Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Building smarter logistics processes and ensuring sustainable supply chain operations took center stage at this year’s Seamless Middle East – the region’s largest payments and eCommerce event.
The eCommerce sector in the Middle East has experienced tremendous growth jumping from USD 5 million five years ago to over USD 50 million by the end of 2022. This has been driven by a dramatic shift in how consumers purchase owing to the availability of multiple online channels to shop from.
To capitalize on this growth and ensure customer-centric delivery operations, retailers and eCommerce companies will need to rapidly digitize and automate their existing logistics processes.
Shipsy, a leading global smart logistics management platform provider, was among the main participants at this year’s Seamless Middle East event.
“We were delighted to be present at this year’s Seamless Middle East – a crucial platform for the industry that brings the spotlight on the need to streamline the way eCommerce companies deliver their products. The UAE is at the forefront of shrinking its carbon footprint and achieving Smart City status. To make this a reality, the eCommerce sector needs to reevaluate its logistics processes to ensure that it’s in line with this vision by ensuring sustainable delivery processes,” said Soham Chokshi, CEO and Co-founder, Shipsy.
Shipsy showcased how its over 170 customers across the globe are providing a seamless delivery experience to their customers using its AI-powered logistics management platform. Shipsy empowers businesses to optimize cross-border logistics, make deliveries cost-efficient and sustainable and mitigate transportation risks.
Seamless Middle East 2022 was a two-day event held at the Dubai World Trade Center. The event saw over 10,000 visitors, 350 exhibitors and 300+ speakers.
As a contributor to the UAE’s mission of achieving its sustainability goals, Shipsy, through its AI-driven smart logistics management solutions, is helping regional and global eCommerce businesses to expedite their logistics sustainability goals.
