Introducing EasyPost's new smartrate api

LEHI, Utah, May 12, 2021 — EasyPost, a leading provider of shipping APIs that solve complex logistics problems for online merchants, today launches SmartRate, a new API that provides shippers with highly accurate shipment-level transit times based on a historical analysis of billions of shipments across all major and regional carriers. Using SmartRate, merchants can save up to 70% on optimized shipments.

"On-time deliveries are the key to customer satisfaction and repeat business," said Jarrett Streebin, Founder and CEO of EasyPost. "Whether it's next day, 2 day, or ground, it's all about meeting customer expectations. The SmartRate API is the data product ecommerce businesses can't survive without."

Specifically, SmartRate helps shippers:

  • Save Money on Shipping - SmartRate provides transit time predictions across a variety of on-time delivery percentiles so customers can choose the lowest-cost option that meets their deliverability criteria
  • Improve On-Time Delivery - SmartRate uses historical carrier performance, coupled with a sophisticated predictive data model to estimate time in transit, resulting in higher accuracy predictions than using carrier estimates alone
  • Enhance the End-Customer Experience - SmartRate unlocks the ability to provide highly accurate delivery estimates for every shipping option being offered at checkout

EasyPost will be providing additional details on SmartRate via a webinar on May 19, 2021 at 11 a.m. PST. The session will feature a detailed overview of the SmartRate API, how it all works under the hood, as well as a live demo and Q&A session. Those interested in attending can watch here.
