Online marketplace attracts over 10,000 delivery companies
London, UK – 08/04/2010 Shiply.com, an online transport marketplace which matches people needing to move goods with transport companies going there anyway, has announced sign up figures of over 10,000.
Launched in just June 2008, Shiply has given transport companies of different sizes the opportunity to bid on over £16,000,000 worth of deliveries.
Shiply, which has been said to be like “eBay but for moving goods”, acts as an online auction. Everyday people and businesses list goods they need to move and then get bids from transport companies who are willing to fit the job into their existing routes.
Shiply’s founder, Robert Matthams, recently announced Shell LiveWire young entrepreneur of the year said: “We are ecstatic to have seen such a great take up in Shiply amongst the industry at all levels. It really demonstrates not only sound environmental awareness but also very good business sense. Over 25% of lorries run empty on our road, so it is great to see transport providers making use of it, taking action and raising their profit levels at the same time.”
