Common Questions

Best rate shipping is an important part of daily operation so we have tried to make it as easy as possible in our warehouse management system (WMS). Here are some common questions that our users have had when getting started.

How do I get the best shipping rate?

Shipping rates vary by carrier, service level, discounts based on volume, dimensions, shipping zone (distance), weight, and much more.

Using a multicarrier strategy in a fulfillment software system that has rate shopping is a good way to ensure you get the best rates on individual shipments of orders.

How do you make sure you have the best shipping rate?

Best ship rate shopping software like Shipedge, communicates with shipping carriers in real-time to pull rates that include feeds and surcharges.

We then compare those rates in real-time and use shipping parameters like max transit time restrictions to determine whats the best shipping label to generate. We do all this in the span of milliseconds to make sure your fulfillment process is scalable.

Where can I get discounted shipping rates?

While software companies like Shipedge, don’t act as a shipping broker (where you can get discounted rates).

We have sourced some special agreements over the years with some of the bigger carriers. We leverage our platform shipping traffic to get you out-of-the-box rates with several major carriers.
