Our Story

We want to make deliveries easier for everyone while reducing CO2 emissions.

Back in 2008, our founder, Robert, noticed that the lorry delivering a pool table to his student house in Manchester would be driving back to London completely empty...

Not only is this a waste of profit, time and CO2 emissions - it is widespread throughout logistics. Over 25% of vehicles run completely empty and over 50% run only part-full according to department for transport stats.

Shiply was born - An online transport marketplace that connects delivery companies and customers. We empower delivery companies to maximise spare vehicle space (thus reducing harmful CO2 emissions). All while providing users with the best possible price for their delivery.

To date Shiply remains privately owned and has been used by millions of users across the world.
