Welcome to Shipp-It Inc!
This is our story.
How We Started
Prior to opening Shipp-it Inc. in 2017, our president and founder, Michael J Shipp, had been handling the packaging and special logistics for the 7 North American facilities of a tier 1 automotive manufacturer. As much of the shipping was for new projects, trial shipments, equipment moves, or situations where the normal supply chain had been disrupted; it was challenging to find suitable logistics service providers. Communication was often ineffective and frequently the logistics companies either didn’t understand his needs, were ill-equipped to handle them or didn’t care about them. As a customer, this was very troubling to him, and it was something that stuck with him when he started Shipp-it Inc.
To provide excellent customer service by understanding and meeting the customer’s needs and to exceed the customer’s expectations through clear, effective communication and timely service.

Michael J. Shipp
Michael served in the United States Marine Corps. from 1987 to 1995 and participated in the liberation of Kuwait while deployed with 3rd Battalion 6th Marines.
After returning to civilian life, he worked in numerous fields including the oil field, intermodal freight, aggregates, corrections, and sales. In 2004 he earned a degree in computer science and went on to work as an operations analyst for a gaming/entertainment company (more commonly known as a casino).
In 2008 he took a position as a planner and analyst for a major 3PL and distribution company. In 2012 he took a corporate position with a tier 1 automotive supplier where he managed the packaging and special logistics for that company’s 7 North American facilities.
While working there he became disenchanted with the inability of freight service providers to understand and meet the logistics needs of his company.
This, in part, was his inspiration for creating Shipp-it Inc in 2017. Since then, he has grown the company by an average of more than 100% each year in operation.
