Unishippers leverages the combined buying power of our 115,000+ customers to provide competitive shipping rates – and passes those discounts on to you. By being able to negotiate pricing for our customers as a group, Unishippers is able to secure reduced rates by buying in "bulk." The lower pricing is reflected in the shipping costs you’ll pay as a Unishippers customer.
