Multi-Carrier Shipping System Integrates Third Party Parcel Insurance Options for Shipping Savings

Use Integrated Third Party Insurance Options For Additional Shipping Savings
FORT MYERS, FL — February 22, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software provided detailed information about alternate parcel insurance options integrated into its multi-carrier Computerized Parcel System (CPS™). By integrating these third party insurance options into CPS, shippers can insure packages using one of the alternate insurance companies, providing shippers with package insurance protection when needed, but at a significant savings compared to similar protection when purchased directly from the parcel carriers.

“We’ve seen increased interest in third party parcel insurance recently because shippers continue to look for ways to cut costs without sacrificing service. Most third party insurers charge significantly less for package insurance than the carriers do. By aggregating those savings on a large scale, shippers will realize cost savings without any reduction in service quality,” said Cary Cobb, Harvey Software’s Director of Digital Marketing. “In many multi-carrier shipping systems, a user may need to use a separate web site or program to use these third party insurance services. At Harvey Software, we recognize the need to save time on this process, so we integrated multiple options of third party parcel insurance, including PIP, Shipsurance, and U-PIC, into our main interface. Processing alternate parcel insurance is part of the normal End-of-Day processing in CPS, so shippers have all of the data and reporting needed for each alternate insurance company. Integrated third party insurance processing is another way that CPS makes it easier to ship efficiently and achieves the goal of saving money and time,” concluded Mr. Cobb.
