Leading cloud-based shipping solution, ShipStation is delivering a suite of innovative features designed to help online businesses streamline shipping processes, enhance customer experiences and achieve greater efficiency.

ShipStation’s latest features include Inventory Sync to ensure accurate inventory levels across sales channels, eliminating unexpected backorders and accelerating order fulfilment, and Deliver-by Date to see, organise, and prioritise shipments for on-time arrivals and meeting marketplace requirements like Shopify’s Shop Promise and Amazon Prime.

Businesses can automate the import of Harmonisation Codes from Shopify, eBay, and BigCommerce, simplifying cross-border shipping compliance and reducing customs delays. With Checkout Rates, control the exact shipping services and rates displayed at checkout for platforms like Shopify, BigCommerce, Adobe Commerce and Wix.

GlobalPost Carrier Integration allows businesses to leverage a new carrier for reliable, affordable international shipping, tracking, and customs clearance.

It’s also possible to design bespoke labels for in-house delivery fleets, PUDO (pick-up/drop-off) and Click & Collect, which feature customisable QR codes and barcodes, mirroring the ease of carrier-delivered packages.

Add-On Marketplace expands functionalities through customisable integrations with 3PL providers, Cubiscan for dimensional weighing, dropshipping solutions, and more.

ShipStation vice president and head of Australia and New Zealand, David Boyer said, “Australian retailers deal with unique challenges like managing vast distances for deliveries, handling remote and regional shipments, and navigating complex international shipping requirements.

“By automating key parts of order fulfilment and providing greater transparency and control over shipping processes, we’re empowering businesses like Frank Green, Subo and West Coast Eagles to operate more efficiently and meet their customers’ evolving demands. These innovations don’t just cut down on operational headaches; they also free up valuable resources, letting retailers focus on growth and their customers.”

In addition to these new features, ShipStation released its High Volume Plan for retailers in Australia and New Zealand. This plan is tailored to meet the demands of enterprise parcel delivery, with advanced automation and operational efficiency.

High Volume Plan users can also access ShipStation features such as Shipping Strategies which optimises shipping costs by comparing preferred shipping services and applying the lowest rate and Auto-Split which saves time and eliminates manual entry errors, streamlining warehouse operations.
