“A rare calendar confluence means that more customers are shopping online for last-minute gifts. Meanwhile, e-commerce startups need help managing their last-minute shipments.”
“The stereotypical entrepreneur is a twenty-something kid with a great idea and a knack for fundraising. But, more often than not, the real entrepreneur is a mom or a dad with a mortgage, a lonely spouse and a house full of toddlers who think of daddy as a “treat” because he’s not around that much, and when he is, he’s working.”
“Shipping intelligence provider ShipHawk is helping online retailers stay competitive by launching a new suite of shipping solutions, including a free parcel-only product as well as solutions that support parcel, freight and home delivery for retailers of all sizes.”
“Let’s face it, shipping is a part of the online commerce process most retailers would prefer to ignore. That’s why most don’t spend nearly enough time strategizing about how to deliver when it comes to delivery. This often results in the use of tactics like free shipping or free returns that can eat away at profit margins and ultimately hurt business.”
“The most expensive component of online transactions is the actual cost of the goods sold. Number two? Shipping—the cost of getting the product from warehouse to consumer. And beyond the cost, it is a key component of the buying experience. No wonder shipping has gone from back-office afterthought to boardroom hot-button.”
“ShipHawk has launched a new suite of solutions which it says will “address the changing needs of retailers”. These include a free parcel-only product for smaller retailers. ShipHawk said that its new platform “provides instant price comparisons in the shopping cart, customer-facing order tracking, full back-end automation, and aggregated data and insights across all shipping types—parcel, freight, and home delivery.”

“Customer expectations for shipping are changing faster than ever. With the advent of Amazon Prime, accurate delivery timeslots and detailed tracking information are becoming the norm for multichannel retailers of all sizes.”
“The incredible growth of e-commerce coupled with growing consumer demand for shipping flexibility and convenience have given rise to a plethora of last-mile delivery options that retailers can use to help move goods from point A to point B quickly and effectively. Uber recently launched a pilot version of its merchant delivery offering calledUberRUSH, joining startups like Sidecar, Postmates and Deliv in responding to this demand from consumers, and in turn retailers, for flexible and convenient last-mile delivery options.”
“ShipHawk, the leading provider of shipping technology and intelligence, announced today the appointment of George Chapman as Vice President of Engineering. Mr. Chapman join the ShipHawk team as the company continues to expand its footprint in the United States and transform the shipping experience.”
“When Walmart’s stock plunged 10% in a day last month after warning its earnings next fiscal year will fall, much of the blame went to investments to fix up old supercenters and wage increases for workers. But what also played a role was a $1.1 billion investment in e-commerce, largely to compete against Amazon.”
“Started a half century ago, Santa Barbara’s original tech scene was quiet by design: Places like Delco and General Research set up shop near the airport in Goleta, working on top-secret defense projects for the government. That industry still thrives in whispered ways, with companies like Raytheon, Santa Barbara Focalplane (a division of Lockheed Martin), and Tecolote employing hundreds in various research and development capacities.”
“Robots, autonomous vehicles, and other fancy hardware like drones are the cool new toys in logistics. Although logistics and transportation is one of the largest markets on the planet, the relative lack of innovation in the sector is surprising.”
“Furniture retailers are always searching for ways to improve their top line revenue and transaction margins. The three main levers at their disposal—price, cost of goods, and shipping cost—can combine to either make or break the profitability of each transaction.”
“The online path to purchase has come a long way since the first digital retailers opened up shop, but there are still plenty of gaps in the process for both customers and merchants. However, just as on-demand delivery services are starting to combat brick-and-mortar retailers’ traditionally faster fulfillment timetables, some merchants have gone all in to address another bane of online sales: product returns.”
“Retailers who make returns cheap and easy are giving consumers an intangible that they value: the elimination of a layer of risk in completing their online purchase.”
“Ecommerce businesses tend to focus primarily on selling—attracting customers, identifying the products most likely to sell—and that’s perfectly understandable. But for many customers, shipping cost plays a deciding factor.”
