Late Delivery Refunds
Our automated system monitors your FedEx and UPS shipping accounts for late deliveries and service failures. If your overnight, ground (yes, works on ground too!), or international shipments are delivered late -even by 60 seconds- you are entitled to a full refund. The claims process is typically manual, cumbersome, and inefficient. 71lbs audits and claims these refunds for you!
Lost & Damaged Refunds
You are entitled to receive a refund for your lost or damaged shipments! With our Lost and Damaged services, you will be provided with a list of potential tracking numbers that we have identified as either lost or damaged and file & fight these claims for you. You can track the entire process and verify the refunds on your 71lbs account.
Protecting your merchandise in the most cost-effective way possible is extremely important when running your shipping operation. 71lbs offers Shipping Insurance at a 25%+ savings compared to the carrier’s declared value program, and it is true insurance so you no longer have to prove carriers’ negligence.
Your carrier sales reps are giving you discounts left and right! You think you’ve struck gold! However, upon further analysis, most of the zones with higher discounts you rarely ship to. We leverage the shipping volume of our thousands of customers to bring you shipping discounts that are beneficial and unique to your shipping activity. Learn more today!
