ParcelPath Lake Oswego Review Feature: Online shopping has become a norm in today’s digital age, making it easier for consumers to purchase goods and have them delivered to their doorstep. With the increasing demand for online shopping, the need for efficient and cost-effective shipping solutions has also risen. One such solution is an online shipping platform that offers discounted rates.

And thus, Parcel Path was born. Tucker Lemm formerly believed that occasionally expensive cross-country shipping charges were unavoidable.

He discovered that such expenses are, in fact, adjustable. And this epiphany set him on the path to founding Parcel Path, a free platform that enables users to print a mailing label and enjoy substantial shipping reductions.

Lemm started Parcel Path over two years ago after helping found a competing company called Pirate Ship. Since then, he got the company certified as a digital access partner and negotiated a contract with United Parcel Service and the United States Postal Service for discounted shipping rates. He said Parcel Path currently has around 10,300 customers and that it gets paid based on the volume that is shipped using Parcel Path-provided labels. Customers can also schedule UPS or individual mail carriers to pick up their packages on the website.

Customers can also schedule UPS or individual mail carriers to pick up their packages on the website.

“UPS is interested in generating more business. They are competing with the United States Postal Service and FedEx and DHL a little bit, and now Amazon is even more on their radar,” Lemm said when asked why UPS would work with Parcel Path..

To reduce the barrier to entry, Parcel Path eschewed the addition of a subscription fee. Thus, the company needs to stay lean in terms of staffing and operating costs.

“We are unique because we have a free model,” he said.

The process for using Parcel Path simply involves registering on the website, filling out shipping information, purchasing the label on a credit card and then printing it out.

The company is also working on a barcode alternative so that customers won’t have to print out labels.

For a package with standard dimensions and weighing five pounds, Parcel Path notes that customers can save around $80-$100 for overnight shipping, $60-$80 for two-day shipping and $9-$10 for regular shipping by using its platform.

“There’s gonna be billions of dollars spent in the next two months on shipping. People are looking for ways to save. It’s a really good resource for everyone,” Lemm said.

Yuri Sernande, the chief technology officer who joined the company about a year ago, said he was impressed with how quickly Parcel Path was able to develop its software and establish certification with UPS. And he believes the future is bright for the company.

“We really want to tell the tech world in shipping that we’re an Oregon company, we’re very uniquely positioned and we’ve bootstrapped our way into this,” Sernande said.
