Multi-Carrier eCommerce all with one partner?

Our Solution : Firstmile’s Xparcel

What if you had a company that could shop each of your packages across all carriers along with their various service levels and then provide the right label to your shipping software for each order?  How about a company that could pick up all of those packages regardless of how many different carriers were used each day, run it through sort operations and linehaul it into the right carrier network each day?

FirstMile is just that company. We’ve been helping ecommerce businesses of all sizes become more strategic in their carrier selection process in order to reduce shipping costs, save time, and provide the best possible experience for every customer.  Our proprietary technology does all of the heavy lifting behind the scenes, every label request goes through a query of national, regional and local parcel and mail carriers, including First Class and Priority Mail in order to find the best carrier for the job.

FirstMile is a multi-carrier e-commerce parcel carrier. Our unique approach allows small, medium and even large ecommerce shippers to get the best combination of price and service across a wide range of USPS workshare and parcel carrier partners–including our own network. We do this all with one connection to our API , one pickup via our FirstMile owned and operated vehicles, one invoice and one point of contact. We even handle claims.

Need 5 day or less service? No Problem. Need 2-4 day service? No Problem. Simply need the lowest priced parcel carrier service possible for every package? No Problem.

If you are tired of the headaches from trying to navigate the ecommerce shipping labyrinth, let FirstMile help.

Oh, and our systems integrate seamlessly into common shipping platforms like ShipStation, Order Cup, ShipRush, Ship Hero, and many more
