From small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to warehouse shippers, Auctane’s expansive portfolio of products can cater to any business with mailing and shipping needs. Its suite of technology includes intuitive shipping software, a network of 3PL providers, and also products that facilitate same-day delivery.

In 2021, the company stated that its businesses facilitate over $200 billion in sales in the United States and had delivered to more than 90 percent of American households – a number that has only shown upward growth since then.
Some of its most noteworthy products include ShipStation, Stamps.com, ShipEngine, ShippingEasy, Metapack, Endicia, and GlobalPost. ShipStation is a leading web-based order management and shipping software that was specifically designed to help retailers make shipping efficient and cost-effective.

It’s undoubtedly the platform of choice for world-class shipping, as its mission states. While ShipStation is a cloud-based application with a state-of-the-art interface, ShipEngine is the premier shipping API that businesses can integrate into existing technology.
On October 19, 2022, Auctane further strengthened its mission of delivering better shipping experiences for customers. The company announced that it had landed a vital deal with the United States Postal Service, which would allow it to hold true to its promise of providing customers with the best possible rates.
The deal is significant because the USPS shelved its reseller program earlier in the same month. In a nutshell, the program allowed third-party companies to be given commercial rates from UPS, FedEx, and USPS, by cutting out the middleman. With the new agreement, Auctane can offer its shippers, and retailers USPS Connect rates for e-commerce.
Auctane’s products are revered by both regional and global businesses as the backbone of their shipping and logistics services. Its solutions help businesses ensure customer satisfaction at reasonable rates, hence proving that it is a force to reckon with.
