Blog 5 tips

 

In recent years, parcel carriers have also experienced supply chain issues.

 

Increasing costs due to labor shortages, inclement weather, and numerous other disruptions have caused major parcel carriers to increase their rates. The ever-increasing rates make order fulfillment more expensive for e-commerce businesses. Shipping costs may feel like the only option for many online sellers.

The following tips may assist internet retailers in delaying price increases.

1) re-examine express shipments

You don’t have to ship everything express just because your customers want two-day delivery. You can maximize your parcel shipping budget by using express services only when necessary.

2) use lighter dunnage

Consider using lightweight dunnage, such as air pillows, if possible.

3) change free shipping options

Shipping costs can be passed on to your customers without reducing free shipping. Consider offering free standard ground shipping and adding a surcharge for two-day, one-day, and same-day shipping.

4) diversify your delivery model

Shop around to find the best deal.

5) add more warehouses

Expanding your warehouse footprint is the best way to combat rising parcel rates in 2022.

Customs Clearance Service

The importance of product testing

Customs Clearance Service

There is a global tide of protectionism that is revolving around the topic of crossing borders.

 

Each country has a large body of legal documentation, as well as agents enforcing regulations.

It is important to follow these rules for many reasons: preventing terrorism, ensuring consumer safety, balancing trade, and generating revenue.

To ensure goods are moved legally without complications, international trade is subject to numerous controls and regulations.

Nevertheless, goods of all kinds sometimes don’t get past checkpoints for several reasons, causing massive delays and ripples across supply chains – impacting the bottom lines of businesses.

The importance of proper product testing and documentation in global exports and imports is often underestimated by many.

As part of customs clearance, there are multiple government agencies involved – including the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, Customs and Border Protection, and Fish and Wildlife.

It is possible to have incorrect or incomplete documentation if testing and certification are not performed before goods are packed for shipment. Before the goods reach the consumer, this becomes a show stopper for global shippers.

There are stringent rules when it comes to product testing and compliance when products cross borders, whether they are tomatoes, wine, plastic toy soldiers, or nail clippers.

It is often the government that stops shady goods from slipping through the cracks without being properly tested.
