nShift (www.nshift.com), global provider of cloud delivery management solutions for e-commerce shops, retailers, manufacturers and 3PL companies, announces its launch.

With over 100+ pre-built third-party integrations into e-commerce and other shippers’ most critical IT systems and an unmatched carrier library delivering connectivity into over 700+ carriers, nShift offers customers an end-to-end cloud platform to automate and optimize the entire delivery management process – from label creation to delivery tracking and last mile logistics to returns management. nShift’s solutions have successfully enabled almost 1 billion annual shipments globally for e-commerce shops, retailers, manufacturers and 3PL companies. Through its extensive carrier library, nShift has unparalleled shipping visibility and reach, unlocking significant scalability for its customers – from 1 to millions of shipments annually – across the globe.

“I am extremely honored and excited to be joining nShift at such a pivotal time in its growth,” said Lars Pedersen, who was recently appointed CEO of nShift. “While our name is changing, we are more committed than ever to continuing to provide the vital connectivity in delivery management, visibility, and efficiency for which our 90,000+ customers rely on us. We are thrilled to announce our new brand together with our latest e-commerce innovations, nShift Checkout and nShift Return (formerly known as Returnado). Our platform enables customers to worry less and ship smarter with up to 10-20% higher e-commerce-shop conversions, 60% fewer delivery related support calls, and 30% increase in repurchase rates on returned products.”

Returnado’s returns expertise spans marquee brands such as Helly Hansen and Asket and demonstrates its significant capabilities to serve a very complicated portion of the logistics value chain.

Marlin Equity Partners and Francisco Partners, two of the world's leading technology investors, will remain the majority stakeholders in nShift.

Today, e-commerce and other shippers have a singular platform from which they can eliminate geographical barriers to growth and drive supply chain efficiency and visibility all while improving the overall delivery experience for constituents across the logistics value chain.”

Petri Oksanen, a Partner at Francisco Partners, added, “This is an exciting step forward and the beginning of the next chapter of transformational growth for nShift. With the recent acquisition and integration of Returnado, we are in a position now more than ever to continue to deliver the very best solutions for our customers and help them solve first-to-last mile logistics challenges, deliver tangible cost savings, and drive innovation in our industry.”
