As an ecommerce business, focusing on fast, accurate shipping gives you an edge. Unfortunately, on-premise solutions don’t always have the flexibility to handle the omnichannel fulfillment required today. That’s where web-based shipping software comes in. 

Web-based shipping software enables shippers to react quickly to high-volume fulfillment processes, expand their operations to ship from anywhere, and increase revenue.

With its wide range of features and world-class support team, EasyPost Enterprise is one of the most flexible and powerful multi-carrier shipping solutions on the market, in part because we leverage both on-premise and web-based solutions. Wondering how it works? Let’s walk through some notable features, benefits, and customer stories. 

What is web-based shipping software?

Web-based shipping software, also known as cloud-based shipping software, helps businesses manage their shipping and logistics operations through a web browser. It’s used to manage and streamline shipping processes.

Unlike traditional shipping software, which is installed on a local computer, web-based shipping software is hosted on remote servers and accessed through the internet. This makes it a more convenient way to manage your shipping operations to ship from multiple locations or manage shipping remotely. 

How web-based shipping software streamlines shipping operations

Web-based shipping software streamlines the shipping process by centralizing the management of all shipping activities, comparing carrier rates and tracking shipments in real time, and scaling to meet a variety of shipping needs. With a cloud hosted service, businesses can run multiple systems in different locations to enable omnichannel fulfillment with shipping controls in a centralized location. 

By automating your shipping processes, you’ll boost efficiency, avoid errors, cut shipping costs, and deliver an excellent customer experience. 

Key features of our web-based shipping software 

With EasyPost Enterprise, your business can tap into the power of shipping automation with a web-based or on-premise shipping solution. Some of its most vital features include the following:  

Multi-carrier support and cost optimization

With varying pricing structures and service levels, the world of carriers is complex. Web-based shipping software sorts through all the details so you don’t have to.

EasyPost Enterprise integrates with both domestic and international carriers and supports postal, parcel, regional, less-than-truckload (LTL), and truckload (TL) shipping. You can connect with and manage all your carriers on a single platform.

Why does multi-carrier support matter? 

As you know, the end goal of an ecommerce business is to leave customers satisfied not only with your products, but with the delivery experience you provide. Lots of organizations struggle with this—in 2022, high customer delivery expectations were the top fulfillment challenge businesses faced. Choosing reliable carriers is the first step to ensuring a great delivery experience. Short of operating your own fleet of delivery vehicles, it’s the most impactful thing you can do. 

Shipping label generation

EasyPost Enterprise takes the guesswork out of shipping label generation by automatically printing labels for each order that comes through your system. In a fraction of a second, the system compares rates, transit times, and other factors to deliver the best results. Once a label is printed, the shipping details travel to your ERP, WMS, or other order fulfillment systems, allowing you to keep track of all the necessary information. 

EasyPost Enterprise can easily process up to 25,000 transactions per hour, and every label is 100% carrier-compliant. 

Your brand is one of your most valuable assets. With customizable documents and labels, you can embrace your brand image with every package you ship.

Real-time tracking and customer communication

Over 90% of consumers want the ability to track their packages. Tracking allows them to monitor their package’s journey from your distribution center to their home, making it easier to plan for deliveries. 

And parcel tracking doesn’t just help customers—your business can use tracking data to pinpoint errors or inefficiencies in the shipping process.

Seamless integration with leading ecommerce platforms and business software

While shipping software should be a key piece of your logistics strategy, it’s not the only thing you need in your tech stack. Things work better when they’re connected, which is why EasyPost Enterprise works with many leading business platforms. It integrates with tools such as the following:

  • Enterprise resource planning systems (ERP)
  • Order management systems (OMS)
  • Warehouse management systems (WMS)
  • Warehouse control systems (WCS)

EasyPost Enterprise also connects with ecommerce platforms, allowing shoppers to see accurate shipping costs and tracking numbers no matter where they’re located.


Data visibility is key to improving shipping performance. Without detailed reporting on order accuracy, package tracking, shipping costs, and more, you’ll struggle to know what’s working and what’s not.

White-glove implementation and responsive customer service

Switching to new software can feel like moving house. When you move, your once-organized life becomes a blur of chaos, confusion, and little inefficiencies. (Think: forgetting what box you packed your toothbrush in.) 

When you adopt new shipping software, you might worry that your teams will face similar chaos. But the EasyPost Enterprise implementation specialists act as professional “movers” who make sure implementation goes off without a hitch.

We’ll install the system and help you get integrations set up. Because we understand that no two companies are alike, we customize the solution to your needs. The best part? EasyPost Enterprise is flexible enough that you can adapt your strategy as shipping volume increases.

When you need to get in touch, our U.S.-based support team is just a phone call or email away, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. 

Benefits of using EasyPost Enterprise

Hopefully the features above speak for themselves. But in case you still have questions, here’s the at-a-glance version of the benefits that come from using our web-based shipping software. 

  • Improved efficiency. High-speed, sub-second processing time can handle sudden spikes in order volume. Whether you ship 5,000 or 750,000 orders a day or more, EasyPost Enterprise has you covered.

And there’s no better way to create a stellar delivery experience than by sending an order on time, to the right place, for a low shipping cost (or no cost to the customer). With EasyPost Enterprise, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do. 
  • Fast ROI. “What’s the ROI?” It’s the question on everyone’s mind when exploring a new software solution. Our shippers see ROI (return on investment) quickly—usually in six to eight months.
