How do you plan to scale your operations for the high tide of small package shipments coming this holiday? For many, a spike in parcel orders pushes logistics to the max – leading to shipment delays, rushed processes and even lost or damaged packages. To soothe your holiday headaches, we put together the Unishippers’ Guide to Small Package Holiday Shipping. The material offers practical tips, covering:
- Packaging do’s and don’ts
- Challenging carrier schedules
- Customer expectations
- Insurance tips to protect profits
The best practices covered in the guide are an example of how a third-party logistics (3PL) partner like Unishippers brings the knowledge and resources needed to simplify complex holiday operations. Small businesses using UPS shipping or other carriers will need to find the best rates, book trucks in advance, track packages and file claims all while managing a deluge of orders. It’s a lot to handle. But, with the right partner, these challenges become perfect opportunities to close the year strong.
