“Customers want their packages faster than ever. Prime style delivery has set the bar high, making the delivery experience as important as product selection or check-out. Unfortunately, now that Merchants are seeing an explosion in demand for ecommerce experiences, the incumbent carriers are throttling capacity, raising prices and subverting a branded experience” explained Chris Guggenheim, Founder and Executive Chair at X™. His solution? “We built a first-of-its-kind national carrier platform that unlocks nearly unlimited capacity to provide high-quality, flexible and transparent delivery for our clients and their customers. I’m thrilled to have this seasoned group of executives joining the team to help us deliver on our mission to Reimagine Delivery.”

 

 

Why are top ecommerce brands switching to X Delivery™?

If your company ships 500+ packages per day, you need to learn why today’s high-growth brands are switching to X Delivery™:

  • X™ provides nationwide ecommerce delivery. You don’t need to build your own first, middle, and last mile logistics solution.
  • Warehouse-to-customer. X Delivery™ streamlines nation-wide shipments, limiting the need to store inventory in multiple warehouses.
  • Intelligent, API-connected network allows for sophisticated routing that decreases time in transit and increases cost efficiency.
  • X Delivery™ is building a clear, real-time tracking experience, helping clients stay connected to their customers.
  • We are making 2-Day Delivery the gold standard. X Delivery™ is obsessed with customer satisfaction and believes all shipments should arrive in 2 days or less.
  • Reduce emissions by up to 70% in the mid-mile. X Delivery™ has unlocked spare capacity within the national air carrier network to reduce the emissions when compared to inefficient hub-and-spoke carriers.1
  • It’s easy to get started!  X works with leading shipping software that you may already be using and partners with proven shipping partners to truck, sort, fly and deliver to your customers
