SEKO Logistics is partnering with web-based e-commerce shipping solution, ShipStation.

The partnership is hoped to increase its e-commerce merchants’ ability to grow in new cross-border markets.

ShipStation helps e-commerce retailers import, organise, process and ship their orders quickly and easily from any web browser. It features the most integrations of any e-commerce web-based solution, with over 150 shopping carts, marketplaces, package carriers, and fulfilment services.

Merchants can now connect to SEKO Logistics via ShipStation and see:

• Reduced transit time and lower cost to international markets for faster expansion

• Reduced cart abandonment rates internationally with lower shipping costs

• An easy and monetized returns solution with international in-country return capabilities

• Unified tracking internationally regardless of final mile postal carrier

• Retailer/Seller custom-branded tracking portals

Brian Bourke, SEKO Logistics’ VP of Marketing, said the two are excited to combine their respective strengths to open up new markets for their merchants, particularly those exporting from their major markets in the UK, US and Australia.

“SEKO’s reputation for cross-border e-commerce solutions means we are also a first port of call for smaller shippers that want to expand globally. We will now be able to migrate those companies to ShipStation and they can just ‘flip a switch’ to use our cross-border e-commerce solutions because ShipStation is integrated with so many eCommerce platforms.”

He added that they see substantial growth opportunities to expand the partnership. “ShipStation is already the largest e-commerce TMS provider in the US, but they also want to expand more in the UK and Australia, which we can support with our established operations in both countries.

“We will also have the ability soon to extend our ‘White Glove’ services to ShipStation merchants selling heavier weight products in the US. This is a dynamic partnership that will help ShipStation merchants expand their brands and sales across our international network.”
