Shipping in e-commerce is a major pain point


Market is fragmented
Each carrier has different national, regional, overnight or same-day services, and the most
optimal choice often is a smart multi-carrier strategy. There is no optimization layer across
different providers. Optimization is done manually.

Pricing are not transparent


Rate charts are complex, because they depend on at least 5 dimensions. Discounts are only
available at scale. Negotiating discounts takes time and industry knowledge.

APIs are complicated or non-existent


Automated interfaces are not developer-friendly. Documentations are hundreds of pages
long and require shipping knowledge.

Now is the time to solve it


Online payments has been tackled by PayPal and Stripe.
Shipping is the step after payments.
Amazon has changed the shipping game.
Same day delivery is becoming more common
More non-traditional shipping providers are emerging
Amazon Prime paid subscribers grow 53% yoy

E-commerce platforms have become mainstream.


Shopify and Etsy IPOs in 2015
Shopify grew 10x in 3 years (now +150,000 merchants), Etsy grew 12x in 6 years (now
1.4M merchants)

Data network effect: the more packages we ship the more accurately we can predict
metrics relevant to shipping, such as transit times, and the better recommendations we
can give for additional opportunities.
Were able to assemble our own virtual carrier network by combining shipping providers.

The benefit of using multi-providers


If merchants sell a variety of different items with different dimensions optimizing
between shipping providers provides further saving opportunities.
