D-Backs Bring Back History With the OnTrac Bullpen Cart

Posted on Mar 16, 2018 12:45:19 PM

At the start of the 2018 Major League Baseball season, the Arizona Diamondbacks will bring back a piece of baseball lore, the bullpen cart. As a celebration of the team’s 20th anniversary season, they have teamed up with OnTrac to transport relief pitchers into the game from both bullpens at Chase Field.

“We have been working on this idea for several years and there’s no more appropriate time to bring back the bullpen cart than this season, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary,” said D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall. “Fans of baseball in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s and even the 90s enjoyed watching their favorite players emerge from the bullpen in various vehicles and we’re excited for this special delivery to come to Chase Field.”

“It gives me great pride to see the OnTrac brand on the bullpen carts for the D-backs,” said OnTrac President Rob Humphrey. “Our company is built around delivering exceptional service and exceeding our customer’s expectations. I am confident that the OnTrac bullpen carts will continue this high level of service when delivering D-backs pitchers to the games.”

A Sound Shipping Strategy and a Dependable Partner Can Set You Up for Success

Posted on Jan 11, 2018 10:03:25 AM

Today’s consumers choose who to buy from based on their overall customer experience. As an eCommerce company, having the lowest price or best product no longer guarantees a sale. Consumers thoroughly research and compare a variety of products, retailers, reviews, shipping services and delivery options before they buy. 

Strategy and Partner_PHOTO.png

Many eCommerce store owners either dismiss shipping as unimportant, don’t spend enough time thinking through their strategy, or willfully avoid it altogether due to its complexity. Yet, without a good shipping strategy, you could end up with an unprofitable business. Even once you have a good strategy, choosing the wrong shipping partner could affect you negatively in a number of ways.

According to an eCommerce survey by MetaPack, 96% of shoppers said a positive delivery experience would encourage them to shop with a retailer again. In addition, over half (59%) of consumers have not completed an order because delivery was too expensive, and 86% of the same shoppers want a fast delivery.

Selecting a sound shipping strategy and a dependable partner can improve your business. Incorporating a regional carrier into your existing shipping workflow can save you time and money, which is exactly what consumers are looking at retailers for.

A Third Party Logistics Company, Cerasis, refers to regional carriers in a recent article as “package delivery companies that are usually more personal, flexible, and responsive than national carriers and offer shipping advantages within a targeted geographic area.”

Regional carriers, like OnTrac, can oftentimes offer more flexible and competitive options, which address specific customer needs that the National Carriers might not be able to accommodate. Also, with lower operating costs and the shipping advantages of targeting a specific geographic region, regional carriers can pass that savings on to you.

Additionally Cerasis includes that these savings can add up to as much as 10% to 40% lower than the base rates of the National Carriers. Also, with lower fees and fewer surcharges than National Carriers, OnTrac can boost your bottom line.

OnTrac Shipments are Trackable on eBay

Posted on Jan 12, 2016 9:00:00 AM

OnTrac and eBay have teamed up to provide OnTrac tracking information to all eBay customers. The addition of OnTrac to eBay’s list of carriers was in response to sellers requesting to use OnTrac to ship their products over other shipping services.

OnTrac’s tracking number is now integrated within eBay’s tracking system, which will help sellers meet their on-time shipping metric and eBay Top Rated seller requirements by having tracking uploaded every time they ship. Sellers can enter the information the same way as they would for USPS, UPS or FedEx services. For buyers, they receive an automated email with the tracking number and a delivery update through ‘My eBay’ to make the purchasing process as smooth as possible.

“We’re excited about adding OnTrac as a reliable shipping solution to the eBay marketplace,” says eBay Global Delivery Experience and Local Vice President Carl Gish. “The integration of their service will greatly benefit eBay customers and help further eBay’s efforts to create frictionless commerce experiences.”
