is solely for corporate information, while ShipRiteSoftware.com

1990, J. Mark Ford opened his first ShipRite Mail & Parcel Center in Cicero, NY.
By 1996, there were 3 ShipRite retail stores (N. Syracuse and Ithaca, NY were added.) To manage these stores, ShipRite created its own POS/Shipping software in the newest Windows technology. In 1997, ShipRite began selling ShipRIte Lite® for Windows to other retail shipping stores. This remained a part time venture until 2002, when a contract with DHL® was signed. The product created for DHL® is their popular Store2Door POS software, which is still popular today.
several years later the company has grown into it's own corporation,
with several successful businesses behind its name. Ford, as the
current President / CEO, had brought his growing company, ShipRite
Services and its headquarters back home with him
to Utica, NY.
Services purchased an 1866 Italianate Mansion
on Genesee St. in downtown Utica. With 9600 square feet, the company
now has plenty of room to expand. Ford has also taken on the task of restoring the former J.B. Wells mansion, one room at a time.
