Shipwire release new features

June 5, 2009

We've just released a number of improvements to Shipwire, most of these based on the feedback we have received from you. Two changes you might be especially interested in are detailed below:

Action-Oriented History – Your Account History now allows you to select one, or multiple items that need your attention, and to perform the necessary action right from there. For example, you can quickly view, inspect, and release items on Hold without ever leaving your Account History.

Simplified Shipping Preferences – We have streamlined our Shipping Preferences to clarify how these interact with Shipping Optimization. You will now notice that with Shipping Optimization 'On', the Preferences now clearly indicate that you can either 'Hold' shipments, or you can send these out by letting Shipwire find the best value carrier in the selected delivery class (e.g. 1 Day). If Shipping Optimization is off, you will have the option to specify 'Hold' or choose from available carriers for each delivery class (e.g. 1D).

We understand that some of you are looking for additional control when Shipping Optimization is on, especially for International shipments, and we wanted to convey that we are taking this feedback seriously and are planning additional improvements in this area.

Please continue to submit feedback so that we can continue to improve.
