Another tool we’ve intended to help our client ship with pleasure stands out as the automatic analysis of dimensions of the delivered things. If there’s an opportunity for clients to chop costs on better packaging, we notify them with that.
Aside from that, we’ve made the backend re-factoring. Now our services are even faster and even more stable.
