case study

Defender, marine supply company

This marine products supplier had a large number of SKUs, but no ability to consolidate shipments, no system in place to handle LTL, and a high number of abandoned online shopping carts due to overcharging. Their current “box-on-demand” system couldn’t accommodate custom boxes, and overall inefficiency was costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.

The case study for Defender highlights their difficulty and lost revenue in their packaging, and shows how Shipstore customized a solution that brings them efficiency and saves them money.

Elanders, supply chain management company

This already established worldwide supply chain management company expanded into the United States, and began experiencing immediate needs as they worked to quickly and accurately fulfill large numbers of orders with complicated rate logic. It became clear to them right away that their manual method of entry was costing them in both time and lost dollars due to incorrect customer billing.

The case study for Elanders highlights their quick growth, and shows how Shipstore customized a solution that brings them efficiency and saves them money.

Factory Motor Parts, supplier of motor parts

This major supplier of motor parts had just under 100 warehouse locations, all using unconnected systems and different carriers. They needed to scale as they grew, but their current systems didn’t scale well, nor did they accommodate many variables. They were losing money due to human error and billing issues, and, all too often, vital information was not being reliably kept and shared among the many locations.

The case study for Factory Motor Parts highlights their need for a system that would unify their many locations, and it shows how Shipstore customized a solution that brings them efficiency and saves them money.

CLIENT success

Here’s what we’ve been up to lately.

Printing Company


A Kansas City based company focused on providing technology solutions and services to the restaurant industry. In 2014, they began searching for a faster and more efficient way to address small package shipping. Shipstore came to their attention and now they put their trust in Shipstore to fulfill their small package deliveries. They have adopted Shipstore technology and rely on Shipstore’s consultative expertise to enable them to move faster than ever before. Our relationship continues to contribute to their growing success.

Shipstore integrated three distinct processes into their shipping procedures and melded them into one smooth, hassle-free solution. The proprietary internal development staff at Shipstore developed custom functionality outside standard shipping parameters and enabled remote accessibility, seamlessly fitting into their business model. The unmatched customer service that Shipstore provides helped them deploy our tools and train their team with no business interruptions.

Manufacturing Company


A midwest manufacturing company was built on its service and reliability. They needed to find a shipping solution to match, if not increase the speed at which they get their products out of the warehouse and into their customers’ hands. They found this exact efficiency within Shipstore. The program itself provides them with the extensive reporting, dashboard generation, and metrics they desire to provide high-end service and reliability.

Some of the other positive aspects Shipstore brought to their company include the consolidation of four areas including North Kansas City, Omaha, Arkansas City, and Springfield, MO into one shipping platform, saving them the hassle of driving to and from each location to identify issues. The experience of the support team at Shipstore gave them the opportunity to take their various box types and report the dimensions of each order through a box code specific to each and every batch. This allowed them to facilitate, organize, and print various labels (standard, doctab, and generic courier), in one system with the reading of a barcode scanner.
