We Understand Your Challenges
Shippabo Founder, Nina Luu, ran a successful business importing textiles and was frustrated by the complex and disconnected container shipping procurement and booking processes. Over and over, she kept hearing how other importers had the same issues - and she did something about it.
Today, we extend the same solution and benefits to our customers through the Shippabo platform, the easiest and most predictable way to ship.
In the sporting goods industry, early prediction and forecasting are important; retailers must anticipate their sales and procure inventory to avoid any outdated inventory and subsequent losses because of unavailable new inventory.
