One of the impacts of the Coronavirus is a slow down of products from China. People still need these products and have begun ordering them from alternate suppliers, including many small businesses here in Boston. While any order is of course welcome, for those small businesses who don’t have much experience with international shipping, there are stresses involved.
International shipping is complicated. There are a number of factors to consider, from your choice of shipping carton and packing materials – it’s essential to use products durable enough for the rigors of international travel – through the customs & international shipping paperwork and insurance coverage costs. Scheduling and other logistical concerns need to be taken into account – critically important information if you’re shipping product to a customer who needs it to meet their own production deadlines, for example.
Because of the complexity and costs of international shipping, many Boston small business owners use a Massachusetts International Shipping Company to meet current demands. The advantages of using a professional shipping service is that they’re experts who can quickly and efficiently get your shipment to your customer – no matter where they may be!
