Shipium helps ecommerce scale profitably.
Modern ecommerce companies turn to Shipium when they want to increase revenue, improve loyalty, and decreases costs by adding new supply chain technology. Build-vs-buy has never been an easier calculation.
Shipium centers on the idea that every ecommerce business can compete in today’s economy by adopting a few modern principles. The behemoths of ecommerce can sometimes feel like they are using the dark arts to gain an advantage. But their advantage comes from relatively simple ideas that anybody can adopt—including you.
Shipium's top principles for a modern ecommerce supply chain.
- Prioritize customer-centric metrics
- Money saved is money used to grow the business
- There is no point to operations improving the delivery experience unless marketers can merchandise the improvements to customers
- Consumers prioritize delivery price, then speed, then convenience
- You can only ship stuff from where it is located
- Interoperability is king

We intimately understand these principles. Shipium is founded by Jason Murray and Mac Brown, two supply chain veterans from Amazon and Zulily, the ecommerce giants who pioneered a relentless focus on the customer. For operations teams, that meant completely rethinking the status quo of supply chains, which are the ideas behind Shipium’s solutions. The principles that came out of those efforts guide the value we deliver to customers today.
The company is backed by Ventures, a Seattle venture firm focused on empowering differentiated ideas.
