The benefits of Fleetbase Storefront

Shiv Thakker

Fleetbase is a technology company that provides API-first solutions for developing logistical and on-demand apps. The company was founded in 2018 by co-founder Ron, who was working as a freelancer tasked with creating logistical apps for clients. After realizing the limitations of cookie cutter white label solutions, Ron developed Fleetbase, an API-first solution for developing logistical and on-demand apps.

Fleetbase's first proof of concept was a cargo container marketplace in Malaysia, which received sponsorship from the ministry of transportation and is still in operation today. The successful execution of the cargo container marketplace with Fleetbase proved the platform's capabilities and laid the groundwork for the company's expansion into other areas of logistics and on-demand services.

Fleetbase Storefront

Now, after three years of working in the logistics industry and iterating on the Fleetbase platform, the company has introduced Storefront, a new open source app powered by Fleetbase. Storefront is designed to help businesses quickly and easily build, publish, and launch their own on-demand shopping app or multi-vendor marketplace.

Whether you're a small business just getting started or a large corporation looking to expand your digital presence, Fleetbase Storefront App provides a range of benefits that can help you achieve your goals.
