Shipping costs can have a great impact on the revenue from your business. Optimising your packaging and changing some shipping habits can save more while shipping. Here are a few tips on how you can tweak your shipping habits to make the most out of your business.
– Understand How You Are Charged –
Dimensional weight takes into account the weight and volume of the packaging. If your packaging weighs less but has a large volume, then you will be charged based on the volume. If your package is heavier, then the charges will be according to the weight. Dimensional weight, in general, favors those shipping heavier products. So, to save more, make sure you use the smallest size packaging possible. Different shipping companies have different policies to calculate the dimensional weight. So, make sure that you research different companies too.
