Manage shipping easily with nShift


Managing transport administration can feel overwhelming with all that it entails today. Customers expect it to go fast, be smooth and with clear information. Managing all steps with shipping manually is in principle virtually impossible for larger companies.

There is a lot to keep track of when a delivery is to be carried out. Has the customer entered a valid postal code? The customer is in the EU, what do I need for customs? How do I get good shipping labels? How do I handle a possible return? These are just some of the things you need to know.

nShift gives you the opportunity to manage the entire transport chain with the least possible effort for you as an e-retailer. The whole process can be handled automatically, completely or partially.

nShift currently consists of four former leading companies in the industry, Unifaun, Consignor, Transsmart and Returnado. This means that it has more than 50 years of experience in the industry and is by far Europe’s largest supplier of TA systems with more than 90,000 customers. It handles almost 1 billion deliveries per year. With this comes a width that is beneficial for small and large e-retailers, regardless of which transport company you want to use.

nShift Delivery

Higher conversion

Half of all shopping carts are abandoned and one of the biggest reasons for this is that there are no delivery options that suit the customer. With nShift’s cloud-based platform, you can handle everything related to transportation. 

With a dynamic checkout solution and many connected carriers, this means that you as an e-retailer can offer customers the most relevant delivery alternative and what they feel safe with. Fewer abandoned shopping carts.

Eliminate errors

Manual errors can create headaches and be time consuming when it comes to deliveries. With nShift’s platform, validation of addresses is handled completely automatically, which gives you as a trader more time to handle the important job.

All documents immediately

All documentation and all labels are created in real time in the system. You do not need to spend time creating the correct documentation for the correct shipment. When the shipment is ready, everything is already created for you, customs documentation, labels and other documents that may be needed.

Easy return handling

Do you handle many returns? With nShift, you can give the customer more control over any return and automate many of the steps. You can use the platform to embed self-help for returns on your site. You do not have to spend a bunch of time matching returns to orders, a simple scan of the return label gives you all the information you need.

Track your shipments

See the location and status of all your shipments, at any time. Your customer service saves time by not having to deal with anxious customers who wonder where their goods are, they can track the shipment themselves. You can also make this experience more personal with brand-specific communication adaptations.
