It follows Shipsy expanding their activities in Africa after a rapid growth in customers.

Online commerce is gaining significant momentum in Africa and is opening up lucrative opportunities for SaaS-based logistics management platform providers. According to the International Trade Administration, Africa is projected to surpass half a billion eCommerce users by 2025 with a steady CAGR of 17%. Fashion and electronics products are the biggest sales revenue generators, with fashion products and electronics predicted to reach US$ 13.4 billion and US$ 11.2 billion respectively in annual sales by 2025.

"The growth in Africa's online commerce has been inspiring. Shipsy's technology will play a pivotal role in helping realise the objectives of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), especially with regard to reducing transportation costs and delays and improving service quality. With Apoorva joining us as an advisor for Africa, we are confident we will rapidly proliferate the African market," said Soham Chokshi, CEO and Co-Founder, Shipsy.
