When the holidays come and volume spikes, having a third-party logistics (3PL) company at your side can be the difference between hectic or healthy shipping. As a full-service 3PL partner focused on small and midsize business (SMB) freight shipping, Unishippers knows how to help shippers through a tough winter schedule. To help kickstart your planning, download our Unishippers’ Guide to Holiday Freight Shipping for simple, practical advice that reminds you to:
- Prep and pack freight as if it’s your own
- Check holiday schedules, then check again
- Insure shipments to sleep better at night
- Be two steps ahead of customers and carriers
Because of increased order volume, cold conditions and carrier complications, the winter has a way of turning up the heat on freight shipping. While challenging, it’s also the perfect time to win new business and start next year strong. The key is to have access to additional resources to manage skyrocketing volume and logistics.
Putting a shipping logistics partner in your corner adds experienced hands that can push you over the holiday hump. With LTL, FTL, air, international, ocean and specialty freight services, Unishippers has the resources and knowledge to find the right carriers with cost-friendly rates so you can deliver on time and on budget.
