- Walmart 2 day Shipping Option: Walmart now offers a free 2-day shipping option. In order to be able to offer this to the largest area possible that I can reach in 2 days by still sending our product ground rates - I need to leverage both UPS and FedEx. Our preferred carrier is UPS and we have lower negotiated rates with them, however FedEx offers a larger footprint for shipping ground. So when it is outside of the footprint that UPS can reach with their ground service, I need to switch to FedEx. This should be able to determined by the estimated delivery date that each service would provide. This allows me to offer my products to the largest selection of customers at the lowest price possible.
- Shipping 101: This is a very basic shipping need when running shipping for a company. We are moving from Shipworks to Shipping Easy and had this option before. It should not be something we have to give up. As the Walmart 2-day shipping becomes even bigger, this will be a deal breaker for me and I am sure other clients.
