Worldwide Express, a Dallas-based package shipping firm and one of the largest UPS express service resellers, has launched an enhanced version of its shipping technology platforms, SpeedShip 2.0 and SpeedFreight 2.0.
“Historically, most shipping companies have set up their UPS customers on SpeedShip 1.0,” said David R. Kiger, chief executive officer, who founded Worldwide Express in 1995. “Moving forward, all of Worldwide Express’ UPS customers will gain the advantages of SpeedShip 2.0.”
The main advantage of the new version is the ability to set up distinct preferences per login. Version 2.0 was created to provide more control from the admin level and overall improved usability, the company said.
The earlier versions, SpeedShip 1.0 and SpeedFreight 1.0, will remain operational, but new Worldwide Express customers will be introduced to the 2.0 technology. Current customers will adopt versions 2.0 over time, and plans for a new version is already in development.
“Worldwide Express will be able to smoothly transition current customers to the improved platforms,” Kiger said. “Both SpeedShip and SpeedFreight offer the ability to import addresses from 1.0 to 2.0 with one click of a button.”
