3 Pacejet tips to help eliminate some unexpected shipping costs:
1- Use Address Validation. It’s likely that your business has experienced sending packages to incorrect addresses in the past. We know how costly shipping errors like this can be and want to help you avoid unnecessary business expenses.
With Pacejet’s Address Validation, you can streamline your shipping operations to ensure packages and pallets arrive at the correct location, every time. Add in Pacejet’s Address Validation to make both you and your customers happy.
2- Make sure your DIM weight calculation is accurate. Have you audited your company’s process for determining DIM weight recently? How sure are you with that it's efficient?
Hidden costs can occur within your process if it includes manual data entry on the shipping line. And you know if DIMs are off, you will be charged additional fees by the carrier. Just a few common reasons for incorrect DIM weight’s include not only data entry errors, but, additionally, shipping minimums and shipment consolidation.
FedEx has this handy calculator on their website and can be used as a great check and balance when auditing your DIM weight process.
3- Leverage one interface. Having all of your data from carriers, sales, inventory, and orders in one place saves you time, but also, decreases room for costly errors. Connecting your shipping software directly with your ERP ensures all of your business’s information is housed together to eliminate room for errors.
Having access to your picking, packing, and shipping data together will not only help you view your shipment holistically, but it will also help your business see the cost savings in one common, comfortable user interface.
These are just a few tips to help your business drive down freight costs and keep your shipping process consistent.