“The tumble of omnichannel options these days often means that retailers don’t really have a good handle on what deliveries are costing them, says Jeremy Bodenhamer, CEO of logistics automation company ShipHawk. But data could help with that, he told Retail Dive.”
“The [Con-Way Inc.] acquisition could give XPO more power over pricing, which could translate to higher prices for shippers, particularly if it sparks more consolidation in the transportation industry, said Jeremy Bodenhamer, CEO of ShipHawk. ”
“Jeremy Bodenhamer, co-founder and CEO of e-commerce shipping system provider ShipHawk, believes shipping success is all about fulfilling customer expectations.”
“ShipHawk makes sure that growing your business does not have to cost that much in terms of shipments and logistics. You need to sell more products, which means there is more to ship. ”
“[There is a] reported $4 trillion worth of merchandise left abandoned in online shopping carts in 2015 alone… More than half of that figure, however, has nothing to do with the consumer’s desire for the product(s) initially placed in the cart. It has to do with the cost of shipping.”
“E-commerce retailers have lured shoppers with shipping deals that have now become an expectation. [S]hipping costs are being paid for by consumers—even if it’s not a line item in their online shopping cart.”
“Whether this diverse approach is actually cheaper may not be adequately known by the retailers under pressure to get their goods to their online customers quickly, says Jeremy Bodenhamer, CEO of logistics automation company ShipHawk. ”
“The vision and concept are slightly different things. When you go online to make a purchase, there are two transactions that have to occur.”
“Jeremy Bondenhamer of the ShipHawk logistics automation company warned that the acquisition could be viewed as a power play by UPS into the markets outside of parcel delivery, where it and one other company, FedEx, dominate. ”
“The trouble with retailers’ current attitude toward shipping is that they’re not accurately calculating how much their policies are costing them, says Jeremy Bodenhamer, CEO of logistics automation company ShipHawk.”
“Consumers might treat the flying machines like modern-day storks, but the risks that drones introduce to our skies outweigh their conveniences.”
“Sub optimal packaging leads to wasted space, extra weight, more fuel consumption, more pollutants and general inefficiencies all round.”
“Despite having brick-and-mortar stores all over the U.S., the company has thus far failed to take advantage of its sprawl by combining the benefits of ubiquitous storefronts and a strong online e-commerce presence to make the shopping and delivery processes better for customers.”
“Shipping is arguably the make-or-break portion of an online sale, according to Jeremy Bodenhamer…”
“Struggling with when to turn to an outside logistics firm? These founders have adice on making that leap.”
“The logistics business is not easy on the startups. It’s regulated. It’s hardware-driven (ships, rail, trucks, air). And there’s a reluctancy among the big players to change their business models.”
“This Silicon Valley mantra for quick iteration has acquired a new and an even more hurried meaning in recent times. The media industry was one of the first to disaggregate, and now engineers from the Valley have mounted similar attacks on other industries.”
“Are shipping & logistics titans like FedEx and UPS being unbundled by startups? Drawing inspiration from Andrew Parker & David Haber’s Disaggregation of Craigslist (both of Spark Capital), as well as the Disaggregation of a Bank by Tom Loverro (RRE) and Alexander Pease (Union Square Ventures), we looked at today’s US startups targeting shipping and logistics companies to visualize the Unbundling of FedEx.”
“The variables and hassles involved in shipping a package are finally being addressed. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandma shipping an antique or the logistics pro at Walmart,” says Jeremy Bodenhamer, CEO of ShipHawk.”
“As a greater number of auction providers make the move to showcase items online, shipping has taken on a greater role in audience reach, conversion rates and platform limitations. ”
“ShipHawk, the online startup known for their technologically savvy shipping solutions, announced today their new tracking and notification API, feeding users instant updates on current shipments. The new API eliminates confusion by making real-time status updates readily accessible.”
“When shipping small items, it’s no problem to use services like FedEx or UPS, but what if you have a large, heavy, or unusually shaped item? When you have an item that doesn’t easily fit in a box, you need to work with specialized carriers, but they generally aren’t easy to find or very transparent with their pricing.”
