"We started using Zappy about 8 years ago. Because they offer a flexible solution – everything is done online – whenever we want to, we can choose a courier from multiple choices depending on the customer need and where the customer is. I’ve been very happy with their customer service. If things go wrong, and sometimes they do with couriers, they are very good at solving the issues and getting things right. I can recommend using Zappy, they aren’t just efficient but also very cost effective"

"Most valuable aspect of Zappy is the direct relationship with an account manager. Service is excellent and that is key –They push and get things resolved. When there’s an issue, they’re onto it and that helps ensure our customer is happy. Three words to describe Zappy: Excellent service. Good pricing. Approachable people"



“Swapped from another provider because of Zappy’s convenience: get shipping quotes, label printing etc. Going direct to couriers was a hassle. Zappy is much faster and more reliable. Excellent customer service – this is critical, they sort problems out immediately. Initial training on the system very helpful – but finds the process easy. I want to make my customers happy – their service helps that to happen. Three words to describe Zappy: Reliable. Fast.Friendly."
