Company Description

At Shipsy, we aspire to be at the forefront of technology with next-generation products that change the way logistics is managed, and positively impact millions of people

Over the past 6 years, Shipsy has gained a dominant share in the domestic logistics space with over 30% of the India courier/express industry flowing through our system. We have also gained a foothold in international markets with companies in Saudi Arabia, UAE, North Africa, and Southeast Asia using our platform. This platform processes over 1.5 million transactions a day across these customers.

Global trade still largely runs on a messy chain of emails and excel files. Trillions of dollars of trade essentially runs on a platform called email. Shipsy is there to solve this problem. Shipsy's SaaS based platform helps businesses manage all aspects of international trade - working with vendors to procure rates for shipping, having a digital workflow management platform to complete all documentation related activities, integrations with global shipping lines to bring about end to end visibility and reducing invoicing errors through smart AI based reconciliation.

~10% of India's global trade through its platform, thereby helping 5 of the top 10 exporters and importers reduce costs and get end to end shipment visibility. With roots growing in Middle East and South East Asia, Shipsy is quickly becoming the de facto platform to manage international trade.

We are over a 150 member team now, with offices in 4 locations - Gurgaon (HO), Mumbai, Bangalore, Dubai, from top institutes across the country like IITs, IIITs, NITs with experience in Big Data, Software Architecture, ML, AI, Robotics, Blockchain. In combination, we have worked at Samsung Korea, MIT Media Labs, CMU Robotics, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Samsung Research, GE Research, Qualcomm Research, etc. and have also been entrepreneurs. We have numerous research publications and patents. The core team has computer scientists, electrical engineers from IIT Delhi and Madras, and this core tech focus would contribute tremendously to your learning. We also have some very good employee benefits such as the scholarship program and more that will further enhance your learning.
