Partnership provides eCommerce merchants in the UK with a streamlined, scalable way to ship to customers in over 220 countries
ShipStation, the cloud-based eCommerce shipping solutions provider, has announced that UPS is now live on its carrier services platform in the UK. The new collaboration gives UK merchants using ShipStation access to UPS’s domestic and international shipping services at discounted rates, making it easier to scale their delivery operations, save on shipping costs and grow their revenue.
A strategic partner of Codeless Platforms, ShipStation believes that the new agreement will provide customers and merchants with more choice and transparency when it comes to shipping. Merchants will also have the option to drop off at a growing network of nearly 35,000 UPS Access Point® locations across Europe for greater convenience and control over their deliveries. With no volume commitments, all merchants with a ShipStation account can add and access UPS as they streamline their delivery operations.
“At a time when it’s more important than ever for small and medium-sized businesses to save on costs, we’re delighted to be expanding our relationship with UPS to the UK market,” said Mike Hayers, General Manager Europe at ShipStation. “Businesses on our platform can directly access UPS’s affordable rates on our carrier services platform to ship with the utmost ease to wherever they need to in the world. By removing the complexities and inflexibilities often associated with delivery management and instead giving greater choice and control when it comes to shipping, we’re enabling our merchants to focus more on the most essential part of their business, the end-consumer.”
“Small and medium-sized businesses are the heart of the global economy, and we’re always looking for ways to make eCommerce easier for them – especially when it comes to cross-border trade,” said Dana Nino, Vice-President of Marketing at UPS. “We’re excited to work with ShipStation to bring our shipping services to more UK businesses. Having easy access to UPS’s flexible, reliable shipping options at discounted rates will help them achieve their business goals and thrive in the world of global eCommerce.”
