Announcing New SKUs for Your Diverse Shipping Needs

New SKUs

Today we’re announcing some exciting upgrades to the ShipHawk product line.  We originally launched these offerings for two reasons: 1) to give enterprise customers an easy way to try our products out before purchasing and 2) to give small-to-midsized companies with lower complexity a way to access the magic of ShipHawk.  With today’s changes, that access now includes support for a wider range of services—parcel, large goods (LTL), home delivery as well as blanket wrap—in all SKUs, even our free starter product. We’ve also packaged a custom SKU for those of you looking to manage your current parcel and freight tariffs in a single place.
