Parcel shipping for Canadian companies

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Pitney Bowes has brought its PitneyShip Pro parcel shipping product to the Canadian market.

The interface has been specifically designed to scale across all employees regardless of where they work, with its fast set-up requiring minimal IT support. Employees simply receive a secure email with clear instructions to access PitneyShip Pro from any secure internet connection and they can begin shipping.

Businesses with common integration requirements will have the option to engage the Pitney Bowes services team.

Users can select from a range of different carriers and services on a single screen, including Canada Post, UPS, Fedex, Purolator, Dicom, Canpar, Loomis and ICS. It’s possible to compare rates across multiple national and regional carriers.

It also lets users print shipping labels across multiple carriers, simplifies international shipping with the appropriate custom forms and process shipping requests. Applications including ParcelPoint Smart Lockers can also be integrated.

 

Ship Pro gives organizations greater control and visibility into shipping activity and spend, providing a view of their shipping activity across all employees and locations. .

“Every second, 50 parcels are generated in Canada. That’s 1.6 billion parcels a year, expected to rise to 2.5 billion by 2026. Businesses need the right tools and technologies in place to manage this growing volume, to keep their costs down and deliver the best customer experience, but a hybrid workforce can make this incredibly challenging,” said Shemin Nurmohamed, senior vice-president, sending technology solutions at Pitney Bowes.

The company says it will roll out additional functions later this year.
