HOW TO LOWER SHIPPING COSTS
1. Focus on flat rate shipping
All major shipping companies offer various flat rate options, flat rate shipping takes the guessing part out of the shipping process. Order a couple of boxes of each size from the shipping company of your choice and determine which are the best fit for your business on the basis of cost, shipping time, box size, and other factors. Doing so could reduce your shipping costs by 15 percent and save you time. Some of the information about different shipping zones can be confusing, don’t hesitate to call a shipping provider and speak to your account manager. His or her job is to help you figure out the best approach for your shipping needs.
2. Consolidate your shipping accounts
shipping rates are often based on volume, it benefits you to ship as much products on your account as possible. This includes incoming shipments of supplies and raw materials. When possible, ask your vendors to ship product on your account, which many will do. This also eliminates any markup you may be paying on that cost. Be careful, however, as many shipping companies require payment within 15 days, while your vendors may provide longer and more flexible terms.
3. Use shipping company equipment
Most major carriers, such as DFT, can and will provide software and equipment for your company, including computers, printers and scales. Depending on your volume and what you negotiate, many will provide it at no charge or find grant money to help subsidize the costs. This is way to make a shipping process much more accurate and also help curve shipping costs.
