Better Trucks and Shipium Partner for Faster, Technology-Driven E-commerce Delivery
Partnership gives Shipium customers access to Better Trucks’ connected delivery network.
CHICAGO and SEATTLE, February 9, 2023 — Better Trucks, a technology-driven logistics firm focused on rapid parcel delivery, today announced a partnership with Shipium, the premier enterprise shipping platform for e-commerce retailers, brands, and 3PLs.
Better Trucks is a regional, last-mile parcel carrier with a focus on rapid-residential deliveries. The firm leverages a modern technology stack and interconnected network to drive faster delivery times, better end-to-end visibility into the lifecycle of each and every parcel, and more responsive, one-to-one customer service.
“There is no question that faster shipping options at a lower cost are now central to how modern operators plan out their network,” said Jason Murray, CEO of Shipium. “They need modern carriers like Better Trucks to make that strategy a reality. We are excited to be the premier enterprise platform where shippers can get easier and faster access to Better Trucks’ services.”
Shipium is the leading e-commerce shipping platform that helps retailers solve “the Prime problem” by modernizing their shipping software stack. Customers turn to Shipium when fast, affordable, and on-time delivery becomes a business priority. Most customers transition from single-threading a national carrier to utilizing 6 carriers, on average, in their first quarter of using Shipium.
“Consumer expectations around delivery are unwavering, and e-commerce shippers need partners like Better Trucks to improve speed, accuracy, and costs in order to meet those demands,” said Andy Whiting, Co-founder and CEO of Better Trucks. “But all too often, their shipping technology lets them down. They need a modern solution like Shipium to improve time-to-value and diversify carriers.”
The partnership is a natural fit for businesses looking to improve their last-mile performance. Combined, the two firms make next-day and two-day delivery a regular option while reducing the costs associated with faster shipping outcomes.
