When it comes to the cost of moving your product and shipping your goods to your customers, things can get very expensive. The logistics behind getting something from one point to another seems like an endless list of costs. With Prestige Logistics Group, we can reduce logistics cost on transportation of goods and help you make conducting business easier and more affordable.
1. Consolidate Shipments
In order to reduce your costs on shipping and transportation, consolidate your shipments. Consolidating shipments means that you are going to batch your shipping according to locations. For example, if you have a bunch of packages going to one specific region or country, ship them all together so that they can get to their final destination at one time.
This prevents you from having to send several shipments to one area and paying a lot of money for individual shipments. Calculate how many items you have to ship and how long it will take you to get a big enough batch to make a big shipment. This also gives you some insight on how long it will take for your customers to receive their order.
2. Streamline Warehouse Processes
When the warehouse is running well, that reduces the risk of missing items, late shipping, and having to financially compensate customers for late items. If you don’t have a warehouse of your own, finding a company that will take care of storing your items for you is ideal. These warehouses have systems in place that will ensure everything runs smoothly.
This takes a lot of pressure off you having to have these types of systems on your own. Like HR, IT, and accounting, you can outsource these jobs to other people.
3. Satisfy Your Customers
Nothing cuts costs more than having customers who are satisfied with working with you. There is so much money paid out to fix customer service problems, but if you are working with a third party shipping company, you will be able to get your products to your customers without any problems.
Satisfied customers are the only customers you want to have, and when a third party shipping company is handling your transportation needs, they take a detailed inventory, give you detailed reports, and allow your customers to track their orders so that they always know where their items are at all times. When a customer feels like they are in control, they will come back to work with you time and time again. Third party transportation experts also know how to store and ship sensitive items, so when you are shipping high end items, you don’t have to worry about losing expensive things.
Shipping your goods should not be a hassle. With an entire fleet of couriers offering same and next day delivery by van and by aeroplane, as well as live tracking on all shipments, once we take over your shipment, the rest is left up to us so you can continue running your business.
