Canada Post and Tangentia create Canadian e-commerce shipping solution

by MM&D Online Staff

OTTAWA, ONTARIO—Canada Post and Tangentia have jointly created a new shipping solution that integrates with the IBM WebSphere Commerce platform.

The T-Ship solution allows retailers to offer their customers expected shipping times, delivery options, improved tracking and returns. Retailers will also benefit from higher operational efficiency and reduced support calls.

T-Ship’s simplified integration process is based on Tangentia’s pre-built reusable service assets which plugs into the IBM WebSphere Commerce platform. The service assets allow for real-time incorporation with Canada Post’s shipping data. It also means no additional customization is required on with WebSphere Commerce, which reduces the cost of data integration and speeds up implementation.
