About Us

Mission

Consumer behaviour is changing dramatically - shaking up retail, food production, and even the sources of energy used in manufacturing. Behind the scenes, supply chain is more competitive than ever as new entrants have scrambled to take advantage of the changing landscape.

As consumer norms shift, there have been some casualties but others have thrived and are growing at a rapid pace - demanding more from their logistics providers to ensure they remain competitive.

In response, logistics companies & teams are ramping up on technology to support their clients - old & new - in this modern world. Whilst software has been improving the way we work for decades, the reliance on good, old-fashioned email isn’t changing anytime soon.

As supply chain companies strive for increased optimization, the burden of unstructured data is becoming more apparent, preventing businesses from opening up new revenue streams, improving market and pricing predictions, or making continual efficiency gains.

Our mission is to accelerate the next generation of supply chain with specialised data extraction. Our product connects to any email inbox or unstructured data source and automatically extracts data from emails & attachments in real-time - outputting a clean, structured feed via API.

We enable teams to shift towards high-value tasks and organisations to build for the future.

How it works

History

Shipmax was founded in 2016 in London, UK after experiencing the inefficiencies involved in transporting bulk products: clunky, confusing software, spreadsheets, and thousands of emails each day.

In 2017, we joined Y Combinator to accelerate our journey. After an intense few months of building product and delighting early users, we won the financial support of a number of leading technology investors, raising $2.5 million to help us grow.

Initially, Shipamax focused on serving customers in bulk and tanker shipping - steadily winning over some of the largest global logistics organisations as clients and long-term partners in development.

Through serving clients of all sizes - from one-person brokers to the largest shippers in the world - we noticed a common thread. The technology we’d built for extracting data from the thousands of emails received each day freed up time, allowing teams to cut the time they spend on monotonous admin, and increase the time spent on driving profit. Organisations could finally take control of their data, build the workflows and extract the insights that their existing systems had prevented them from doing.

In 2018, we began working with freight forwarding clients, adapting our platform to reach a high level of accuracy for the unique requirements of this industry. With our experience understanding context in unstructured bulk and tanker shipping data, we support freight forwarders by extracting data within emails on ocean container shipments - allowing them to also gain control of their data, build automated workflows, and extract unique insights.

A team of Data Scientists, Engineers & Commercial Support based in London, Shipamax is dedicated to delivering commercial results with expert customer success support and a commitment to technology innovation and excellence.
