We've built an API that makes shipping cheap and easy for e-commerce stores. We make shipping cheap by aggregating the shipping volume of our customers and, thus, getting steep discounts from shipping carriers, which we pass on directly to our small business customers. At the moment our rates are up to 80% off retail prices. We make shipping easy by providing one API to connect online stores to all relevant carriers. Our algorithm optimizes package allocation across all available shipping providers. In short: We give mid-sized e-commerce stores the shipping backend of Amazon - only simpler. The shipping market related to e-commerce is worth $360 billion in the US and in Western Europe. Shipping is a huge pain point for e-commerce stores. Prices are high and opaque, finding the right shipping provider is difficult, negotiating discounts with them is even harder, and working together with more than one gets messy. We make shipping hassle-free!
