“Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow," said William Pollard, an English clergyman.

Serial entrepreneurs Méhul Doshi and Manish Singh were already two startups old when they faced a fresh problem – the lack of transparency and timely information in the ocean freight industry. 


The duo realised that a new one-stop solution is the next step, which led to Shiplyst. They approached several freight companies with the idea of a simple platform for freight booking and shipment management, which received positive responses. 


So much so that one of the clients, Sharad Kumar, decided to close his freight forwarding business to join them full time as a co-founder. Here's how Shiplyst is dealing with the ocean freight industry's challenges.
