Shipping software and multiple carriers

I want to ship my products to customers using both Fedex and UPS. Does that mean I need two different pieces of shipping software?

Shipping software and multiple carriers

No. If you know you are going to ship with multiple carriers, do not get locked into using a different piece of shipping software for each carrier. That would mean you are making the decision about which carrier to use without being able to analyze the different costs and benefits of each in real-time. Fedex ups shipping software, as well as shipping software that works with other carriers as well, is available on either a stand-alone machine or a multi-user system. If you only have one shipping clerk, your fedex ups shipping software can probably run on a single computer in a single location. When your business grows such that you need more options, expand into a multi-user system that is well integrated with your other internal software applications.
