This is adding a lot of pressure on shippers and carriers. While shippers find it challenging to select reliable, cost-effective, and high-performing carriers that can scale up or down based on requirements, carriers struggle with operational challenges, inefficient routing, and missed or delayed delivery deadlines.
ShipX, a full-service delivery solutions provider, is coming to their aid with a combination of leading-edge technology tools and a Vetted Delivery Carrier Network (VDN). ShipX does the heavy lifting of identifying and unifying high-performing carriers into a reliable shipping solution that can be monitored and managed on a single technology platform. The network of vetted carriers has the capability to meet unique delivery requirements of varying shipment size, volume, and urgency.
“We’re the only national delivery solution provider with a unified delivery network across all states, and do not require the support of the U.S. Postal Service. On top of that, we are champions of sustainability as all deliveries fulfilled by our network of carriers are fully carbon neutral,” says Solomon Zakinov, founder and CEO of ShipX.
Complementing the VDN is ShipX’s end-to-end technology platform that ensures continuity in every shipment via dynamic routing. ShipX extends this technology to its vetted carriers, who then leverage it to find the shortest and most fuel-efficient routes to optimize shipping. Consequently, shippers can make faster and more cost-effective deliveries. The network is also equipped with backup carriers to help shippers in case the selected carriers do not show up for any particular reason.
Implementing the platform with a shipper’s existing transportation management system (TMS) is equally simple. All they need to do is integrate the API to gain access to the hordes of benefits offered by ShipX to streamline the delivery process.
Clients look for real-time visibility to augment their last-mile delivery solution and ShipX understands it well. Its delivery solution is equipped with a customer portal that helps in this regard, providing a bird’s eye view of each shipment lifecycle. Shippers can track all their shipments— including those not fulfilled by ShipX— from the loading dock until it reaches the final doorstep. An added advantage is the photo proof of the package at the destination, bringing an extra level of transparency into the process. The portal also comes with a robust reporting suite, which can be used by clients to generate customized reports.

ShipX also stands out for its simple and predictable pricing. Through its regional delivery program, ShipX has effectuated a 22 percent reduction in transit time and a 30 percent increase in overall savings for one of its clients. Shippers can also minimize cost and transit time by choosing coast-to-coast zone skipping offered by the company.
Equally commendable is the company’s in-house transportation service to directly pick up shipments for its e-commerce and retailer clients. Not many delivery solutions providers have their own in-house trucking capabilities, making ShipX’s services unique in the space, from which both shippers and carriers stand to benefit. Shippers can bring the packages to any of ShipX’s three distribution centers in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Chicago and in 2023, new facilities in Dallas and Atlanta, from where it gets connected to the final mile partners.
Owing to such competencies, the company is working to achieve the mutual goals of shippers and carriers. ShipX wants to keep living up to its name and be the X-factor in optimizing shipment deliveries and costs.
