Optimizing your shipping cost with Yakit

Here are the tools Yakit provides to optimize your shipping cost, and to ensure that your buyers will see accurate shipping rates in the shopping cart.

Quoting in your shopping cart

Yakit gives quotes based on weight and anticipated dimensions.  Anticipated dimensions because during quoting time, the actual dimensions of the shipment are not know.  Yakit uses a proprietary machine learning algorithm to learn the dimensions of the shipment and applies it to the quote.


Enhancing your shopping cart conversions - with Yakit

The problem

Shipping cost and duties/taxes can add up to ~30% of your cart value.  Add to that the uncertainity of duties and taxes and your shopping cart "conversions" could be greatly affected.

The Yakit solution


Simple Shipping via a Yakit Hub

With Simple Shipping, you can simply send your international shipments one-by-one or grouped together to a Yakit selected Hub partner closest to you.  The Yakit Hub partner affixes your last mile labels, secures your shipments in a sturdy master box or pallet and sends them via Yakit logistics network.  You get the benefit of the logistics cost saving due to the aggregation done by the Yakit Hub partner.

If you have just a few shipments going to each Country/region (eg EU or AU) you will save money via Yakit Hubbing.
