Grand Prix International and Floship Collaborate for Efficient Crowdfunding Fulfillment


A Collaboration Between the Two Companies Allows Ease of Fulfillment Leading to Fewer Delays and Cost Savings

[Springfield, MA], February 2, 2023 – Grand Prix International (GPI) and Floship have joined their collective expertise to provide toy and game companies a friction-free shipping process to crowdfunding backers.  The ability to ship products from Southeast Asia, where manufacturing occurs, to backers anywhere in the world saves both time and money.

GPI, a mainstay in the toy and game industry for the last 40 years brings their manufacturing and shipping expertise to join Floship, the premier leader of crowdfunding fulfillment, in a collaboration allowing the fulfillment of a campaign to initiate from the manufacturing country directly to the backer saving substantial time in the shipping process.  “As crowdfunding campaigns grew in popularity, GPI has long felt frustrated by the inefficiency of traditional crowdfunding fulfillment where goods exchange hands with multiple third parties before ultimately arriving on a backer’s doorstep,” said Mike Fisher, President of GPI.

“Working synchronically with GPI makes fulfillment planning transparent before the manufacturing even begins. Together, the specialist teams at GPI and Floship — alongside the client, can engage in collaborative discussions about the logistical and technical minutiae involved in achieving campaign deliverables, whilst ensuring the products get from the factory floor into fans’ hands as quickly and cost effectively as possible,” said Josh Tsui, CEO at Floship.

“Having a combined GPI x Floship team working to seamlessly transition a campaign through numerous logistics steps will save our clients so much time, not to mention ensure that the process is executed flawlessly since it’s in the hands of people that do this for a living and not someone trying to figure out the complicated process themselves for the first time. It’s a crucial step in managing a successful campaign.  We couldn’t be more excited for the relationship with Floship to get off the ground and continue to grow and thrive in the future,” said David Blanchard, VP of Business Development for GPI.
