How SMEs Can Save Cost on Shipping
It’s tempting to overlook shipping and delivery logistics to concentrate on sales and marketing. But you can save cost on shipping your items if you pay attention. Saving cost on shipping can mean a lot, for instance, you can reduce the cost to customers and this may even help boost sales.
Here are some easy ways small businesses can avoid overspending, from our shipping experts at GIG Logistics:
Use the correct packaging
Always use the smallest boxes possible when shipping items. Most courier providers including GIG Logistics will charge you based on the weight or dimensions of your items, whichever is greater, so, it is advisable to pick a box that is not too big but has enough space to cushion your items, especially if fragile.
For example, shipping a phone in a box that is big enough to fit a laptop will have an effect on your cost of shipping.
Choose the right service for your items
You do not always have to opt for express delivery if your parcels are not required to arrive urgently. Businesses can save costs when they use standard delivery options if they do not need express delivery.
