Helping businesses craft an
exceptional last mile
What Keeps Us Going
At LateShipment.com, we are driven by an overarching mission to bring more transparency to the world of shipping. We recognise that businesses, despite paying for shipping, have very little control over their shipping carriers and strive to fix that power imbalance.
Our groundbreaking delivery management solutions help retailers seamlessly create post-purchase experiences, while our automated parcel audit solutions help bring better performance accountability to the last mile and recover millions of dollars in shipping refunds for businesses around the world.
The Story of
A random account review meeting with a FedEx representative takes place in a retail manufacturing company. The representative inadvertently blurts out that though refunds for service failures are possible, the process is deliberately designed to be complicated to dissuade claims from customers.
The Scale of the Problem
A manual claim submitted to FedEx by the retail manufacturing company and followed up from start to finish takes up to 21 days to process and costs almost as much as the claim value itself.
LateShipment.com is unofficially born as a side project of the development team of the company. It attempts automating the claim process to make it cost effective for the business.
Rite of Passage
The first completely automated claim is submitted to FedEx by our algorithms and approved.
LateShipment.com expands its offering to include automated claims for UPS, which has a similarly convoluted submission process.
Above & Beyond
Upon request, the project is passed on to around 40 different manufacturers, retailers, and distributors.
