ShipStation has announced that UPS is live on its carrier services platform, giving small and medium-sized businesses in the UK access to UPS’s domestic and international shipping services at discounted rates.
The collaboration aims to make it easier for merchants to scale their delivery operations, save on shipping costs and grow their revenue.
“At a time when it’s more important than ever for small and medium-sized businesses to save on costs, we’re delighted to be expanding our relationship with UPS to the UK market.” said Mike Hayers, general manager Europe at ShipStation.
“Businesses on our platform can directly access UPS’s affordable rates on our carrier services platform to ship with the utmost ease to wherever they need to in the world. By removing the complexities and inflexibilities often associated with delivery management and instead giving greater choice and control when it comes to shipping, we’re enabling our merchants to focus more on the most essential part of their business, the end-consumer.”
Designed to be quick and easy to set up, the integration gives merchants more choice and transparency when it comes to shipping. Merchants will also have the option to drop off at a growing network of nearly 35,000 UPS Access Point locations across Europe for greater convenience and control over their deliveries. With no volume commitments, all merchants with a ShipStation account can add and access UPS as they streamline their delivery operations.
“Small and medium-sized businesses are the heart of the global economy, and we’re always looking for ways to make e-commerce easier for them – especially when it comes to cross-border trade,” added Dana Nino, vice-president of marketing at UPS.
“We’re excited to work with ShipStation to bring our shipping services to more UK businesses. Having easy access to UPS’s flexible, reliable shipping options at discounted rates will help them achieve their business goals and thrive in the world of global ecommerce.”
