AUSTIN, Texas, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ShipEngine, the world's leading shipping API, today announced 20-plus new less-than-truckload (LTL) integrations, making it the leading shipping API to offer both parcel and LTL integrations.
LTL capabilities are essential for merchants who sell and ship products that are too large or heavy to ship via parcel. Oftentimes, these items do not meet the requirements for a full truckload. However, most merchants don't need a full truck for every bulky shipment, and they prefer to ship these items as a larger package on a truck shared with other shippers.
The new LTL integrations will enable ShipEngine users to easily ship bulky items via a shared truck, decreasing time spent on the shipping process and delivering merchandise to customers safely and efficiently. Beginning in July, existing ShipEngine users in the United States can simply connect these new LTL carriers within their dashboards to start shipping LTL.
"One of our strategic goals at ShipEngine is to be the best shipping API for our users, no matter how they ship," said ShipEngine General Manager Jim Gagliardi. "These new LTL integrations allow us to reach an entirely new group of brands and platforms that need LTL capabilities, as well as to better serve our existing customers who need LTL."
Prior to the announcement of LTL integrations, ShipEngine only offered connections to parcel carriers. The addition of new LTL offerings not only enables users to consolidate all of their shipping needs onto one platform but solidifies ShipEngine's market position as the leading shipping API to offer both parcel and LTL integrations.
