Shipium connects delivery promises before purchase with the processes of fulfillment and shipping after the purchase:

  • Delivery promise data modeling on the PDP and cart checkout workflows.

  • "Fulfillment plan" logic across a set of multiple nodes (for example: FCs, carriers, SKUs and boxes).

  • Selecting the best carrier method at the end of the fulfillment process.
