Shipping bulks of products internationally can sometimes cost a fortune. If summed up, the cost of shipping rates consists most of your expenses. If you practice some little tricks that could lessen the expense of shipping by a couple of bucks, you can save from hundreds to thousands of dollars annually.
Here are some clever tricks on shipping that can help you save your money.
Manage your product weight down to the littlest kilogram
Providing an accurate weight description for your shipments can save you a lot of money if you practice this trick every time you do a shipping.
Take advantage of international parcel carriers that offer discounts
Atom Logistics says that when you are in the UK, you can tap one of the UK’s fastest growing parcel management firms that are working in partnership with the largest and most respected parcel carriers in the country and across the globe. You can always negotiate for discounts if you are shipping in bulks and are handling a private business.
Practice batch processing of products
If you ship 20 products at a time, you can save more money in the long run than shipping five products at once. The cost of going back and forth to a post office or a parcel shipping company can accumulate if you ship products individually so it is better to give them all in bulks.
Partner your product with the best package where it can perfectly fit. If you see a lot of empty space in the package then it is not the right fit. This way, you can lessen the weight of your parcel and lessen the cost of the shipment. You can also customize the look of the parcel to make it look appealing to customers.
International rates for shipping may go up depending how far the product will travel. It is best to be diligent in managing the little things that must be accounted to in shipping products to save expenses.
