- Shipping Rate Search Engine From Toronto

by Varun Mathur | Startups is a Toronto-based start-up which provides a neat little shipping rate search engine. Users enter two zip codes alongwith the weight of the package and the shipping rate comparisons are displayed, from various small and big carriers such as FedEx and US Postal Service. They announced recently that they crossed 1 million queries on their system so far this year, and expect to double that by the end of this year. More from the press release:
