Summary

The unprecedented issues as result of the corona pandemic and most recently the Suez canal illustrate how fragile global trade can be and how much need there is for more real time planning, control and flexibility. Along with each vessel, a crate of paperwork is flown to the destination port, demonstrating that this huge market is desperately longing for innovation, which Shypple is providing through its technology-driven platform. Founded in 2016, the Shypple platform and digital freight forwarding service already connects over 3,000 businesses, including Bunzl and HKliving to manage and improve their supply chain. Creating true value through increased efficiency, direct transport cost savings, minimizing errors, performance improvements of suppliers and forwarders and better consolidations, optimizing global trade. The company is headquartered in Rotterdam, also home to Europe’s largest port, with close proximity to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and has offices in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai.
