In the modern marketplace, most consumers utilize online shopping to fulfill their needs. Logistics teams work with leading brands and eCommerce companies to fulfill shipping deadlines in a timely manner.
However, not all logistics companies are dedicated to excellent customer service. These companies fail to use an advanced shipping platform to help them pack faster, ship smarter, and save money.
Here’s a closer look at why we rely heavily on shipping platforms and how our efforts help the brands we work with ship with more precision than their competitors.
The Right Shipping Platform can Increase and Sustain Your Current Customer Base
In a world controlled by Prime shipping estimates, current customers have expectations for the speed in which their items are shipped. With customer’s demands for quick efficient deliveries, you’ll need a shipping platform that can help you keep current customers and increase your reputation amongst potential customers.
At GFS Logistics, we’ve partnered with DesktopShipper as our shipping platform to help guarantee the expedient delivery of all products that flow through our warehouse.
A Shipping Platform Saves Your Team Money
If you want to have the best shipping rates in your industry, your logistics company needs to have an excellent shipping platform on its side. Based on the quantity of your shipment and where the shipment is headed, shipping costs can quickly become confusing and expensive.
Shipping platforms offer your logistics team the opportunity to ship smarter by:
- Offering you the best carriers for your needs
- Presenting you with a variety of shipping rates that allow you to make the most cost-effective choice for your customers
When your brand is able to save money on shipping costs, consumers take note and will continue to return to you for satisfying business practices.
Shipping Platforms Come API-Ready
API’s are essential for the success of your supply chain! They are the veins that connect a brand’s customer on a site to a warehouse carrying a product that gets purchased.
APIs help optimize deliveries, streamline your total supply chain process, and allow you to keep tabs on where your products are at all times.
APIs can be complex to integrate within your warehouse. However, most shipping platforms on the market come with a built-in API capability that allows a logistics company to take advantage of API benefits and share the wealth with brands and consumers alike.
International Shipping Capabilities
Online shopping has made international shipping capabilities a “must-have” for any eCommerce brand. With a shipping platform integrated within your logistics team’s processes, international shipping becomes manageable, affordable, and above all, reliable.
