This eases logistics and makes the total supply chain more efficient - all whilst lowering the hassle and total costs.

What we love

Freight logistics is a field that is dominated by thousands of smaller stakeholders, without transparency and clear communication channels - a pressing problem that slows operations down. Shypple got rid of all these hurdles by providing a highly-scalable solution.
