India-based leading logistics Software as a Service (SaaS) company, Shipsy has plans to expand its footprints in the Middle East region by 2025.

The decision was made in response to the rising demand for logistics and supply chain automation, which increased even further during COVID-19 and is expected to continue to rise in the coming years.

The Indian company was founded with the goal of creating a forum for data-driven decision-making and improving operational efficiency in the logistics process. The firm has assisted both shippers and logistics companies in streamlining their processes and lowering overall logistics costs by promoting logistics automation.

According to the company statement, “The prolonged pain of lockdown has made business continuity nearly impossible. However, it spiked the number of online orders, which was also difficult to manage considering the new norms like contactless deliveries and cashless payments.”

“Shipsy’s logistics platform has helped us control the logistics operations through a centralized dashboard. It offers features like digitized POD, real-time tracking, end-customer visibility, and more, which not only helped serve our customers better but enhance the customer base significantly over the last 1 year,” the company added.

As a part of the company’s expansion plan, Shipsy is also preparing to set up a regional headquarter to meet the rising demand in the post-COVID world along with expanding its partner channel ecosystem.

While Shipsy continues to strengthen its role in the Middle East, the company’s main focus over the next five years will be on developing dedicated support and IT infrastructure to serve the region’s growing demand for logistics automation, as per the company.
