Personal cargo and courier service has received a big boost via the Internet. Now a new startup ManyShip, is attempting to offer similar revolution in connecting travelers with cargo.
ManyShip is a Peer–to–Peer (P2P) Social Network with a focus on Shipping or sending goods with people who are traveling. In other words, travelers with extra space can offer to carry packages. ManyShip could surely be one of its kind, Social Shipping Platform.
How does the platform aide shipping? Sending cargo is not cheap. Reliable Courier services charge substantial rates for individuals who do not offer regular business. Moreover, the restrictions and obligations, coupled with regulatory requirements often make it cumbersome and counterproductive, not to mention expensive, to send stuff to friends or relatives. Many of the uncertainties and high costs are eliminated with ManyShip, which even supports international delivery.
Why would a traveler disclose his travel itinerary? ManyShip has to rely on the travelers to disclose their travel plans and routes in order to connect them with the cargo. Needless to say, disclosing such plans is certainly not recommended and hence it raises the question; why would someone willingly disclose?
ManyShip has ensured that travelers will disclose their plans, since they stand to earn from the ferrying of cargo. Though there is no fixed tariff, travelers can go to the site and make a post detailing their trip, how much extra space they have and how much they want to be paid to carry a package for someone.
People, who have cargo to dispatch, then have to search for the right traveler, send them a request and if accepted, can send their cargo. Travelers stand to earn money as well as rewards, apart from making new connections and friends.
Quite recently we covered another attempt at disrupting established market practices by TransferWise. ManyShip is offering similar services in the cargo shipment segment. Platforms like AirBNB have already proven that such innovations do work against the obvious factor of distrust. Do give the platform a chance and let us know your views.
