aims to ease online shopping

A free search engine platform for multi-carrier shipping rates, Toronto-based is hoping to ease the online holiday shopping process by granting users visibility into different courier services.

By entering the source and destination postal codes on the site, the engine will produce a comparison of carrier shipping rates, times and transportation routes using Google Map.

The site searches FedEx, UPS, DHL, U.S. Postal Service, and local and regional couriers.

The company also recently launched a new toolbar utility that essentially keeps a small window open on users’ desktops for easy and frequent access.
