Shippo Announces Two New Carrier Partners: AxleHire and CDL

By Shippo

Today we announced the launch of two new carriers in our shipping web app, AxleHire and CDL. The new carrier capabilities are aimed at small and mid-sized businesses. By partnering with innovative shipping technologies like Shippo, these carriers can make their services widely available and help businesses meet increasing consumer demands for same day, next-day, and two-day delivery.

A recent Shippo survey found that while 15 percent of consumers online expect same day and next-day delivery, just one percent of small and mid-sized online businesses offer it. Shipping costs and opaque processes are working against consumer expectations of “fast and free” shipping. With these new carrier additions, Shippo will support business with more fast, transparent, and reliable shipping options.

AxleHire, a last-mile logistics startup, supports deliveries for companies such as HelloFresh, Freshly, and Tyson. Launched in 2015, the company began operating in San Francisco and Los Angeles and now serves businesses in Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas, and Phoenix.

CDL is a family-owned company established in 1955. Headquartered in New York City, CDL operates out of seven distribution centers with central sorting hubs located in Brooklyn, New York and Carlstadt, New Jersey. The company started as a trucking and messenger service serving the Tri-State area and is now a leading regional carrier in the Northeast and Mid Atlantic.

“At Shippo, we’re always seeking new ways to give our customers more flexibility if they are looking to expand, change, and improve their shipping operations,” said Simon Kreuz, president and co-founder at Shippo. “The solutions offered through the Shippo platform can have a direct impact on cost-savings, customer experience, and speed. With the addition of AxleHire and CDL, we are excited to offer even more targeted services to businesses so they can meet the increasing demand for expedited last mile delivery.”
