By 03/11/2020Tips

Make sure that the items that you send arrive safely to their destination.

If you own a small business and ship items to customers’ homes, you need to do so as efficiently as possible.

Fortunately, there are ways to expedite the process and still ensure that everything shipped arrives safely to its destination. Learning some tips and tricks helps you fulfill orders faster without increasing the risk of lost or damaged items.

What You Can Do to Make the Shipping Process Easier, Faster, and Cheaper

Shipping doesn’t need to be complicated. It can flow smoothly. It doesn’t matter if you require shipping services for one package or one thousand packages, you can streamline the process and make it faster and cheaper.

Here are five tips for shipping your products more efficiently:

  1. Purchase a Rollo printer.
    It’s an investment in your business and extremely easy to use.

  2. Determine which carrier to use for the postage that you purchase.
    If you only ship with one carrier, you are likely ti miss out on savings, faster delivery, and better customer experience. Each carrier has its strengths and weaknesses and to minimize your spending and maximizing your customer’s positive experience, it is best to compare your shipping options. 

  3. Forgo adding ink or cartridges.
    Forgo the mess and expense that comes with refilling ink or cartridges because the Rollo printer doesn’t need them.

  4. Place labels on top of customer packages.
    Affix the labels with easy-to-peel adhesive to the packages going out. This is actually the same method carriers use. 

  5. Bring to the carrier of your choice or arrange for pick-up.
    Sort packages by carrier and then drop them off while you’re out running errands or contact the carrier by phone to arrange to have them picked up.

Time is money. When you ship your products efficiently, you save yourself time and money. It’s a win-win situation that helps your small business stay on top of things. You don’t need to replace the items that you already shipped, either, because they arrive on time and unscathed.
