May 23, 2008, Newsletter Issue #147: Calculating shipping charges and shipping software

Tip of the Week

A shipping software solution can lessen the amount of time necessary to prepare shipping documents and eliminate orders. Instead of looking up shipping rates and zone charts and calculating total costs by hand, a shipping software solution provides you with all that instantly. You can easily compare rates from different carriers and increase the accuracy of your shipping charges so you don't accidentally over or under charge the customers. In addition, many shipping software solutions help calculate dimensions and weight overcharges so you can see at a glance the best carrier to use for a particular shipment. Rather than having to train your shipping clerks on multiple systems, use shipping software that ties into multiple carriers so they only have to learn one piece of software and one method of preparing and tracking shipments.
