Nassau, New Providence - MrShipIt.com, the shipping company revolutionising the freight forwarding industry in the Bahamas, officially opened its doors on September 1st. To commemorate their Rosetta Street store opening, the company wanted to support another major event happening at the same time: the first day of the school year. MrShipIt.com partnered with Ortland H. Bodie of Real Talk 94.9 FM to donate back-to-school packages to needy students of Carmichael Primary and Ridgeland Park Primary. Jurelle Nairn, Managing Director of MrShipIt.com, explained, “Mr. Bodie made it possible to connect directly with those who truly need items, and MrShipIt.com was excited to help supply the essentials to help our youths succeed.”

The MrShipIt.com team hand-packed over 50 school bags with the basic supplies kids need to kick off the school year, including water bottles, pencils, notebooks and rulers. “To continue the celebration,” Nairn continued, “we are extending a shipping rate of $1.30 per pound to our future customers when they sign up on www.mrshipit.com.” Currently the shipping industry in the Bahamas is booming. There are numerous  Bahamian freight forwarders to date offering an average shipping rate of $1.90 for identical services such as purchasing assistance, freight forwarding and US address capabilities.

MrShipIt.com is breaking the mold by offering these traditional services at a lower rate of $1.30 per pound plus innovative services such as the “SUPER” Gift Registry and Family Island Forwarding. Jurelle expressed " We know there is a demand because in less than 7days of launching Mr Ship It.com received over 1,000 Facebook fans but most importantly over 1,000 website Sign-ups begging for better shipping alternatives!' The company is excited for their inaugural flight slated for mid-September.
