SEATTLE, March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Shipium, the leading shipping platform for enterprise retailers and logistics service providers, today announced a partnership with Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH), the global leader in supply chain commerce.

"As the percentage of ecommerce sales continues to grow, retailers are forced to balance escalating shipping costs with providing an expedited and transparent delivery experience," said Eric Lamphier, senior director of Alliances for Manhattan. "Shipium and Manhattan are at the forefront of orchestrating and optimizing every part of the ecommerce fulfillment process."

The Shipping Experience is Half the Shopping Experience

Retailers can optimize their shipping performance by adding Shipium's "Ship from Anywhere" APIs to Manhattan's industry-leading Manhattan Active® Warehouse Management and Manhattan Active® Omni solutions. A major American apparel retailer recently leveraged a combined Shipium/Manhattan solution to improve the way it fulfills orders from its warehouses and nationwide store network. Manhattan's Order Management solution handles delivery promising and sourcing decisions and shares that information with Shipium who then selects the best carrier from its vast carrier network and generates the manifest.

Shipium customers average a 12% reduction in annual parcel spend the first year they switch to Shipium, while customers saw 99.1% on-time-delivery performance during the 2023 peak season. Together, Shipium and Manhattan help retailers keep the promises that they made.

"Coordinating specific shipping use cases across existing systems is the only way to drive lower costs and happier customers," said Jason Murray, CEO and co-founder of Shipium. "We are excited to partner with Manhattan to streamline shipping operations in DCs and stores, and play our part driving a unified supply chain across the retail industry."
