Shipping and logistics conglomerate UPS has partnered with eCommerce technology company Inxeption to allow businesses to market and distribute products on multiple online channels from one secure place.
The platform integration, called Inxeption Zippy, will enable manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers to set up a company-branded website. In addition, they can list, market and sell their products to customers, while the blockchain-backed technology keeps sensitive information secure.
“We’re revolutionizing B2B eCommerce and bringing companies and their customers together online in a trusted manner,” Farzad Dibachi, CEO of Inxeption, said in a press release. “This relationship creates simplified pricing solutions for B2B merchants with limited digital marketing and IT resources to easily manage all aspects of selling and shipping from one secure place.”
Merchants can also now receive competitive UPS global shipping, tracking and logistics services. They can access a suite of sales and supply chain management capabilities for building a web page and uploading product information, scheduling orders and shipments, monitoring returns, managing purchase orders and multimodal shipments, processing transactions, conducting search engine marketing, and reviewing sales and marketing analytics.
“The growth of eCommerce is driving B2B buyers to expect the same fast and convenient shopping experiences that consumers enjoy,” said Kevin Warren, chief marketing officer for UPS. “Working with Inxeption is another way we’re creating innovative solutions that helps small businesses deliver quality service for their customers and succeed in eCommerce.”
Just last year, UPS launched Ware2Go, a new company that provides an online platform linking businesses with available warehouse space and fulfillment services. The platform will primarily target B2B eCommerce companies.
“Ware2Go uses innovative online technology to match excess warehouse and fulfillment capacity with merchant demand to provide transparent inventory, order fulfillment and final delivery,” UPS Chief Transformation and Strategy Officer Scott Price said at the time. “We’re solving two major problems: speed to market and efficient warehousing.”
