Creating new common sense through ideas and execution

The limits and hurdles for international transactions are high and their cost and time has not been optimized. Around the world it is rare to receive a product from another country quickly. Even EMS takes a few days and can often take over a month. Of course, there are also many services and products that do not ship overseas. If travelers carry things products could arrive the same day or the next. We could solve the distribution problem through the demand for souvenirs. We could accelerate the exchange between countries. These thoughts led us to start this enterprise.
