Shypple launches world's first digital expeditor platform for fruit and vegetable products

Shypple has launched the first digital expeditor platform for fruit and vegetable products. This Dutch digital forwarder announced this at Fruit Logistica. This, the largest annual fruit and vegetable logistics event, is held in Berlin.

Shypple wants to use this platform to address the specific needs of refrigerated transport shippers. It offers a fast, reliable, efficient solution for products that require flexible, fast shipping. The platform is available to Shypple users starting this spring.

For goods like food and plants, freight transport in the fresh transport market still relies heavily on Excel spreadsheets, emails, phone calls, and other error-prone supply chain management methods. The container sector is overstrained, and increasing delays are creating uncertainty. Fast, efficient transportation is thus quite a challenge. This is especially true for perishable goods, where items with a short shelf life must be transported as quickly as possible to stay fresh.

Shypple has added extra features to meet the needs of refrigerated transport carriers. Where many solutions lean on the GPS data from container ships, the Shypple platform uses "near real-time" terminal information, including the most current waiting times. Shippers know exactly when cargo will be unloaded. They use this information to set up the rest of the supply chain. Then, for example, trucks can be scheduled to arrive immediately after the freight has been offloaded.

Shypple platform users have a clear overview of all their transport activities on a single platform. So, all teams, from the cold store or warehouse to the sales department, get the latest freight data, and the entire organization can respond immediately.

“Innovations of all sizes are truly transforming traditional fresh produce logistics. These are all desperately needed to get fresh goods from one side of the world to the other as quickly as possible. Especially now, in such a taut container market," says Jarell Habets, Shypple's CEO and founder. "We're proud to launch the world's first 'perishable' platform. It provides great insight and convenience, making it an essential asset for quickly getting refrigerated products from point A to point B."
