What are the benefits of ShipHawk’s shipping API?

In the shipping world today, there are a lot of unknowns and an increasing lack of visibility. ShipHawk’s shipping API aims to remove the pain that stems from shipping and creates countless benefits for customers. The evolution of eCommerce has allowed inventories to become more diverse and caused customer expectations to rise, making distribution more challenging than ever.

You can leverage ShipHawk’s shipping API to bypass manual steps and ship with confidence.

Our rating engine is at the core of our API. Our tech goes out and compares shipping rates with over 200 carriers. From there, you have the power to control what rate responses to include or not.

Our carrier network includes multiple shipping avenues, from parcel and LTL, to home delivery and blanket wrap. And if you’d like to use your own negotiated rates with specific carriers, we allow you to do so, simply and seamlessly.

We also help to remove the guess work out of packing costs. We utilize our packaging optimization algorithm to provide an estimated packing cost to each rate. This feature helps save time and money by ensuring that products are packaged in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. The option of charging the end-customer for packing is your decision and easy to manage with available filters.

Our goal at ShipHawk is to remove the burdens and friction that currently exists in the shipping world. ShipHawk’s shipping API provides you with tools to streamline processes and optimize your customer’s shipping experience. With access to hundreds of carriers, fully landed rates, and the ShipHawk Intelligence Engine, our software gives you control over a process that has long been time consuming, costly and uncertain.
