Today, we are inviting the public to try Shiip with us. 4 months ago we started an experiment to understand what part of the logistics value chain we can improve for our @Listbuy customers.
We put together a simple process to pick up and deliver our customer's items with our team and designated local delivery partners. Our goal was to prioritize competitiveness, effectiveness, and efficiency. Thankfully, some Listbuy customers became our early users. In that period we did close to a thousand orders and over 3 million is sales in international and local deliveries to key part of the country, but we are only able to serve a very small market. Many people wanted and needed to experience what our customers enjoyed.
This is what we learned
1. Our customers want to deliver their items as quick as possible
2. They want to give competitive delivery pricing to their customers
3. They want to track shipment anytime and anywhere
4. Our customers want to create shipment on existing channels like Whatsapp
5. They want to fulfill all their logistics need in one location
6. Some want to be able to integrate delivery into their existing eCommerce infrastructures, Woocommerce, Shopify, Flutterwave store, Paystack store etc
SHiiP is designed to connect individuals and small businesses with the best and most trusted delivery options, offer discounted shipping, and real-time rate comparison from all leading carriers, plus on-demand tracking, customer shipping notifications, seamless handling of returns, and more.
