MetaPack launch Carrier Mapping Tool

No primary category set

At The Delivery Conference Today, MetaPack unveiled a new Carrier Mapping Tool which brings together a complex web of data on every route and service offered by carriers

The information is presented in four different categories: ‘category leader’, ‘certified carrier services’, ‘platform’ and ‘low or no volume’. This enables ecommerce retailers and brands to make choices, against clear criteria, from thousands of different propositions.

Data comes from Metapack’s own customers – they have around 90 of the top 100 retailers in the UK and shipped some 600 million parcels last year so it’s a comprehensive data set. The tool also ensures that any SLA published is backed up by the MetaPack certification programme – This will be a major benefit to retailers and brands who will know that the services on offer are always fit-for-purpose and ready for use.

“Our objective was to collate the many different variables, the vast array of service terms, and the myriad of carrier capabilities into a single, authoritative solution that was straightforward and quick to use.”
– Alexei Haigh, Global Head of Carrier Product at MetaPack

MetaPack Carrier Mapping will contain all UK origin and destination data. MetaPack will also demonstrate a large part of the European origin and destination data. This will be completed with the rest of the world by the end of the quarter.

“Our intention is not just to provide the most rigorous, informative service, but to continue enriching the MetaPack Carrier Mapping tool with a deep level of information and assistance. We want to improve the speed to switch for retailers, and highlight carrier services that have previously found it difficult to gain any exposure. Delivery is such a key differentiator in the eCommerce landscape, and this service will allow retailers to sharpen their delivery offers and vastly improve the cost to serve.”
– Alexei Haigh, Global Head of Carrier Product at MetaPack

At it’s basic level, this tool will suit SME retailers who simply want to choose a reliable service to a certain country. However by publishing their comprehensive carrier label library MetaPack have made a huge amount of data available for larger retailers to analyse.

The Carrier Mapping Tool is freely available on the web with no passwords or registrations needed.
