ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, June 18, 2013… St. Louis-based TAGG Logistics, the third-party fulfillment, distribution and logistics provider, announced it is upgrading its shipping capabilities for e-commerce clients through a partnership with Advanced Distribution Systems, Inc (‘ADSI’), the Schaumburg, IL-based software provider of multi-carrier order fulfillment solutions. This new Transportation Management System (‘TMS’) will provide TAGG’s efulfillment clients the ability to select the appropriate shipping service based on cost and transit time.
“Managing shipping methods and costs continues to be a top priority for ecommerce fulfillment clients. The growing complexity of shipping options, combined with the competitiveness of online retailing, means ecommerce retailers must pay close attention to transit times and cost.” Said Tod Yazdi, principal. “With ADSI, we have the ability to provide least-cost-routing. We can offer our clients a variety of shipping methods, then compare those methods looking at cost and transit time to determine the cheapest, fastest service,” said Yazdi.
The new TMS system also allows TAGG to adapt to every-changing shipping options. Recently, eFulfillment clients are turning to shipping that combines carriers, such as USPS and FedEx or UPS to broaden services. These ‘hybrids’, including FedEx’s SmartPost – a leading shipping method for Amazon, or UPS’s Mail Innovations are become more popular with online retailers. “Through ADSI, TAGG seamlessly integrates with carrier options such as SmartPost, allowing our ecommerce fulfillment clients to dramatically decrease costs without degrading service,” said Yazdi.
