FedEx has announced a collaboration with leading shipping and fulfilment platform, Starshipit, to support small and medium businesses and allows online retailers to tap into the international e-commerce market.

Merchants integrating FedEx and Starshipit will benefit from enhanced shipping and fulfilment automation, with access to a premium delivery experience for their customers at competitive rates.

Starshipit customers will be able to generate FedEx shipping labels and use additional features, such as Express Shipping Services and International Shipping Documentation Service, without leaving the Starshipit platform.

FedEx Express’ Australasia sub-region senior vice president, Peter Langley said, “Our recent e-commerce research shows that online retailers are increasingly looking for digital solutions which strengthen their delivery capabilities and allow them to grow their exports by tapping more international customers.

“Our collaboration with Starshipit is yet another example of how we are strengthening our capabilities within the e-commerce ecosystem to help small and medium and e-commerce businesses in Australia and New Zealand.”

Starshipit partner manager, Hakan Steele added, “Our integration with FedEx makes streamlining shipping and fulfilment easy for eCommerce retailers. Using Starshipit and FedEx together empowers retailers to save time with automation and deliver great shipping experiences.”
