Brace yourself: Hyper-growth Startup Shippit Takes Off with Major Workforce Expansion.

Shippit is Australia’s leading e-commerce logistics platform. Founded in 2014 by Rob Hango-Zada and Will On Shippit aims to simplify the delivery process while maximizing efficiency. They’re the ‘middleware’ piece connecting retailers to carriers across Australia, New Zealand, and South-East Asia. 

Shipping logistics can be daunting for retailers. It’s a complicated process with lots of room for error. That’s where Shippit comes in.

This allows retailers to save time and focus on their main business while delighting customers.

Through powerful technology they are creating the network that delivers goods to people in the leanest way, whilst leading the way in Sustainability across the logistics industry. This requires a lot of growth...
