Overview

Overview

ID530 is our UPS integration with e-automate and ID531 is FedEx. We have been searching for a solution for address corrections where we see clients paying hundreds of dollars in address correction fees each month (https://hub.ceojuice.com/blog/shipping-incorrect-address-charges). This is an integration with OnShip (onshipgroup.com). OnShip allows you to shop for the lowest shipping cost. You can select the carrier with the lowest cost or choose to always ship with your preferred carrier. 

It also works for LTL shipments (freight) and that can get into some big savings on machines being shipped out.  For our Canadian clients, it supports Purolator, for our Mid-West clients, they integrate with SpeeDee.

OnShip has address correction built-in and we can write the corrected address back to e-automate, along with tracking numbers and other package data. We will report what OnShip is saving you each month on their lower rates plus show how much you saved on address correction charges. 

OnShip is waiving their monthly fee for CEO Juice clients and allows you to either use your existing UPS / FedEx account, or try theirs if they offer better rates. We are pooling our clients' buying power to get better shipping rates. We see our average client pay about $500 per month in address correction fees.

As with all of our integrations, this is included in your monthly fee. Please subscribe to ID34 and complete the OnShip form to get started:
