Brookfield, Wis., August 15, 2019 - ProShip, Inc., the most trusted global provider of automated multi-carrier shipping software, today announced that GNC, a global health and wellness brand, has chosen ProShip as its multi-carrier shipping software. The solution is scheduled to be implemented in three US-based distribution centers with the goal of adding ship-from-store functionality in 400+ GNC retail locations in the future.
GNC will seamlessly integrate ProShip Multi-Carrier Shipping Software into its enterprise technology stack and utilize ProShip's innovative shipping capabilities such as Advanced Date Shopping (an advanced form of rate shopping), international shipping and compliant labeling. This solution will allow the retailer to ship more efficiently, save on shipping costs and ultimately exceed customer expectations.
"At GNC, we focus on delivering high quality, innovative products to our customers, and our current e-commerce shipping functionality just isn't scaling to keep up with industry expectations," said Ryan Ostrom, Chief Brand Officer of GNC. "The addition of ProShip will provide us with a more robust solution offering an elevated level of distribution efficiency, carrier integrations and quality support, helping us exceed customer expectations."
"It's an honor to be chosen by such a forward-thinking retailer who understands the value in omni-channel business. With e-commerce on the rise, this venture truly demonstrates GNC's commitment to convenience and providing consumers with unique shopping experiences," said Matt Mullen, senior vice president and general manager of ProShip, Inc.
After initial implementation of shipping engines for five carriers inside its distribution centers, GNC hopes to expand functionality and become a leader in ship-from-store capabilities.
