Partnership provides peace of mind for small-to-medium-sized ecommerce businesses by scaling logistics and driving expedited growth

TORONTO – August 31, 2021Bolt Logistics (Bolt), a leading Canadian technology-enabled logistics and last-mile delivery provider, and Freightcom Inc.

This partnership will be a critical differentiator in providing organizations with peace of mind with their logistics and fulfillment, while simultaneously improving their customer experience. 

As competition in the ecommerce space grows, it has never been more important for businesses of all sizes to partner with organizations that maximize business outcomes, drive revenue, and improve operational workflow.

Freightcom provides Bolt customers a competitive edge through seamless integration into one of the most advanced shipping platforms in Canada. Bolt provides Freightcom customers that are growing out of self-fulfillment with access to warehousing and logistic solutions supporting their pathway to continued growth. Together, they will give small-to-medium-sized businesses the ability to automate their end-to-end logistics workflow, allowing them to focus on other critical business objectives.

Key highlights of the partnership include:

  • Reduced domestic and international shipping costs through leading-edge software that provides access to the best shipping rates
  • End-to-end fulfillment and inventory management
  • Integrated and custom storage and shipping solutions 
  • Systematic and intuitive order fulfillment flow
  • Quick turnaround times and more reliable coverage for customers.

“As the economy begins to recover from the effects of the pandemic, we are seeing many small to medium-sized businesses struggle to balance volume and capacity,” said Mark Ang, CEO, Bolt. “Mom-and-pop shops are not only the backbone of the Canadian economy but also the heart of local communities. We are proud to partner with Freightcom to provide best-in-class fulfillment  quality and process-driven returns management to those who need it most.”

“Logistics can be complicated during the best of times, and we are thrilled to team up with Bolt to provide industry-leading solutions that make this process more efficient and effective from coast to coast,” said Turab Kermally, president, Freightcom. “We look forward to continuing  our support of small-to-medium-sized businesses by providing leading edge shipping solutions for ecommerce platforms and marketplaces.”
