With barbecue season fast approaching, we felt compelled to splurge on a special new cutting board worthy of our masterful steak. Reminded of its recent IPO, we start browsing on Etsy and found the most wonderful Heisenberg cutting board. For the non-Breaking Bad fans, we offer our sympathies. Salivating at the prospect of cutting meat on our new board, we hit the checkout button and to our horror, the shipping costs come in at $44.06, which is more than the actual cutting board. How can this be? Everything is supposed to be instantaneous in the digital age. Where are those fancy drones that Amazon has been working on? After recovering from our post Heisenberg cutting board depression, we started doing some digging on how shipping and fulfillment actually works in the world of eCommerce. Fortunately, we found some intriguing new tech startups that have the potential to really disrupt today’s shipping and logistics infrastructure. Dare we call them “Shipping-as-a-Service” pioneers.
