Shipping Insights & Alerts
Gauge your shipping health.
The Sifted Score is like a credit score for shipping. See where you stand, where you’ve been, and how you can improve. It’s a great place to start when prioritizing improvements to your shipping carriers and operations.
See normalized shipping data.
Full shipping visibility – across all your carriers – is vital. Understand how you’re trending with key metrics like shipping charges by service type, package count, transit time, and average cost per pound.
Manage and filter reports.
Confidently report on what matters to you, your boss, and your business most. The Export Center houses all your reports (plus gives you a quick view of their details) for you to easily pull and share as needed.
Network Distribution Optimization
Simulate warehouse locations.
Is it time to consider a new warehouse or distribution center? Network Distribution Optimization pinpoints where you need to be located to reach your customers most efficiently (aka cheap + fast). You’ll see the cost/pack and transit time impact to know that you’re making the right call.
Optimal Service Selection
Choose the best service type.
Ground vs. 2-day vs. 3-day vs. overnight. Small adjustments to your service type can make a big impact on your bottom line. Why pay for something you don’t need? Make the switch for a quick win today.
See the impact of a new box.
Additional handling and oversize/dimensional charges can add up. Which means you might want to take another look at how you’re packaging your products. Package modeling lets you simulate changes before investing in a box rework.

Establish contract targets.
Carrier relationships are the backbone of your supply chain. And securing best-in-class rates sets you up for success in the short and long term. Run re-rating scenarios, strengthen your relationship with your carrier rep(s), and optimize how and who you’re shipping with today.
Validate carrier rates.
You have contract terms for a reason. And it’s important to validate your charges against negotiated rates. Rate compliance shows you if there is a discrepancy – and gives you the data to back it up with your carrier.
Prevent surprise charges.
Your contract tiers can sneak up on you…without a tool to manage them. Contract Monitoring stops surprising volume-based pricing penalties and keeps you from exceeding or falling out of your negotiated tiers.
Secure money you’re owed.
Carrier mistakes happen. Invalid accessorial fees eat away at your bottom line. Automatically detect billing errors and secure refunds you’re owed. It’s “free money” for your business.
Protect your parcels.
Lost and damaged packages are a harsh reality for shippers small and large. Minimize costs and get a better payout than what is currently offered by the carriers.
Automatic Bill Pay
Automate the way you pay.
Whether you want to save time on data entry, avoid late payment penalties, or maximize discounts, Bill Pay is the best way to free up your staff and focus on productivity – not paperwork.
