Easyship and Pitney Bowes Partner to Provide Ecommerce Sellers with a Better Way to Ship


Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides
commerce solutions in the areas of shipping and mailing, data,
ecommerce, and financing, and Easyship,
a leader in global ecommerce shipping, have partnered to provide
merchants with seamless access to a host of tools and technology that
better enable domestic and cross-border commerce. The Pitney Bowes
Carrier Connect platform (formerly shipping APIs) is available
immediately for Easyship customers and no downtime is required for
software updates. Merchants are able to ship worldwide in minutes by
leveraging Easyship's platform.

"Easyship has long made it the top priority to put customers first and
address their biggest challenges with best-in-class technology," said
Augustin Ceyrac, Co-founder, Easyship. "For many small and medium-sized
businesses, disconnected systems, manual processes, inefficient
operations, and high shipping costs are among the top barriers to
profitable growth. Pitney Bowes is helping Easyship help our customers
overcome those challenges and ensure that smaller shippers can get the
same efficiencies as big retailers and brands."

"This is an exciting partnership for Pitney Bowes. Easyship not only
shares our client-first commitment, they share our vision for moving the
entire shipping and ecommerce industry forward through innovation," said
Rajeeb Mohapatra, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Shipping
Solutions, Pitney Bowes. "We're excited about helping small and
medium-sized ecommerce merchants improve customer experiences, so they
can grow and reach more consumers."

Pitney Bowes launched Carrier Connect in 2016 and quickly set its
solution apart by offering guaranteed delivery services and flexible
financing options on a modern RESTful web services architecture that
makes it easy for customers to integrate and scale. Carrier Connect
provides compliance, integration and label generation for merchants
looking to leverage the benefits of USPS shipping, delivery and tracking
services. In addition, it can provide merchants with access to a wide
array of ecommerce logistics services. With Carrier Connect, developers
and merchants are able to simply do more business.
