Once upon a time...
WebShip is part of a family business (Pegatex NV) with years of experience in wholesale and warehouse management. Started in 1986 as a wholesaler in terry toweling, it was joined in 2011 by online marketing activities led by the second generation. In 2013, the terry toweling activities were discontinued and focused on storage and order picking for third parties.
Manager Yuri Hellyn has chosen resolutely for the online strategy. In addition to developing and managing websites and online stores, we provide logistics services a whole host of online retail websites. The company also has a couple of its own online stores. “Those internal online stores are an important tool for our company” says Yuri Hellyn “with the knowledge we gather there we can guide our customers better day after day in their online project”.
The activities within WebShip focus on start-ups as well as SMEs active in a niche market. We always try to grow along with the demands of our clients. Flexible and dynamic entrepreneurship are therefore two central concepts within our company.
