Overview

 

Online retail, on-demand delivery solutions and global supply chains have all contributed to an unprecedented increase in deliveries, with over 2 billion parcels being sent in the UK per year and a global market size of $350bn (2017).  However, as the market becomes more competitive, commercial carriers and postal operators are forced to adjust to meet consumer expectations whilst remaining competitive within an increasingly crowded market.  

In response, Hypaship has developed a fully integrated end-to-end solution that provides large shippers, commercial carriers, third party logistic companies and postal operators with the technical shipment infrastructure to improve their service; maximising revenue whilst reducing operating costs.  

Having recently signed a 5 year contract with APC Overnight (UK’s largest independent delivery network with more than 112 locations) and now providing the full postal solution for Jersey Post, the company is targeting international expansion having recently received preferred supplier status by Asia Pacific Post (Union of 27 post offices including China, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore and Australia).   

Commercially launched in 2016 by Neil Gold with 20 years of experience in software and logistics, HypaShip is backed by a supportive investor base including Concentric and EC1 Capital.
