Retailers Can Choose the Best Shipping Carrier Based on Cost and Efficiency
Ship online orders faster and save money with ShipEngine & Celerant
Celerant Technology, a leading provider of innovative retail solutions, is partnered with ShipEngine, the world’s leader in multi-carrier shipping logistics. Celerant’s integration with ShipEngine allows retailers to shop for the best shipping rates by selecting from over 40 carriers, as well as giving them the ability to create labels, validate addresses, track packages, automate their shipping processes, and more - all in one place. By having all of these fulfillment options in a single interface, retailers can fulfill orders more efficiently, save time, and reduce shipping costs.
ShipEngine is a multi-carrier shipping platform that provides best-in-class shipping functionality directly to eCommerce stores, logistics and warehouse providers, system integrators, eCommerce application integrators, and new application developers. Built specifically for developers, ShipEngine's robust set of shipping APIs enable developers to build custom workflows within their own platforms and streamline the eCommerce fulfillment process with real-time label generation, rate quoting, parcel tracking, and address validation. ShipEngine supports carriers across the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia, including USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, and many more.
ShipEngine’s API embeds ShipStation tools directly in the Celerant’s point of sale and back office software, allowing retailers to manage online orders from a single interface. As a result, retailers can fulfill online orders faster. Within Celerant’s order fulfillment module, retailers can easily pick, pack and ship faster in fewer steps, select the most cost-effective carrier for every shipment, and print packing slips and shipping labels in one step! Over 40 carriers are available for retailers to choose from, including FedEx, UPS, USPS, Amazon Prime, DHL, and more. The integration provides real-time multi-carrier rate shopping, so that retailers can select the right carrier based on costs, delivery times, and capabilities. The integration also offers tools to track packages, validate addresses, generate labels, use built-in shipping processes or create custom workflows.
ShipEngine vs ShipStation
ShipEngine and ShipStation are part of the Auctane family of shipping solutions built for ecommerce brands, platforms, 3PLs, and others. Both ShipEngine and ShipStation offer the same solutions, however, ShipEngine is fully integrated with Celerant's system - eliminating the need to switch between multiple platforms. Integrating ShipEngine and Celerant’s retail solution enables retailers to manage their online orders, and have each order shipped by the “best-fit” carrier. After an order is placed on Celerant’s eCommerce platform or integrated marketplaces, such as Amazon, Walmart and eBay, the order is automatically transferred to the Celerant back office. From the back office, retailers can access ShipEngine to compare real-time shipping rates across multiple carriers, and select the most cost-effective and efficient carrier for each shipment. Rules can also be configured to automatically select carriers based on shipping costs, delivery times, carrier capabilities, and other preferences.
Large logistics operations prefer to do things all inside of one platform, so instead of having to jump between multiple screens and multiple applications, they want everything to live in one singular location. That's exactly the benefit you would get from using ShipEngine with Celerant because that allows you to basically have all of your fulfillment processes done inside of your ERP.

Connect with the best shipping carriers
ShipEngine allows retailers to connect with their preferred carriers, and gain access to a large network of local, regional, national and international carriers. In addition to Celerant’s existing integrations with USPS, UPS and FedEx, ShipEngine allows retailers to ship with Amazon Prime, DHL/DHL Express, Stamps.com, Endicia, Globegistics, PC Portal Logistics, Newgistics, IMEX, Parcel Force Worldwide, Access Worldwide, DPD, Hermes, and more.
Take advantage of negotiated rates
ShipEngine users may continue using their preexisting negotiated rates, or leverage ShipEngine’s discounted rates and ability to negotiate on behalf of the retailer. This is especially helpful for retailers that are just starting out in the eCommerce space and may not have a high enough volume of orders that would allow them to negotiate a very aggressive rate with certain carriers.
Streamline shipping processes
By integrating ShipEngine with Celerant, all ShipStation shipping tools, and more, are embedded directly in the Celerant back office. Retailers can access API tools to track packages, generate and print labels, validate addresses, view estimated taxes, and more. With these built-in processes, retailers can automate shipping, and customize workflows to further improve supply chain efficiencies.
