Shipit is joining the sharing economy and is looking to become the Uber of international shipping. It’s a platform on which senders and travelers are joined by a mobile app to facilitate the delivery of packages and generate income in the interim. The Shipit platform is targeting speedy, secure and cost-efficient deliveries while disrupting what’s projected to become a $340 billion express delivery market.
The shipper snaps a photo of the image they want to ship with their mobile phone. Next, enter point A, reflecting where the item is shipping from, and point B, reflecting where the item is going to, into the Shipit app. Add details such as size and value of the item as well as a delivery fee amount. The Shipit app then identifies potential travel candidates for the shipper to choose from. The shipper and traveler communicate via a messenger tool. The shipper hands off the item to the traveler and tracks their item until delivery.
Shipit verifies users on its platform via multi-factor verification and monitors shipments for safe delivery. The app boasts an interactive interface that facilitates communication between the shipper and traveler.
Users are connected via smart contracts and the history of user activity is recorded on the blockchain.
There is also a Shipit (SHPT) token, and a crypto wallet provides “freedom of payments” across any cryptocurrency. Fiat can be converted to crypto in the app. Users pay a fee to Shipit for the service in the same currency that was used in the transaction.
2.5 billion potential customers across 120 countries, especially cross-border travelers by cars, planes and trains.
