SmartKargo, Shipium partner to make 2-day package delivery available to all
When partnered, progressive carriers like SmartKargo and modern technology solutions like Shipium help reduce shipping costs by around 12% on average and can be as high as 25% when retailers previously relied on a single carrier
SmartKargo, a leader in providing technology and logistics solutions to airlines globally announced a partnership with Shipium, the preferred shipping platform for e-commerce retailers.
SmartKargo partners with airlines to enable an alternate delivery network to established carriers like FedEx. The solution provides a reliable 2-day small package transportation option for e-commerce companies and small package shippers.
SmartKargo's unique partnership with a major US domestic airline enables shippers to offer great service with transparent pricing. Providing over 800 flights daily shippers across the US can move packages coast-to-coast in 2 days with no need to utilize multiple distribution centers in many instances. SmartKargo's SaaS solution is now seamlessly integrated with Shipium, enabling retailers to provide fast air delivery of small packages to their customers by utilizing air transportation for the middle mile—increasing margins and meeting consumer expectations for 2-day delivery times.
Shipium solves the retailer's challenge of quickly adding new carriers for e-commerce delivery. It's an afternoon activity for retailers to add a new carrier, such as SmartKargo, to their fulfillment network once Shipium is integrated into all warehouses. High-volume retailers typically turn to Shipium when fast-moving business objectives make existing parcel shipping software solutions an anchor to change. Shipium's pre-integrated carrier network, which now includes SmartKargo, is available to all customers for free.
When partnered, progressive carriers like SmartKargo and modern technology solutions like Shipium help reduce shipping costs by around 12% on average and can be as high as 25% when retailers previously relied on a single carrier.
Chris Grey, VP of Business Development at SmartKargo said "Shipium is a perfect fit for our innovative solution combining fast delivery with transparent pricing. Both companies know that technology is the backbone for providing the fastest and most cost-effective e-commerce delivery options for forward-thinking retailers today."
Jason Murray, CEO at Shipium, said "SmartKargo is a fellow innovator, with a unique value proposition in the e-commerce delivery market, and we are pleased to partner with them to provide our retailers a high-value alternative delivery network. We can't deliver the differentiated outcomes we offer without partners like SmartKargo."
