. Shippabo is one of the most notable startups that aim to offer a new way for logistics to become more convenient and handy for businesses. And by the looks of it, they are shaking things up wonderfully.
Using an open logistics platform, Shippabo aims to cut down the work required in arranging logistics for businesses and their supply chain partners. They do this by providing you with access to the best logistics providers, including their tech and rates so you can take advantage of what they have to offer.
Shippabo, at the most basic level, works similarly to an aggregator but for logistics services. So instead of having to check manually for each and every shipping company out there and then comparing their rates for the best prices, they will do the grunt work for you.
However, it’s not just for shopping around for shipping rates. Their program will also let you track your shipments and collaborate with other parties involved in your transactions. It will cover all of the bases for your logistics tasks and will let you monitor and handle all of them in one place. This ups the convenience of their services as it’s just easier to be more organized with their tools.
Small businesses that cannot yet afford the prices of traditional freight forwarders will find the services of Shippabo very handy. However, bigger businesses may also find their services advantageous as they guarantee to provide the best choices for their companies.
