“I don’t know if you’d call it an economic recovery, but I can say that business is picking up!” Darren lives in Eastern MA, and runs a specialty pet food business. “At this time last year, we were shipping fifteen to twenty orders a day. Now, it’s more than a hundred orders daily – and more when we have special promotions. It’s getting to be quite a production.”
As a small business owner, you have to make a decision: are you going to handle packaging and shipping your orders yourself, or are you going to outsource the job to a Eastern MA shipping service. For Darren, the decision was simple. “We’re a two-person outfit, and one of those two people has another full time job. Manufacturing and marketing takes up most of our time. We’d talked about taking on another person simply to handle the increased shipping, but when you factor in all of the costs of an employee – the payroll, the taxes, the benefits – it turned out to be more cost-effective to outsource the job. Working with our Eastern MA shipping company saves us time and money.”
Every business has unique shipping needs. In Darren’s case, he’s shipping large, bulky bags of pet food. “We needed a packaging solution that protected the bags. If they rip open and the food spills out the customer’s not going to want to pay for that – and who can blame them? I also needed to make sure packages arrived promptly, on time – our customers just don’t want to wait for anything! By outsourcing to my Eastern MA shipping company, I could be sure that our pet food arrived on time and in great shape – every time.”
