Last March we reported on the demise of US-based on-demand shipping start-up, Shyp. The company, which launched in 2016, had struggled to turn the hype surrounding it into a genuine business proposition. But after shuttering its doors, it appears there may be life in the (not so) old dog yet. Tech Crunch is reporting that a third party has acquired the brand and domain name.
Former chief executive Kevin Gibbon tweeted that he was in no way associated with any plans to relaunch and stressed that it was all being undertaken by the mysterious third party. But it seems the intention to relaunch is real, the company’s official Twitter account saying: “We are back! We’re hard at work to rebuild an unparalleled shipping experience. Before we begin operations again, we’d love to hear your feedback in this quick survey.”
