Case Study: Online retailers reduce shipping costs

To be profitable, you as an online retailer are required to ship your products to your customers overseas fast. The only problem is that if you don’t have a huge volume to ship, individual shipping becomes very expensive. How are you supposed to compete with larger competitors when they are offering faster and faster delivery times that customers have learned to expect?

In the following article, we bring out two examples to illustrate how you can save tremendously from international shipping costs by shipping your products in bulk to any of Warehouse.Space warehouses around the world closest to your customers.

Challenges and solutions in international shipping

To ship a 1kg package in the traditional way means that you have to pay standard shipping fees. This can be overly expensive for small business, leaving the business owner with a tiny profit margin.

To reduce shipping costs and increase delivery time, you can ship in bulk to any of our warehouses worldwide, and pay only for the handling fee and delivery service each time we pick, pack and dispatch an order to your customer on your behalf.

Warehouse.Space ensures that our closest warehouse to your customer will fulfil the order keeping your shipping costs at a minimum and with the fastest delivery time.
