Our mission is to help online commercial businesses grow and reach their goals by providing our outsourced logistics service. Our information platform connects webshops, invoicing and delivery companies, and manages all order fulfillment activity of an online shop better than ever before.
The developers at Webshippy were dissatisfied with the state of fulfillment in Hungary, which is what spurred them to develop a service that they, as webshop owners, would expect to have. The company has increased the number of its employees in 2018 from 5 to 22. Its customer base skyrocketed from 15 to nearly 200 and they delivered 40 000 packages monthly in the end of the year period.
We are grateful for the enthusiasm and commitment of our team. This energy is what enabled us to realize our – and others, the webshop owners- dream: to help them succeed in their businesses. We thank our customers for trusting us with outsourcing their logistics and walking on the path on our side – the path of innovation in Hungarian e-commerce.
Thank you for the acknowledgement and we are determined to continue down this road in 2019!
