Shippo Summit 2017

The inaugural Shippo Summit has come to a close. It was an incredible day of engaging speakers, great attendees, and wonderful sponsors. We thank you all for being part of our inaugural event – you made it what it was!

Our goal for the Shippo Summit was to bring together companies in the ecommerce space to talk about the challenges they face everyday, and provide a space where like-minded people are able to meet and learn from each other. There were conversations about shipping, but also many others about different obstacles they face in the business.

There was a diverse mix of ecommerce businesses, platforms, service providers and carriers such as Gap, Square, Borderlinx, Mercari, Wish, USPS, DHL eCommerce and other great companies.

“The conference was great and certainly a worthwhile trip for me. It really got me thinking about some great ideas we can integrate into our new software platform.”

“I found [networking with other attendees] to be the most beneficial. I was able to meet with a variety of people – learning about their roles, business, and viewpoints of commerce/shipping overall.”
