Palletised_ShippingSo how are you shipping your goods? In the world of business, lots of things need to be shipped. For example, if you’re a retailer, whether a brick and mortar store or online,  selling physical products to the world, then you’ll have to send them out. 

But it’s crucially important for you to find the best possible way to do it.

Here we outline three potential options for you:

By Hand

First of all, this is what you might start with when you begin in business. Because it’s just you. So you have plenty of time to pack your products by hand and then ship them off using the post office, yourself. If you don’t have a lot of orders, or you have the time to do this and the costs are still favourable, keep to it.

With A Fulfilment Centre

Next, when you find that you’re actually running out of time and that you need to get a bit of help, you could think about using a fulfilment company. Here, it’s pretty much what it says on the tin. A specialist company will take care of the shipping for you. So that you can take back your time to focus on other things.

With Professional Shipments

Or finally, it might be that you actually want to be able to go with a professional shipping company. If you know that you’re going to be shipping a lot or you really are ready to free up some of your own time, this is a great option. And if you have lots of shipments or bulkier items, you might find the benefits of palletised shipping in the infographic below, can help you.
