Unishippers was created with the simple idea that by partnering with major shipping suppliers and reselling their services, decreased discounts and increased levels of customer service would be passed on to small and medium-sized businesses. Unishippers listens to the pain points within a company’s current shipping process, and then uses a streamlined method to help them scale their business to provide rates and customer service generally reserved for Fortune 500 companies. As advocates for small business, Unishippers will work directly with proven carrier partners to provide correct information they need to ensure any red flags are addressed.
