Agility to invest $100M in digital logistics platform

December 10, 2018: Logistics major Agility will invest $100 million over three years in Shipa.com, a digital logistics platform that lets businesses, entrepreneurs and consumers manage their freight, e-commerce, and urban deliveries online.

“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.”

Shipa.com’s service lines include Shipa Ecommerce, Shipa Delivery and Shipa Freight. Shipa Ecommerce gives online merchants access to some of the world’s fastest growing and most complex e-commerce markets. Shipa Ecommerce 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 US, EU and Asia, as well as regional merchants based in the Middle East. Shipa Ecommerce solutions are underpinned by easy-to-use digital integration: APIs and web interfaces such as checkout integration with customer portals, websites and apps.

Shipa Delivery offers businesses and consumers on-demand same-day, next-day or cross-border delivery across the Arabian Gulf. The platform is accessible by mobile or directly integrated with its business customers’ systems, and provides solutions to optimise for speed, convenience, and affordability.

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.
Al-Saleh described Shipa.com as “Agility’s innovation arm,” accelerating the introduction of technology, development of new digital products, and the overall pace of change in both the parent company and the industry more broadly.

“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.
