It’s been three weeks since our beta arrival, and now that we’ve got the lay of the land, we’re pleased to announce our official launch in the Windy City.

Check out a few highlights from our beta period:

  • We shipped a Samurai sword on our first day.
  • We’ve been all over the world, with shipments sent to Germany, Canada, India, Australia, Mexico, the UK, and Croatia.
  • We hung out at the Renegade Arts Festival and helped vendors like Vault Furniture ship right from their booth.

Chicago is the first Shyp city with a courier fleet composed entirely of W2 employees. Earlier this year we announced our decision to convert couriers in every city to W2 team members, and with our Chicago launch, we’ve implemented new training and scheduling procedures to improve operations and better support the team on the ground. We’re excited to roll out the same processes to cities nationwide and bring hundreds of new employees on board.
