Starshipit and Sherpa’s new integration: Making shipping easy

2021-08-23

Written by Starshipit

Last year, 22% of eCommerce stores agreed delivery and fulfilment was their greatest challenge. As consumers delivery expectations get higher and higher, competing against eCommerce giants like Amazon can feel daunting.

The good news is, couriers are stepping up to the plate and offering services that not only meet customer expectations but exceed them.

Cue on-demand delivery service, Sherpa - Starshipit’s latest integration.

Why Sherpa?

Sherpa’s mission is to change the way retailers execute their last-mile fulfilment by empowering eCommerce stores to be able to offer:

  • Express and same-day delivery options (1, 2, and 4-hour)
  • Weekend, twilight and window-based deliveries
  • Complete transparency with live GPS tracking
  • Direct courier contact at the click of a button – that's right, your customers can speak directly with their courier driver.
“We are thrilled to partner with Sherpa to bring on-demand and same-day delivery to our product offering. This integration has been highly anticipated by our customers and will enable them to further enhance their customer experience, increase sales conversion and streamline their fulfilment operations.”
— Jennifer Diaz, Head of Growth

A network of 10,000 drivers

Sherpa also has a sharing economy network of over 10,000 drivers (sherpas) - averaging a 4.85-star rating. That means drivers roaming around your area are always ready to pick up those last-minute parcels or urgent orders. Whether you are needing a motorbike, car, or van - Sherpa can provide you with a driver in record time. And they are only getting bigger, growing 110% per year.

Sherpa is changing the way retailers do delivery, increasing conversion and building brand loyalty by giving customers the delivery service they desire.
