Sendle Delivery Van Concept on a Bright Sunny Day

Sendle Raising Shipping Rates on January 23, 2023

Sendle announced on Wednesday that new shipping rates will go into effect on January 23, 2023.

On average, the carrier said rates are going up by 6%, but shippers will still save as much as 83% compared to other carriers.

While Sendle appears to be comparing their rates to other carrier retail rates, most professional shippers receive discounts, so the actual savings shippers see with Sendle is probably less.

The strength of Sendle is its simple pricing, which compares favorably with USPS flat rate boxes without having to worry about having the special boxes from the U.S. Postal Service.

Sendle started out primarily using USPS for shipments, but since it has launched in the U.S., it has now expanded its offering on the West Coast in partnership with GLS to offer expedited delivery services.

Last year, the carrier also launched a Simple Returns option, enabling small business sellers to offer easy returns for their customers.

And in 2022, Sendle opened its Canadian operations, supporting small business shippers North of the Border. Hopefully, one day, the carrier will be able to offer cross-border shipments between the U.S. and Canada.

Sendle – Carbon Neutral Delivery Solution

One of the unique aspects of Sendle is that they are the first 100% carbon-neutral small parcel shipping solution in the U.S., enabling eco-conscious small businesses to access sustainable shipping.

While Sendle uses regular carrier partners, it offsets the carbon emissions by supporting projects that reduce emissions, such as regenerating precious forests, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping.

So, while the on average 6% rate increase is going to affect small businesses already struggling with shipping costs, overall, it is slightly less than USPS, UPS, and FedEx announced. And with Sendle, shippers get a much simpler way to ship while doing good for the plant.
