LSO Announces Certified Partnership With ShipJunction Offering Shippers Greater Control Over Cost and Speed

LSO Customers Can Now Reduce Carrier Shipping Costs Using ShipJunction's Innovative Rate Manager for Parcel Delivery

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2015) - LSO, formerly Lone Star Overnight, a leading regional parcel carrier, announced today a certified partnership with ShipJunction, a Cloud based multi-carrier shipping solution based in San Francisco. ShipJunction has integrated the LSO offering within their innovative platform to simplify shipping processes while improving warehouse efficiency and allowing customers to ship smarter and faster. This solution offers customers greater options regionally when selecting parcel carriers.

Beginning in January 2015, the two major global carriers will impose a major shift in pricing for Ground parcel shipping based on package size, also known as dimensional weight pricing that will significantly and negatively impact the bottom line for many shippers. In an effort to thwart this pricing impact, the new application will assist shippers in selecting the best option for shipping in advance of the pending price changes by the other carriers.

"We are very excited to be a certified LSO partner as this will allow our customers to seamlessly leverage their competitive rates and rapid delivery times across a sizable regional footprint. With the increasing complexity and number of shipping options, it is prudent to take a portfolio optimization approach to the allocation of packages across the parcel carriers to maximize margins", said Jason Ng, CMO of ShipJunction.

"The ShipJunction Rate Manager provides customers with greater control to ship their parcels across multiple carriers while understanding the relationship between time-in-transit and cost. This is critical as shippers will now have to evaluate the overall landed cost, the pending DIM changes and rate increases prior to shipping," said Rick Jones, CEO of LSO. "The new LSO platform integration through ShipJunction allows customers to make the best value-based decision for every package. Starting in January, shippers will be charged for the size of all their packages, not just their weight. If companies ship packages larger than 1/2 a cubic foot, they should consider a new shipping partner and LSO and ShipJunction developed these new solutions in advance of these price increases to help their customers."
