Product or service description

Sendcloud is the complete shipping platform that supports e-commerce shops of all sizes in scaling their shipping operations while delivering an exceptional customer experience.

As consumer delivery expectations continue to rise, having a streamlined shipping solution is essential to compete with industry giants. However, navigating the fragmented carrier landscape and complexities of cross-border shipping can be time-consuming and costly - often becoming a roadblock on the path to growth. Poor shipping processes are not only expensive, but can also result in negative reviews and damage customer trust. All this can hold e-commerce businesses back from reaching their full potential.

Sendcloud solves this by providing a wide range of tools that enable an exceptional shipping experience. The platform connects online retailers with 100+ carriers, 50+ integrations, 7,000+ shipping options and 400,000+ service points while automating the full post-purchase journey from checkout to returns. By unifying the entire shipping process into one easy-to-use dashboard, Sendcloud transforms e-commerce logistics from a bottleneck into an accelerator for growth. Backed by SoftBank and trusted by 25,000 companies across Europe, Sendcloud is on a mission to solve shipping globally.

Distinction from the competition

There’s plenty of shipping software out there, but at Sendcloud we truly believe that we offer the most complete solution on the market. Our platform is designed to grow with our customers as they scale, providing them the tools they need to not only manage today’s operations, but help them achieve tomorrow’s goals.

We enable online retailers to conquer the entire shipping process – from automated shipping methods, label printing, and order fulfillment to branded tracking and returns management. We even offer full-coverage parcel protection with a 1 day claim process to help mitigate the inevitable impact of lost and damaged packages. This means that e-commerce businesses no longer need to switch between systems to have complete control of their shipping process.

Product or service innovations

As the e-commerce landscape becomes increasingly competitive, online retailers are looking for any advantage they can get over their competition as they scale their business. One area full of untapped potential is improving the shipping process through more predictive data, efficient fulfillment, multi-carrier selection, and customized return options.

  • In July 2023, Sendcloud acquired Tracey – an advanced intelligence platform that provides online retailers with actionable data insights to improve their shipping experience. With the power of Tracey retailers gain access to more than just real-time parcel tracking, with additional insights into the performance of different carriers, proactive alerts in the case of delivery issues, AI-driven delivery predictions, and automated customer service workflows when something goes wrong.

  • Fulfilling orders more efficiently is a key component to keeping up with growing demand. Sendcloud's improved picking and packing solution, Pack & Go, enables expanding businesses to manage rising order volumes without increasing headcount or investing in complex systems. This year, we've added new modes to fit any workflow, reduce manual work for warehouse employees, and minimize the chance of human error.

  • Returns are a part of the shipping process that is often overlooked, but when done right can drive repeat sales. While Sendcloud customers were already able to accept returns via a personalized portal, we added a bunch of customization options that enable online businesses to further engage with their customers. The new return portal layout allows businesses to upload a background image, link their social channels, display product images, and detail return instructions – ensuring a memorable brand experience on this last leg of the shipping journey.

Customer case study

nkm grew from a home-based passion project into one of Germany's most sought-after natural skincare brands. Before Sendcloud, the owner of nkm spent an average of 10 hours per day packing orders and inputting addresses manually. While increasing order volumes were exciting, keeping up with the demand was becoming stressful.

After implementing Sendcloud’s shipping solution (which took about 30 minutes), the impact on day-to-day operations was immediate. Hours of manual data entry were replaced with automated label creation, allowing 3 times as many packages to be sent out every day.

As nkm kept growing and moved from fulfilling orders from home to a large fulfillment warehouse, Sendcloud provided them with the right tools to pick and pack more efficiently and automate shipping methods for international orders. Over the course of the partnership, nkm went from processing 20 orders per day to more than 2000.
