When it comes to high-volume Ecommerce fulfillment, automating for the best rate and closest fulfillment location to the end consumer can help not only save money, but also ensure the customer experience is improved.
Anyone that ships packages understands what rate shopping is and how they could save money by finding the cheapest way to ship a package to their customer. We all understand that saving money on your shipping rates can have a tremendous impact on your bottom line. So then why do most companies not utilize rate shopping. The most common complaint I hear is that either I do not have time to check rates against hundreds of different providers, or I am already receiving the best rates with my current carrier.
