ShipWorks, a software for high performance, high-volume shipping management, has enhanced its Best Rate tool, a tool for comparing and shopping shipping rates across multiple carriers, accounts, and services.
The ShipWorks Best Rate tool debuted in 2015, and it’s features include the the ability to:
Automatically display rates and time in transit across multiple carriers, and for the services customers select.
Shop rates using automatically populated shipping settings, such as dimensions and package weights based on shipping profiles and shipping rules.
Shop rates for a specific service level (number of days in transit).
The ability to add multiple accounts for each carrier. Example – If a user has two UPS, two FedEx, and three USPS accounts, they can search all of those to see which one offers the best rate and/or time in transit.
The ability for users to uncheck specific services within each carrier. This simplifies options while rate shopping to show only the services that apply to the user.
“ShipWorks is committed to giving our customers the tools they need for growth and success, and our Best Rate tool is a great example of that,” said Dominic Lozano, General Manager of ShipWorks. “Our Best Rate tool has been unrivaled since its launch, but continuous improvement is in our DNA. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate. Enhancements like these provide our customers customized shipping options that allow them to efficiently select the best shipping option for each of their packages, even as carriers and rates change.”
