Company Summary

emergeIT is the Expedia of shipping. Our customers are small businesses in North America who ship less than 5 shipments per day. We lower the total cost of shipping for them by offering a web-enabled, one-stop solution backed by “Heroic Support”. We aggregate demand obtaining preferred pricing from today's leading express couriers and freight carriers and make our profit from the spread between our buy and sell prices.
