SMALL BUSINESS – SHIPPING AND LOGISTICS
What is the difference between shipping and logistics? Shipping is one part of logistics. Logistics includes shipping whether by land, air or sea. You will have all of the information, supplies, means of transport and end users. Having all of that and keeping track of what to move and how to move it is logistics.
PLAN YOU’RE PACKING COST
When operating a small business, it can be tempting to skimp on packing charges, but that strategy can end up costing you more in the long run when your customers demand a refund for broken or damaged items. You may have a return policy set in place. However, you will inevitably have some customers wanting to return items. It is always good planning to request a quote to determine the cost to pack one of your items correctly, and keep that price in mind when you are deciding how much to charge your customers for the item.
DOMESTIC VS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Domestic shipping or shipping within the United States is almost always cheaper than shipping internationally. However, this shouldn’t discourage you from offering international shipping. Offering international shipping options can be a game-changer for business growth.
To offset the extra cost associated with international shipping, many small business’
charge a separate shipping cost for international vs domestic shipping. Your customers are likely to expect this, and offering separate shipping costs is less likely to alienate them than not offering international shipping at all!
At the end of the day, your customers are the most important thing to your small business. They are who you need to succeed in growth. Increase customer satisfaction by being realistic with customers about how quickly they can expect to receive their order, keeping in mind not only how long it takes to ship items but also how long it takes you to create items.
