LEHI, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EasyPost, a leading provider of shipping APIs that solve complex logistics problems for online merchants, today launches SmartRate, a new API that provides shippers with highly accurate shipment-level transit times based on a historical analysis of billions of shipments across all major and regional carriers. Using SmartRate, merchants can save up to 70% on optimized shipments.
“On-time deliveries are the key to customer satisfaction and repeat business,” said Jarrett Streebin, Founder and CEO of EasyPost. “Whether it's next day, 2 day, or ground, it's all about meeting customer expectations. The SmartRate API is the data product e-commerce businesses can't survive without.”
Specifically, SmartRate helps shippers:
- Save Money on Shipping - SmartRate provides transit time predictions across a variety of on-time delivery percentiles so customers can choose the lowest-cost option that meets their deliverability criteria
- Improve On-Time Delivery - SmartRate uses historical carrier performance, coupled with a sophisticated predictive data model to estimate time in transit, resulting in higher accuracy predictions than using carrier estimates alone
- Enhance the End-Customer Experience - SmartRate unlocks the ability to provide highly accurate delivery estimates for every shipping option being offered at checkout
