A simple concept and a structure that enables growth and success.

Unishippers is focused on just one thing: helping small and medium-sized businesses save money on their shipping
needs while also giving them the exceptional service they deserve. For 30 years, we've perfected the model
for making that work:

1
Unishippers leverages the combined shipping volume of more than 50,000 customers to negotiate great rates
with our network of carriers, and ensures that each customer gets the best possible rates.
2
Unishippers partners with reliable, major carriers, including UPS®, Saia®, YRC Freight, Estes and UPS Freight® to
handle the pickup, transport and delivery of customers' shipments. The carriers do all of the heavy lifting, while you
provide the support and savings.
3
Unishippers provides customers a complete portfolio of shipping services and flexible shipping solutions -
all from one company, and with just one consolidated bill.
4
Unishippers develops and maintains proprietary, customer-facing shipping programs and internal CRM and
billing systems, and also offers ongoing training to assist franchisees with managing their business.
5
Unishippers provides leading edge, easy-to-use transportation management systems, such as Express Manager
and Freight Manager, to help customers manage their shipping more easily.
6
Franchisees identify small- and mid-sized businesses, assess their shipping needs, and present a custom
proposal for shipping services.
7
Franchisees set the customer up to start shipping, and provide them with the supplies, training, and access to
online shipping tools they will need.
8
Franchisees provide their customers with exceptional customer service, support and shipping consultancy that
they simply can't get if they go directly to the carriers.
