New feature: Shipping Rate Estimator

Dec 2, 2022





Shipping rates are complicated and change with every package. As one of the most complex factors in order fulfillment, it’s critical to have a holistic picture of your shipping expenses and an accurate way to predict them. This is why we’ve rolled out an all-new Shipping Rate Estimator in our dashboard.

Introducing the Airhouse Shipping Rate Estimator

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a new Shipping Rate Estimator in the app. This new feature allows you to estimate shipping costs for a single shipment based on the shipment’s destination (zip code), dimensions, and weight. This feature currently calculates estimates for packages shipping from and to the United States, with international rate estimates coming soon.

Shipping Rate Estimator with Airhouse

Using this tool, you can get better clarity into the full landed cost of a given shipment, which can be useful to understand how to create average shipping costs for your customers, and how much to invoice wholesale vendors and stockists. Because fuel and surcharges change frequently from shipping carriers, your landed cost estimate will include all of the following:

  • Base shipping label cost
  • Area surcharges
  • Handling surcharges
  • Fuel surcharges
  • Peak surcharges
  • Residential surcharges
  • Miscellaneous surcharges

Alongside Airhouse’s transparent billing approach and in-app invoicing, this is the first of many changes we’re rolling out over the coming months to grant deeper clarity into your fulfillment and operating costs.
