About Shipit

Shipit — Send packages. No couriers. Just people.

Millions of people ship packages daily and all around the world. However, there is a high chance of a sender running into issues of expensive shipping services, delivery delays, and high risks of shipments getting lost or damaged. Customs and postal services may cause a wide variety of troubles ranging from excessive paperwork to outright theft. At the same time those services cannot boast of outstanding efficiency and fast work: sometimes the shipments are delivered behind all reasonable deadlines. Aside from that, governments often charge different shipping fees and taxes inexplicable to the sender.


Commercial courier companies are not perfect as well. It is worth mentioning that courier and parcel delivery services have to employ a lot of people, machinery, and equipment units as well as to take care of insurance policies for their activities. All that leads to more than significant costs that are eventually carried by customers.


Delivery and courier services often cannot ship a parcel directly from point A to point B and are forced to resort to transit hubs which introduce even more threats and risks. Naturally, the increase in number of intermediary delivery and courier companies involved does not lead to increase of the responsibility of each party involved.


Although courier and parcel delivery companies have made our lives easier, they still have not fully addressed any of the questions above. Naturally, in the world of globalization and digitization and given the constant growth of global GDP and retail e-commerce sales, the significance of these issues is going to increase proportionally to the shipping volumes worldwide.

The world around us is rapidly developing and people all around the globe wanting to make things better than they are today may have only one viable option - to shift from the consumption and possession economy to the sharing economy.

Market growth

In spite of current difficulties, the global market of courier and parcel delivery services constantly develops and provides the delivery companies with billions of revenue. The courier and express delivery industry has been growing by annual 1% during the last five years from 2012 to 2017. The IBISWorld experts expect the demand for courier services to continue to increase over the next five years by 2022. This is caused by the growth of customer spending and demand for goods. Many companies are going to turn to air means of shipping in order to secure out on-time deliveries for the customers. There are almost 3 million employees and 600,000 companies on the market. The market size of the industry currently counts with $240 bln. According to the report by Accenture.com, the market of express deliveries is expected to grow from $237,9 bln in 2017 to $343,1 bln in 2020.

The number of start-ups contributing to sharing economy and attracting more investments grows annually. Investor interest rises to new features and possibilities that collaborative consumption can offer. Sharing goods and services, barter, rent makes people reflect not only on what they get but also how they get it. According to TIME Magazine's visionary article, collaborative consumption is one of 10 ideas that are going to change the world within the next 10 years. It is a new socio-economic model that is going to reshape consumption of services and goods. Although, there are prominent players in some sharing economy industries such as Airbnb in travelling, ZipCar in carsharing, Uber in taxi – the crowd shipping market is still at its very early stages of development.
