IRCE, the world’s largest e-commerce event, will analyze the social, mobile, global, personal, interactive and managerial changes that e-Commerce players are bringing to the new retail economy. This is a major educational event that offers online retailing and wholesaling professionals and consumer marketers the insights and analysis they need to give their businesses a competitive advantage in this expanded world of possibilities.

OnTrac Ground reaches more ground destinations in the 8 Western United States next day, giving Internet Retailers greater flexibility to use shipping as a promotional tool or profit center.  Shippers also benefit from lower fees and fewer surcharges, which represent a significant savings over national carriers.

"Free shipping is not enough,” said Mark Magill, Director of Business Development at OnTrac.  “In an industry where free shipping has come to be expected, online retailers must play to the beat of a generation that not only wants things faster, but for a cheaper price. Regional carriers are the perfect solution. With faster transit times and fewer fees than national delivery companies, regional carriers can often save time and money."

From its Distribution Center in Reno, NV, OnTrac is able to reach every ZIP Code in the state of California and the major metropolitan areas of Arizona, Nevada and Utah overnight, with 2-day service to Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Idaho.

OnTrac will be showcasing its faster, more affordable Ground delivery service in booth #1708-1710 and raffling off a Kindle to those who visit its booth.

Remember when it used to take forever to get your online orders delivered? The rules are changing, as we’re seeing with Amazon’s newly acquired subsidiaries. Diapers.com, Soap.com, and Wag.com all offer free 2-day shipping with orders of $49 or more. How is this possible? Executive Vice President of Operations Scott Hilton talks about the technological advances in the video below. Another reason it’s affordable? They use OnTrac.

OnTrac offers next-day shipping for exceptionally low rates in the Western seven states. In the case of these three companies, OnTrac can ship next day to a majority of its service area from their warehouse in Reno, NV.
