“Last year’s Cyber Monday sales exceeded my wildest expectations,” Charles said. “This is a good thing – businesses like mine need every sale they can get – but it also presented a real challenge when it came to getting all of those orders packed and out the door. Obviously a lot of people were doing their holiday shopping, so time was of the essence. And the whole company is only four people – me, my wife, and we have two employees, both of whom were working flat out to get the orders filled. I thought about hiring some temporary employees to do the job, but where was I going to put them? Looking at the numbers, it made more sense for us financially to outsource our shipping to a Boston pack and ship company.”
Small manufacturers and retailers often experience a surge in activity during the last quarter of the year. If this is you, and you’ve found that your shipping department resources are stressed to the max, consider working with a pack and ship company. These dedicated professionals know how important it is to make a good impression on your customers. Every product is packed carefully to be both secure and attractive. Labels, stickers, and other brand building materials are deployed consistently to keep your company’s unique personality front and center. Everything’s done quickly, with a great attention to detail. This means you never have to worry about late or lost shipments.
Pack and ship services are available on an as-needed basis. We understand that for some smaller companies it doesn’t make sense to outsource all of their shipping needs. During slower periods, when the volume of orders isn’t quite as intense, it may be entirely possible to handle all of your shipping needs in house. However, during those peak times, Boston Pack and Ship is here, ready, willing, and able to get your orders to your customers quickly!
