According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, 2015 ecommerce sales increased 14.6% to $341.7 billion for the year. Ecommerce demand is at an all-time high, and retailers that began as traditional brick-and-mortar operations currently do much of their business online, warranting services that deliver packages to customers quickly and cost effectively.

“Our clients have seen a rapid shift in the way they must respond to customers,” said Kelley. “The nature of consumer interactions with retailers has changed. Today, shipping is an important touchpoint with customers and if retailers don’t meet customer demand for low-cost, efficient and reliable shipping, they risk valuable relationships. Our shipping services helps retailers minimize the costs of package shipping and allows them to get packages to customers more efficiently.”
