What Is Shipping Software?

Whether your store is online or a brick-and-mortar location, shipping software allows you to manage orders as they arrive, determine the most appropriate shipping option, generate printed shipping labels with all the correct information and send the package with your preferred carrier.

A lot of work goes into making sure each order is fulfilled accurately and at an acceptable cost, and shipping software assists or, in some cases, fully automates parts of the shipping process.

Due to the growth of e-commerce businesses, shipping software vendors offer a wide array of integration options with carriers to offer the best possible rates, no matter what you're shipping.
