The Challenge

Urban EDC Supply is a small, dedicated team that curates a selection of high quality, handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces including custom knives, multi-tools, tactical keychains and more. With weekly product releases and a swiftly growing inventory, Urban EDC Supply experienced an explosion of customer demand and online orders requiring safe and secure transportation to their customers’ destinations. They needed a reliable insurance option that could keep up with their growing business.

Prior to working with EasyPost, Urban EDC Supply ate the cost whenever a package was damaged or went missing. Considering on average one in ten packages are damaged in transit, the brand faced costly corrections and increasingly frustrated customers with their rapidly growing product offerings. As their business and order volume increased, they found that it was labor-intensive and time-consuming to track down packages with damages or that went missing in transit. Filing insurance claims with shipping providers proved frustrating due to the cumbersome submission process and lengthy period leading to reimbursement. Instead of settling with mediocre, time consuming service, they sought out a better way to process insurance claims with EasyPost’s Insurance API.
