Familiar Shipping Challenges
Frustrated with its cumbersome shipping process that was too time-consuming to handle its high-volume orders and number of boxes shipped per day, SignWarehouse® needed a shipping solution that helped streamline this process and integrated with its NetSuite ERP. It also needed a way to compile freight quotes of multiple carriers in one interface quickly and automatically so its sales team could offer the lowest shipping rates to customers at the time of shipping order entry.
SignWarehouse® deployed the Pacejet enterprise shipping platform which seamlessly integrated with its NetSuite ERP. It connected them directly with a network of carriers via the cloud, providing a complete set of Parcel and LTL shipping services and carriers while automating their entire shipping process. SignWarehouse® could then generate real-time rate freight quotes and give customers the option to choose the most cost-effective carrier for their shipment at the time of shipping order entry, a unique feature of Pacejet.
Because of Pacejet’s rate shopping with major carriers, SignWarehouse® was able to cut overall shipping costs by 40%. Pacejet’s shipping automation and single interface saved the shipping team a significant amount of time—enough for SignWarehouse® to maintain its same-day shipping policy, even during its highest volumes and peak shipping periods. The company also helped its customers save money on shipping by identifying which carrier had the lowest freight costs through Pacejet’s carrier network.
Pacejet has all the shipping features we need while giving our customers the most cost-effective shipping options.
