Today I’m joined by Shifl, a dynamic software company who are reimagining freight forwarding, by bringing you one piece of software that coordinates your entire global supply chain.
Shifl is dedicated to bringing an outdated industry into the 21st century, with its one-stop platform designed to bring efficiency, creativity and connectivity to shipping. Founded in 2019, Shifl already has offices in China, India, the Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Georgia.
Today Shabsie Levy, founder and CEO at Shifl, joins me to chat all about the company: what they do; the importance of collaboration and visibility in supply chain; and the future of freight forwarding.
