Before you read on, take a look around you. Chances are, pretty much everything you see has been shipped, often multiple times, in order to get there. E-commerce is exploding and with it, parcel shipping is becoming a meaningful factor in a business' ability to succeed. Creating a compelling shipping experience for customers is hard but necessary.
At Shippo, our goal is to level the playing field by providing businesses access to shipping tools and terms that would not be available to them otherwise. By lowering the barriers to shipping, businesses, marketplaces, and platforms are able to connect to multiple shipping carriers, get shipping rates, print labels, automate international documents, track shipments, and facilitate returns.
