Filipinos often express their love for family members living abroad by sending gifts and care packages, but the process of international shipping can be difficult. ShipIt introduces a new platform that aims to make the process more accessible and easy to use, especially now that the express delivery industry in the Philippines is booming, and there’s no doubt that the country has great potential for international logistics opportunities.
Established by 1Export in 2021, ShipIt has already sent over 2500+ packages to more than 50 countries. ShipIt launched a new platform www.shipit.ph that introduces an easier way to send your love beyond borders. Shippers can now seamlessly book, pay, and schedule their shipments online, eliminating the need for a manual process.
“The vision for ShipIt is to automate the entire process of international shipping and transform what used to be a taxing procedure in order to make it easier for customers to send packages abroad without leaving their homes, just like how local delivery services do it.” Says Mel Nava, CEO of 1Export. “We want to introduce a faster, cheaper, and more efficient shipping system in the Philippines. Before the introduction of the website, every step was done manually. Shipping in person takes hours, even days. With ShipIt, it only takes minutes.”
Apart from the cheap shipping rates, boxes are offered free of charge to all shippers booking online, along with packing services. Additionally, ShipIt picks up packages within Metro Manila at no cost.
Booking a shipment online at www.shipit.ph says goodbye to countless forms for addresses and documents for customs. Users only have to input the necessary information such as item, quantity, weight, and address online to generate a rough estimate before proceeding with payment. After securing payment, packages may be delivered or picked up. Multiple addresses can also be saved online for shippers with repeat transactions. Tracking details are always provided once packages are successfully shipped out.
The usual experience with shipping abroad can be tedious and inconvenient. “Packages are usually held at customs because of different things and requirements. To make it easier and hassle-free for OFWs and their families, we do everything we can and prepare the documents they need. So during the holidays, for example, families can immediately get the packages within 5-7 days and feel the love during holidays or any occasion.” Mel adds.
The ShipIt website features a rate calculator which instantly shows estimated shipping costs based on the customers’ package weight and dimensions. For shippers unsure of the box size, shipping rates to all countries are found online and on their social media pages, too. Shippers can reach ShipIt through Facebook or Instagram to ask or inquire about the rates and contents of their packages.
“It’s my first time ever ship out of the country but the experience was easy and hassle-free with ShipIt. I didn’t even have to leave the house, which was convenient in these times. Hurray for no lines, no waiting, and seamless transactions and payment modes, which is how I always expected shipping internationally to be.” says V. De Guzman, a first-time shipper.
ShipIt also offers a wide range of service options for commercial shipments through ShipIt Fulfillment, ShipIt Amazon, ShipIt Forwarding, ShipIt eBay, and ShipIt Import.
No matter where your loved ones are in the world, ShipIt makes sure they receive the love they deserve. Send love beyond borders now at www.shipit.ph.
