For the past 5 years, Shipwire has been on a mission to give our customers the shipping muscle of Fortune 500 companies. During that time, we have provisioned warehouses in 3 countries, served businesses with headquarters in over 45 countries, and delighted buyers in more than 180 countries.
We now enter the next phase of that mission.
As a testament to your support, guidance, and patronage, it is our privilege to announce that commerce and technology giants eBay® and Newell-Rubbermaid® have made an investment in Shipwire.
Over the past year, in direct response to your feedback, we”ve added service level guarantees, same-day shipping, inventory alerts, multi-user access, Shipwire Anywhere (our free order management and shipping software), and more. Needless to say, we think that eBay's and Newell Rubbermaid's belief, vision and support for Shipwire is a smart investment; one which will accelerate our ability to turn your continuing feedback into the features that will help grow your global business.
It is an incredibly exciting time for our organization. Now with the support of two powerhouses, we can accelerate the development of the enterprise features you want, and reach deeper into the markets where you want to be.
Our growing team is here for you, to help prepare for the holidays. Together we can make this your best selling holiday season ever!
