Pump Up The Volume of Your Shipments
Monday, May 02, 2011
Enough already! The escalting fuel prices have caused many consumers to rethink thier driving habits, and the worst may be yet to come. Costs of all goods are likely to go up as well as producers pass on the increased costs.
So what does that mean for your business? Certainly higher shipping costs mean either raising your own prices or an erosion of profits. But what to do? How about a review of your outgoing freight cube utilization? Protection is not the only consideration when deciding how to pack your product. How well does my package cube out a pallet? Furthernore, how well does it cube out the truck your shipping it on?
A comprehensive packaging review can help you dig up cost saving opportunities by reducing overall freight costs. Fuller trucks mean more product moved for the same total dollars. It is also an important feature in a comprehensive sustainability initiative. Use less fuel to deliver the goods, and your carbon footprint gets smaller.
