CommerceHub, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHUBA) (NASDAQ:CHUBK) ("CommerceHub") and Convey, Inc., today announced a strategic partnership in which CommerceHub will augment its distributed commerce platform with Convey's active delivery management solution.

The joint offering will provide CommerceHub's omnichannel retail clients end-to-end visibility and control over drop ship orders fulfilled by CommerceHub, from the supplier to the carrier to the customer, to enable an exceptional last-mile delivery experience.

"Our retail customers want to grow their business while providing an exceptional customer experience. Last mile delivery issues stand in the way of that, leading to lost sales and even lost customers," said Richard Jones, Co-founder and CTO at CommerceHub. "Our retailers need the same visibility and control over carrier transit and delivery as they have over supplier processing. The integration of Convey with the CommerceHub platform will help retailers provide an exceptional order-to-door experience across all shipments -- from sofas to toasters, and from LTL to parcel."

With Convey, CommerceHub will provide the cost benefit of a network of carriers with the control and ease of a single carrier relationship. Retailers will be able to actively monitor and manage shipments and proactively communicate with consumers and carrier partners as needed.

Benefits will include:
  • Real-time shipment tracking and exception monitoring across a wide range of carriers
  • Proactive consumer communication and alerting
  • Branded tracking pages for consumers
  • Improved carrier collaboration and outcomes
  • Consumer delivery experience feedback

"In the past, retailers lacked real-time visibility into delivery issues that might come up along the way, putting service level agreements and consumer promises at risk," said Rob Taylor, CEO at Convey, Inc. "CommerceHub customers will now be able to proactively manage the consumer experience, from the point a supplier hands off an order to a carrier, to the final delivery at a customer's doorstep."
