With Shippo, businesses are able to compare delivery times and shipping rates and print labels immediately upon sign up through shipping provider accounts activated by default on Shippo.  

Today, we’re excited to activate two more default accounts for Shippo customers: UberRUSH and Deutsche Post. They will be appear alongside existing Shippo shipping provider accounts which includes: USPS, DHL Express, and Parcelforce.


Businesses in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco can send intracity packages on-demand with UberRUSH. 

UberRUSH is one of the most affordable on-demand delivery services since couriers won’t need to make round trips. UberRUSH also offers fixed quotes, meaning that you won’t be affected by traffic or road blockage - only pay for what you are quoted for upfront. 


UberRUSH also recently expanded their areas of service to include parts of:

  • Evanston and Albany Park - near Chicago
  • Brooklyn - near New York City
  • East Bay - near San Francisco
