Shipz Inc has launched its new platform to bring neutral bid-and-ship freight solutions to mid-market shippers. Working to simplify the complexity often found in logistics, the Shipz platform closes the gap between shippers and forwarders, creating an accessible and hassle-free supply chain for all.
In the current market, many mid-sized companies want to work with forwarders, but are limited by the current process; meanwhile, forwarders are equally strained by the amount of “free” work they do. Combined with the industry’s continuous evolution and complexity, matching the two sets of needs has historically been a challenge. The Shipz platform aims to break down those barriers, using insight-driven change and a passion for better business.
Shipz Founder and CEO Sarah Barnes explained: “Whilst the industry’s rapid growth and technological advancement is a great thing, it started to become clear to me that it was leaving some businesses behind. Nobody wants to see the industry become monopolized by big business, whilst small and medium-sized enterprises are unable to stay in the game. I founded Shipz to even out the playing field, champion small business and facilitate those much-needed networks and connections. Efficient, effective logistics chains reduce carbon footprints, support small businesses, and democratize trade.”
From quick and accurate quotes, selecting the right partners that fit your business to secure goods storage, shippers and forwarders will see a variety of benefits by connecting with the Shipz platform. The brainchild of logistician turned supply chain marketer and tech CEO, Sarah Barnes, Shipz brings all her experience, knowledge, and passion into one essential platform for the supply chain industry.
Sarah was recently named one of the Top 100 most influential women leaders in Supply Chain and one of Top 100 most influential Women in Canadian Supply Chain. She is also the Founder and host of the popular Let’s Talk Supply Chain Podcast (LTSC), through which she brings awareness to brands and hot topics in the industry, including her Women in Supply Chain series.
