“Shipa.com makes life easier through technology, whether you are a small business running your supply chain with a few clicks, or a consumer getting your shopping delivered with a few taps on your phone,” Agility Chairwoman Henadi Al-Saleh said. “Shipa.com makes logistics convenient, jargon-free, trackable, accountable and accessible.”
There are three Shipa.com service lines:
• Shipa Ecommerce gives online merchants access to e-commerce markets. It offers integrated freight, fulfilment, delivery and returns solutions across the Arabian Gulf, with additional reach into the EU and Africa planned for the near future. Customers are cross-border retailers based in the U.S., EU and Asia, as well as regional merchants based in the Middle East.
• Shipa Freight allows small businesses to get instant and transparent freight quotes and to book, pay and track ocean and air shipments around the world on any digital or mobile device. It is available in more than 100 countries.
“Logistics is the backbone of commerce. But it’s complex, and that complexity is disproportionately difficult for small businesses to navigate. Small businesses often lack access to the logistics resources, tools and solutions that larger businesses have,” Al-Saleh said, adding that Shipa is “empowering small businesses to take advantage of the opportunities being created by the global digital economy.”
Shipa.com is powered by Agility’s global network and infrastructure. Agility operates in more than 100 countries with 22,000 employees. It is the largest private owner of industrial real estate in the Middle East and Africa.
“Shipa.com is the marriage of Agility’s logistics expertise and resources and the digital-first capabilities of the Shipa platform. It offers enormous value for our customers and brings new value to our company,” Al-Saleh said.
