AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/13 -- Postmaster (www.postmaster.io), an intelligent, cross-carrier platform and API for small parcel shipments, has been selected by leading regional shipping carrier Lone Star Overnight (LSO) to enhance its online shipping portal. With Postmaster, Lone Star Overnight's customers may now access LSO, UPS, USPS, FedEx, and Canada Post through the white-labeled portal, customized to enhance the LSO customer experience from one convenient and secure location. The integration brings multi-carrier shipping capabilities previously accessible only to enterprise shippers to merchants of all sizes.

The partnership with LSO is Postmaster's first direct engagement with a shipping carrier and represents a unique offering to LSO's customers. LSO can now offer its customers the convenience of accessing all carriers from a single, secure location, simplifying shipping processes and accessing the best shipping solution for their needs with each and every shipment. The Postmaster-powered portal benefits customers with more visibility across rates and routes, allows LSO to provide greater value, competitiveness and service to its customers, all while allowing them access to more sophisticated capabilities that large shippers currently enjoy and use to competitive advantage. "We were thrilled when we realized how Postmaster could help improve our customer experience by providing a multi-carrier system for the masses," said Rick Jones, CEO of LSO. "We believe that customers always benefit by having access to more than one carrier and LSO proudly serves as a complementary regional carrier to the national carriers. In our high speed, technology-driven world, flexibility is more important than ever and single-sourced carriers rarely produce the optimum solution. By having access to Postmaster's portal, LSO customers have the ability to choose the right carrier for each shipping situation -- all from one convenient, simple portal."

"Our partnership with Lone Star Overnight is a win-win for everyone involved," said Jesse Lovelace, CEO and Co-Founder of Postmaster. "Postmaster will gain access to a wealth of shipping data instantly for even greater route optimization -- not only for LSO customers, but for all Postmaster merchants. Additionally, this is the first simple and truly cross-carrier portal on the market for the public, solving some inherent issues that result from how siloed the carriers have traditionally been from one another."

Postmaster is an intelligent, cloud-based shipping platform that gives merchants a simple, cross-carrier API for shipping. It saves time and money throughout the lifecycle of shipping by eliminating the need to integrate and keep compliant with each carrier's label requirements individually, and harnesses data across shipments to optimize the route and cost of each package. Postmaster is ideal for eCommerce developers and merchants, and aims to bring all of North America's regional carriers onto the playing field with the big three.
