Inbound and Outbound Shipping: What’s The Difference?
Shipping is a vital process that involves managing the movement of materials, information, and resources from one point to another.
Its primary purpose is to fulfill the needs of both customers and businesses by efficiently transporting goods from the point of production or storage to the customer’s doorstep.
In the industry, shipping is often synonymous with logistics, as it encompasses the entire process of acquiring, storing, and transporting goods and materials to their ultimate destination. This comprises various activities, including inbound shipping (receiving goods) and outbound shipping (sending goods).
For GIGL, inbound shipping involves transporting goods from the UK, USA, Ghana, and China to Nigeria while outbound shipping requires sending items from Nigeria to 230+ locations worldwide, irrespective of whether the sender is a supplier/vendor/manufacturer, etc.
In this article, we provide further details on both shipping processes and why business owners need to leverage our inbound and outbound shipping services to expand their supply & clientele coverage to international markets.
