How to Configure Rating Rules in ShipHawk

You ask, we answer. ShipHawk’s Q&A series uses questions that our team has been asked over and over again by businesses looking for ways to optimize their fulfillment operation.

With ShipHawk, eCommerce businesses have the power to configure shipping rules to automatically choose the cheapest and best rate for a proposed shipment. Using those customizable shipping rules and enforcing them means you don’t have to worry about your warehouse team selecting a more expensive carrier or making a manual mistake.

Configurable rating rules are essential for reducing shipping costs and increasing order throughput. Benefits include:

  • Configuring rating rules puts you in control. ShipHawk enables you to create a rule that selects the cheapest and best rate for a proposed shipment. What’s more, with an automated shipping software, you can enforce those business rules and rest easy knowing your team is using the optimal rates
  • No additional IT development needed. Easily create and edit business rules that fit your business’ custom needs all without additional IT support 
  • Automate order processing and remove manual decisions. Without configurable business rules, the burden falls on warehouse workers to manually make these decisions with each proposed shipment. This can result in costly errors and much slow order processing times 

Don’t just take it from us. ShipHawk customer Hammer Nutrition had this to say about the benefits of shipping rules: “The fluidity of ShipHawk for our IT team has been huge,” said Brandon Harrell. “They’ve been able to take the shipping policy and actually enforce it. It has made our lives so much easier knowing packages are going out the right way.”
