Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Isn't this just glorified rate shopping?

A: No. Rates are just one of many variables and constraints to consider when deciding which carrier service to use and when. These decisions require intelligence that frankly outstrips human decision-making ability.

Q: How hard is it to change business rules?

A: It's easy. While most legacy shipping systems require scripting language knowledge to make system modifications, a non-programmer can configure Sendflex instruction sets using simple dropdown menus.

Q: Do I have to use your shipping management system, or can I use the one I have?

A: We offer multi-carrier shipping capabilities, but any shipping system can use our APIs to apply instructions to their workflows.
