Lab logistics has been a major player in the e-commerce space for a long time, and now it has a new client: a small and startup-focused shipping company.
Lablogistics’ first product is a shipping box, designed to be delivered by courier to the warehouse at your request.
The box’s lid is lined with a thin sheet of fabric, which acts as a protective barrier and prevents the box from being damaged.
LabLogistics uses a small amount of fabric for each delivery, and it’s this protective layer that protects the box during transit.
You can see in the video above that the box is packed and secured with Velcro.
Lablab’s CEO, Adam Epperson, told The Huffington 9 that the project came to fruition after two weeks of work.
“The team that came together and built this thing really loved it,” Eppenson said.
“They were very excited about it.”
Lablab, which Eppersen said will be shipping in the next few weeks, was originally created as a way to solve the problems with shipping box delivery in a world where people are increasingly relying on courier services.
“In the past, there was a lot of confusion about the difference between the shipping boxes and the courier boxes, so we thought it would be cool to provide a solution that could actually make it easier to make the correct decision for your business,” Eipperson said.
LabLab is a product of the Lablab Lablab startup accelerator program.
The company hopes to raise $50,000 to help it develop the product and eventually create an entire factory to manufacture the product.
In the meantime, you can get a glimpse of the lab lab in action in this video.
It’s been a few months since the LabLab lab went live, and the team says the process is going smoothly.
In addition to being able to get the finished product on the market, the Lab Lablab team has also created a Facebook group for customers and other LabLab stakeholders to discuss the project.
For the company’s next step, the team is looking to raise another $25,000 in funding.
“We’re still in a very early stage of production, but we’re already getting to the point where we can begin mass production,” Eppson said.
So, if you’re looking to start a shipping company, and you need a lab, you should definitely get in touch with Lablab.
The next step will be a crowdfunding campaign to fund the manufacturing of the product itself.
