What is a Multi-Carrier Software Provider?

Multi-Carrier Software Providers

help to make shipping efficient by planning and executing shipment deliveries across the supply chain. With one source to manage all shipping vendors, users can build custom rules based on rates and time in transit; helping to reduce costs and offering a better customer experience.  

We are proud of our partnerships with the most popular Multi-Carrier Software Providers , who support certified OnTrac Shipping Modules. For a complete list of the OnTrac supported shipping modules please visit http://www.ontrac.com/onlineShipMultiShip.asp.

If you are not currently utilizing a Multi-Carrier Software we encourage you to investigate your options. The holidays are just around the corner, adding in a shipping software solution NOW will make peak season easier to manage.  

OnTrac Vice President of Business Development Mark Magill noted that guaranteed next-day delivery at Ground rates to Zone 4 destinations that are 500-600 miles from your distribution center means that next peak season, when Christmas is on a Thursday, a regional parcel carrier can pick your shipments up on Tuesday December 23 and deliver them on Christmas Eve, just as they do the other 249 shipping days of the year.

This will happen even if the pick-up point is in Boston and your customer is located in Washington, DC. In fact, to enhance their service offering (and your customer experience), some large regional parcel carriers are even providing Sunday (Ground) pickups with Monday delivery!

This will be especially helpful in years when there are fewer shipping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (Keep in mind that in 2013, there were 17 shipping days in that time period and this year there will still only be 18).

It is time to start planning for the upcoming holiday season. By adding Regional Carriers and a Multi-Carrier Software solution to your operation, efficiencies will be improved and cost will be reduced.
