Understanding Small Parcel Carrier pricing!

For shippers of small packages, choosing the optimal box size and streamlining the packing process is becoming an increasingly important consideration when trying to drive down transportation costs!

As of 2015, both FedEx® and UPS® adjusted their pricing strategy for small package shipments by adding Dimensional Weight criteria to the existing weight calculation for all packages measuring 3 cubic feet or less. This announcement placed a significant impact on all shippers that move these types of packages. Through this White Paper, you will understand the impact and you will also learn about the steps that can be taken to help mitigate the impact for your organization.

Consultant and Road Warrior – What’s in your backpack???

On the golf channel there is a show called “What’s in the bag” where they take a look at what clubs and other goodies are in the famous professional golfers bags. You’ll be amazed at what they have in their bags from the usual drinks, snacks, spare gloves to photos, lucky charms and more….
