Rakuten Super Logistics’ release of Xparcel Ground and Xparcel Expedited is changing the game of shipping for the entire industry. The Xparcel shipping software is optimized for the point of origin and the point of destination. It automatically analyzes data from multiple sources, including common carriers and the Rakuten Super Logistics’ database, to find the quickest and most affordable shipping route available. eCommerce retailers finally have a cost-effective way to improve shipping speed, no matter where their customers live in the US.
Here’s what you need to know about these new, cutting-edge services.
How long will it take Xparcel shipments to be delivered?
For clients utilizing Xparcel Ground, shipments have an average 3-8 day transit. For those enrolled in Xparcel Expedited, shipments have an average 2-5 day transit. Whichever service your business chooses to use gives you access to our nationwide network of fulfillment centers and carriers. This allows you to deliver your orders more quickly, while also keeping your overhead shipping costs down.

How will Xparcel determine the best shipping method?
Xparcel is designed to look at package size, point of origin and the destination. Xparcel will also take into consideration dimensional weight, oversize fees and any seasonal surcharges when selecting the ideal shipping method.
Is Xparcel only available for packages of a certain weight?
Xparcel was built to serve all your shipping needs and was calculated specifically for products up to 25lbs. However, the most efficient “sweet spot” is for packages up to 10lbs. Although this shipping software works best for lighter packages, the system can still be utilized for packages up to 150 lbs. Xparcel Expedited and Xparcel Ground will default to UPS Ground for packages over 25lbs instead of using local carriers.

Who is the carrier for my Xparcel packages?
The beauty of Xparcel is that the technology automatically selects the best carrier(s) who can meet your ideal delivery timeframe and cost based on where the origin and destination of the package is. We use a basket of carriers including UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS to accomplish this, but any single package could use them, a combination of them, or another regional carrier.
Shipping is a significant part of any eCommerce business. And our goal is to help you minimize the stress of your logistics and meet the needs of your customers. With Xparcel, you no longer have to worry about spending time looking for the best deal on your orders. Our system can ease you of this burden and ensure you receive the best shipping times and costs, no matter where your customers are located.
