US parcel delivery firm Better Trucks and shipping intelligence company Shipware have partnered to provide retailers and e-commerce companies with more regional options.
The partnership comes as national carriers announce price hikes heading into 2023. Better Trucks is a last-mile delivery carrier focused on next-day and two-day parcel shipping to residential customers in the US. Shipware provides parcel, LTL, 3PL and fulfillment spend-management solutions for volume shippers. Shipware helps to lower fulfillment costs by using data modeling and industry expertise to provide merchants with logistics consulting, helping them audit carrier invoices, analyze data and improve contracts with shipping providers.
Andy Whiting, co-founder and CEO of Better Trucks, said, “The traditional hub-and-spoke model of parcel shipping centralized around the big box truck has run its course. Shipware has built one of the most experienced teams in the industry backed by one of the most comprehensive data sets. We couldn’t be more excited to work more closely together to provide clients with deeper insights and better data that lead to faster, more reliable shipping.”
Michael Shine, strategic partnerships and channel account manager at Shipware, commented, “Since 2011, Shipware has proudly served as an advocate for volume shippers, helping them navigate the complex world of shipping and fulfillment. Our partnership with Better Trucks reaffirms our commitment to provide shippers with the absolute gold standard of logistics solutions. We trust our work together will elevate many retailers to the next level.”
