Descartes buys ShipRush

Descartes Systems has bought ShipRush, the US-based provider of e-commerce multi-carrier parcel shipping solutions for small-to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Explaining the reasonable behind the deal, Ken Wood, EVP of Product Management at Descartes, said:  “Without a comprehensive omni-channel strategy that includes advanced parcel shipping capabilities, e-commerce retailers and SMBs alike can be left with escalating costs and poor delivery execution that can impact customer satisfaction. ShipRush’s solutions help address this problem with tools to integrate with front-end commerce systems and parcel shipping providers for seamless package labelling, rating, tracking and postage processing.”

Descartes bought Seattle-headquartered ShipRush for an up-front consideration of around  US$14m.
