Shipwire Investment CEO Letter

Dear Friends,

For the past 5 years, Shipwire has been on a mission to give our customers the shipping muscle of Fortune 500 companies. During that time, we have provisioned warehouses in 3 countries, served businesses with headquarters in over 45 countries, and delighted buyers in more than 180 countries.

We now enter the next phase of that mission.

As a testament to your support, guidance, and patronage, it is our privilege to announce that commerce and technology giants eBay® and Newell-Rubbermaid® have made an investment in Shipwire.

Over the past year, in direct response to your feedback, we”ve added service level guarantees, same-day shipping, inventory alerts, multi-user access, Shipwire Anywhere (our free order management and shipping software), and more. Needless to say, we think that eBay’s and Newell Rubbermaid’s belief, vision and support for Shipwire is a smart investment; one which will accelerate our ability to turn your continuing feedback into the features that will help grow your global business.

It is an incredibly exciting time for our organization. Now with the support of two powerhouses, we can accelerate the development of the enterprise features you want, and reach deeper into the markets where you want to be.

Please let us know where you would like to see our next warehouse. Here are quicklinks to our warehouse interest forms: Asia, Europe, Australia, and U.S. East Coast.

Our growing team is here for you, to help prepare for the holidays. Together we can make this your best selling holiday season ever!

Damon Schechter
Founder and CEO

    It is my opinion that for Shipwire the level of opportunity to the growth ratio is proof of a definitive stance even in such a harsh economy. Unfortunately, not many businesses of this era have been so "lucky" to survive the recession but Shipwire continues to build revenue, while generating a profit margin increase for its partners. It would be very lucrative to expand in other industrious areas around the world, such as, Asia. Asia is considered a trade capitol of the world and when dabbing further into the global aspect, it is always a good idea to become allies with others who have extensive experience and thrive to promote absolute potential.
