The Fulfillment Management Platform for Ecommerce Retail

Shipium coordinates previously disconnected supply chain steps to help retailers offer fast, free, and on-time shipping.

The Prime Problem

Your shipping experience is half your shopping experience

Customers now make purchases based on things that are the responsibility of operations, like shipping speed and convenience. That's impossible without tighter supply chain coordination. Compete for customer purchases and continued loyalty by offering fast, cheap, and on-time shipping with our platform.

Integrated platform

A coordinated suite of supply chain products to manage ecommerce fulfillment

We connect and coordinate key moments of the supply chain so that upstream decisions and downstream outcomes are optimized for maximum performance. Customers benefit from our platform's shared scale, which produces faster, cheaper, and more accurate shipping than any one retailer can provide on their own.

Coordinating the fragmented ops stack

It's impossible to do any one step well, like shipping an order fast and cheap, without doing all the important steps together.

Flexible APIs fit any existing process

Time-to-value is the best in the industry due to the flexible nature of our APIs making implementation a breeze.

Data modeling powers better decisions

We automate decisions with stochastic modeling based on billions of data points, not static rules and configurations.

Centralized ecosystem benefits everyone

As new partners, like carriers, are connected to Shipium, customers can turn on integrations with no additional costs.

Shipium Inventory Placement

Forecast and allocate inventory properly

You can only ship stuff from where it's located.

Place inventory in the locations closest to probable future buyers to minimize delivery distance, thus increasing delivery speed and reducing shipping costs. Customers replace manual spreadsheet tasks by bridging the sourcing with initial allocation decisions and automating SKU-level placement.

How Inventory Placement works
  • Shipium works with your existing forecasting tools to recommend allocation optimized for delivery speed and cost.
  • Works with both owned fulfillment or 3PL networks.
  • Integrates with existing purchase order processes and systems.
  • Integrates with existing inventory systems.

Shipium Delivery Promise

Make a competitive delivery promise you can keep

Customers are more likely to buy if they know when they will get it.

Companies who promise faster or free shipping up front can incrementally improve their cart conversion rates as high as 12%. When paired with the Shipium platform, following through on that promise directly impacts customer loyalty and repeat purchases.

How Delivery Promise works
  • Shipium algorithmically models delivery estimates based on several inputs, including fulfillment network, carrier methods, inventory, and parcel properties.
  • You make an API call to Shipium wherever you want to merchandise a delivery date—e.g., product detail pages or cart checkout workflow.
  • The service returns an estimated date which you display to the customer.

Shipium Shipment Generation

Route orders across a complex network

Constrain on speed, optimize for cost.

Ship the right products to the right customers from the right warehouse or store at the right time to minimize cost and hit your promises. Shipment Generation solves order routing's two hardest problems: complicated real-time logical decision making, and harmonizing integration into all required systems.

How Shipment Generation works
  • Sits at the intersection of existing systems, like the OMS and Inventory Management.
  • Creates a "cart-level fulfillment plan" that manages all decisions for a given order across your network and systems.
  • Decides which SKUs should be shipped from which nodes based on cost-based optimizations that hit a specific delivery date promise.
  • Handles split shipments.

Shipium Carrier Selection

Select the best shipping method

Cost-based and promise-driven decisions are made automatically.

Outbound shipping is the highest expense on an ecommerce P&L. Selecting the right carrier method is the last—and most important—step to maximizing cost savings while ensuring a delivery promise is kept.

How Carrier Selection works
  • Immediately ingests with your existing carrier contracts. We do not resell rates at a markup, and only work with customers who have their own relationship with carriers.
  • Takes care of all TMS-level tasks, like label augmentation and manifesting.
  • Context aware of a promised date given to customers, and orients decisions around that constraint. Will pick the cheapest price to hit a given date.
  • Integrates into the WMS or store-level POS to pass down shipping decisions and labels.
  • Data collection from each selection will provide historical reporting on total costs saved, and future recommendations of better carrier options.
