Boxed, FedEx Team For Bulk Products

May 23, 2022

Boxed, an e-commerce grocery platform that sells bulk consumables and licenses its e-commerce software to enterprise retailers, started a new multi-year collaboration with FedEx, in which the carrier will now deliver most of Boxed’s customer shipments.

The mutually agreed upon increase in shipment volume will allow Boxed to reduce the amount it spends on transportation across all its fulfillment centers. The company will reinvest the capital saved in better pricing for customers and more promotions on the products they love. In addition, more Boxed customers will have access to seven day a week service.

“In this challenging supply chain environment, e-commerce companies are seeking new avenues to counter escalating costs, and provide the best possible service to their customers,” said Boxed CEO Chieh Huang. “This enhanced alliance with FedEx provides us with the opportunity to address both.”

Boxed and FedEx have enjoyed a strong relationship since the company first started shipping orders in 2013., Boxed will increase its shipping capabilities by fully leveraging the FedEx network, and provide even better service to customers.

The commitment from FedEx will help Boxed grow its retail business and provide a consistent delivery experience throughout the country.

“The collaboration between FedEx and Boxed demonstrates how e-Commerce providers and shipping companies can craft new solutions to collectively meet our customers’ new demands and needs today and tomorrow,” said Ryan Kelly, vice president E-Commerce, SAM & Retail Marketing, FedEx. “We’re proud of this alliance and look forward to enabling Boxed and its retailers access to supply chain flexibility and capability that is unrivaled in the marketplace. It is what’s next for businesses of all sizes.”
