Logistics firm Better Trucks has partnered with Shipium, a shipping platform for e-commerce retailers, brands and third-party logistics organizations.
The partnership will give Shipium customers access to Better Trucks’ connected delivery network. Combined, the two firms expect to make next-day and two-day delivery a regular option while reducing the costs associated with faster shipping outcomes.
Better Trucks is a regional, last-mile parcel carrier with a focus on rapid residential deliveries. The firm leverages an interconnected network which has been designed to drive faster delivery times, better end-to-end visibility into the lifecycle of each parcel and a more responsive, one-to-one customer service.
Shipium is an e-commerce shipping platform that was set up to help retailers solve the ‘Prime problem’ by modernizing their shipping software stack. According to the company, most customers transition from single-threading a national carrier to using six carriers, on average, in their first quarter of using Shipium.
Jason Murray, CEO of Shipium, commented, “There is no question that faster shipping options at a lower cost are now central to how modern operators plan out their network. They need modern carriers like Better Trucks to make that strategy a reality. We are excited to be the premier enterprise platform where shippers can get easier and faster access to Better Trucks’ services.
Andy Whiting, co-founder and CEO of Better Trucks, said, “Consumer expectations around delivery are unwavering, and e-commerce shippers need partners like Better Trucks to improve speed, accuracy and costs in order to meet those demands. But all too often, their shipping technology lets them down. They need a modern solution like Shipium to improve time-to-value and diversify carriers.”
