It’s 2018. eCommerce is in full swing and the marketplace is hotter than ever. It seems everywhere you look, there’s another tool available for managing your SEO, your metrics or your parcel freight. Shouldn’t there be a simplified way to manage your LTL freight by now? Here at Kuehne+Nagel LTL+, we couldn’t agree
more and that is why we’re excited to have joined forces with ShipperHQ to provide a solution. Before we get into how our partnership can revolutionize your B2B and B2C businesses, we thought we’d share a little about who we are and how we found ourselves immersed in the dynamic world of eCommerce.
For over 30 years, we have focused on simplifying the transportation process and in fact, we were the first of our kind. Ever since, we’ve been building a team of experts in all aspects of freight management; Carrier and customer relationships, accounting and administration and of course, technology. Though our name has changed over time, we never lost sight of our mission, which is to equip our clients with tools that let them put their resources into scaling their business instead of just maintaining it.
There’s a lot of talk out there about the logistics industry and how many companies have some catching up to do when it comes to doing business in the eCommerce space. We have always been ahead of the curve thanks to our powerhouse technology experts and agile team of logistics specialists. Today, we have the unique ability to simplify API and EDI carrier connectivity to allow users one point of access to a vast network of quality carriers, at highly competitive rates.
Ok, so what does that actually mean?
It means saying goodbye to paying for multiple connections, goodbye to hours spent reconciling hundreds of individual invoices and goodbye to paying more than you need to for your large freight. By linking up with ShipperHQ’s top-notch shipping management system, shoppers can now enjoy the same fluid checkout experience they’re used to, even on large and oversized purchases. Isn’t that the way it should be?
Why should the bulky or just plain heavy items be abandoned in the shopping cart, simply because no one could optimize those supply chains?
Last year, the ShipperHQ team published an insightful blog that discussed how to boost conversion rates. It stated that a staggering 28% of cart abandonment came from unexpected shipping costs. By utilizing state of the art shipping software and providing customers with reliable rate transparency, merchants can avoid dropoff at checkout for larger items. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with ShipperHQ on this venture, providing eCommerce equality for all types of freight!
