Memphis, TN, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- April 30, 2019 – Surge Holdings, Inc. (“Surge”) (OTCQB: SURG), developer of the SurgePays™ retail blockchain network, is pleased to announce it has completed the integration of UPS delivery into the Company’s SurgePays™ platform.
Brian Cox, CEO and Chairman of Surge Holdings, commented, “The SurgePays platform transforms the traditional retail supply chain by providing a virtual distribution hub for local retailers and convenience stores to access wholesale goods from around the country. In addition, our platform provides manufacturers the ability to cost effectively reach tens of thousands of stores nationwide. I am pleased to report we have achieved an important milestone with the integration of UPS into the SurgePays fulfillment module, which has now been fully tested, completed and is live on the system. As a result, we can provide manufacturers with pick-pack-ship forms and pre-populated UPS shipping slips, as well as tracking and notifications for both the manufacturer and merchants. Importantly, we believe this integration will also help lower distribution costs for manufacturers by allowing them to leverage the mass purchasing power available through UPS.”
“Our goal from the start has been to make the process of ordering, fulfillment and delivery of products between local retailers and manufacturers as simple, quick and efficient as possible through a modular and scalable software platform. I’d especially like to thank John Mott, our Chief Technology Officer, who has done a great job leading multiple teams of software developers to make this integration possible.”
