How does your shipping strategy stack up against your competition?
In 2017, if you don’t have a good shipping strategy, competitors will eat your lunch. Amazon continues to invest in their fulfillment strategy and it is crushing its rivals. Delivery expectations are going up, but cost control is more important than ever. Where do you start? Can you leverage shipping automation to improve your ability to scale? There are so many factors to consider such as pricing strategy, fulfillment locations, software and technology, personnel, customer experience, and more.
To determine how you stack up in key strategic areas, use our simple calculator that diagnoses your process maturity and identifies the key areas where you can improve.

As technology continues to advance, it becomes more and more integrated into our everyday lives. With these changing times, retailers will need to start taking a much more holistic view, as opposed to creating strategies separately for each medium. This will allow you to provide a consistent brand experience, appealing to customers across all locations and devices.
While one tends to think of a shipment as a single transaction, in reality it usually consists of multiple events—first mile, line-haul, final mile and consolidation points. These pieces get even more complex when the item being shipped is a couch or a table that’s traveling in a model other than parcel. For the buyer, the final mile is the most important part of the trip, and the piece they are most likely to associate with your brand. After all, this is what gets the shipment to his or her home.
Over the last six months we’ve talked with many of our customers and prospects about their shipping needs. The most common feedback we heard was that they wanted the power of the ShipHawk Platform in the ‘plug-and-play’ architecture of their Shopify or Magento storefront.
Today, you can have just that. We’re excited to announce our new ShipHawk Magento Extension and ShipHawk Shopify App. Both give retailers access to powerful back-end automation and an integrated front-end experience, with minimal-to-no development effort.
The ShipHawk team is excited to be attending Retail’s Digital Summit 2016! This digital commerce showcase is going to be held on September 26-28 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.
