ProShip, Inc., the most trusted global provider of automated multi-carrier shipping software, announced today that the largest privately owned arts-and-crafts retailer in the world has chosen ProShip as its multi-carrier shipping solution. The solution is scheduled to be implemented in the company’s distribution center to help manage a year-over-year doubling in e-commerce parcel volume.
To simplify carrier compliance and connectivity, ProShip will be replacing a previously in-house managed carrier strategy. This supports the Top 100 NRF-ranked retailer’s plan to scale from one to more than six carriers, comprised of both national and regional carriers. The company will also gain advanced rate shopping capabilities along with optimized business rule management, address validation and parcel tracking visibility.
The arts-and-crafts retailer is committed to offering their customers with exceptional selection and value and zeroed in on enhancing the supply chain capabilities within their distribution department to continue to do so. The addition of ProShip will give them the necessary technology and tools to optimize transportation spend while improving the customer experience with a mix of carrier services.
“This year, more than ever, it’s imperative for shippers to increase capacity, ease transportation costs and provide faster delivery times,” said Bill Schroeder, president of ProShip. “It’s an honor to be recognized by a retailer who believes in our ability to provide them that value.”
This privately held retailer plans to align their ProShip multi-carrier shipping software go-live with other strategic e-commerce projects in order to fully capture optimal results. With updated parcel technology and an optimized supply chain, the arts-and-crafts retailer will continue to be a fierce competitor to watch out for.
