SHIPPING ROI TIP: Reduce Canadian Shipping Costs with Ship-IT

Do you ship orders into Canada or from Canada into the U.S.? It might be time to revisit the ADSI Carrier Library. It’s easy to configure Ship-IT to consider multiple Canadian carriers and services, including CanPar Transport, Canada Post, DHL, FedEx®, UPS®, USPS® and others.

  • ADSI can help you load additional carriers and provide updates to rates and services as needed.
  • Ship-IT will then automatically compare carrier rates and services, eliminating the need to manually look up and compare carriers.
  • Ship-IT also produces all the necessary carrier-compliant labels and documents. (Custom doc’s also available.)
  • Shipments are processed in seconds, because Ship-IT does all the work.

By adding multiple carriers to your portfolio, you can be sure that you’re always choosing the lowest cost delivery option while meeting your customer’s service requirements.
