Traditional shipping solutions provide estimates for packed items – tasking businesses and their customers with figuring out how to pack their items, what the dimensions will be and how much they will weigh once packed – all just to get an estimate of the shipping cost. It's more than just a waste of time, it's a cost of business that often delays buying decisions.

With, businesses and their customers access instant rate quotes for real items without having to figure out all of the details. They provide basic information about the unpacked (or packed) item and ShipHawk does the rest – providing on demand packing and shipping rates from a number of reputable carriers which allows their customers to make educated buying decisions right at the point of sale.

"Imagine your customers knowing exactly what they are going to pay, no matter what they are buying or where they might be shipping their purchase. You can finally get back to business," explains CEO, Jeremy Bodenhamer.

Now small to medium sized businesses, e-Commerce platforms, and enterprise software solutions alike can leverage ShipHawk to provide real time shipping rates to their customers, removing sales obstacles and automating shipment dispatch.
