IronPlanet introduces shipping estimator solution
New shipping calculator integrated into IronPlanet Auction Listings
provides users with shipping cost estimates
PLEASANTON, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2011) - IronPlanet® (www.ironplanet.com), a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, introduced today a shipping calculator that provides customers with estimated shipping costs for items selling in IronPlanet auctions.
“IronPlanet is dedicated to helping customers bid with confidence,” said Randy Berry, Senior Vice President of Operations and Services for IronPlanet. “Along with our detailed inspection reports and IronPlanet’s exclusive IronClad Assurance®, the new shipping estimator allows buyers to make the most informed purchasing decisions by providing them accurate and immediate shipping estimates.”
The shipping estimator is located on the shipping tab within the inspection report for items selling in the U.S. at IronPlanet.com. The calculator automatically populates the item’s origin using the location from the inspection report. The destination within the shipping estimator is prefilled with the user’s location, and can easily be changed by entering a different city or postal code within North America. After clicking the calculate button, the shipping estimator then calculates the shipping cost between the item’s location and the user’s destination using proprietary IronPlanet and Rounders Logistics technologies.
“We’re very excited to bring this technology to IronPlanet’s customers,” said Jeff Cox, President of Rounders Logistics. “Integrating IronPlanet and Rounders technologies makes estimating shipping cost as easy as a click of the button.”
