As we approach January 27th, the start date of USPS 2019 rate increases, we thought it would be helpful to provide some resources around industry-wide rate increases. New year, new shipping rates. Right? With a fairly substantial increase in fuel surcharges beginning in September, FedEx, UPS, and USPS have all announced their increases.
It’s been over a year since industry giants Amazon and UPS both introduced new return shipping tools and policies that directly impacted retailers. On October 2nd, 2017, Amazon launched a policy that “automatically authorizes” returns for customers receiving orders through the fulfilled by seller shipping program. In tandem with this new process, UPS also announced a streamlined return policy that enables customers to easily print prepaid return labels.
But how has any of this affected your business? What steps have you put in place to help your customers return with ease?
What an exciting year it’s been in the world of shipping. With vast industry changes and updates, it’s hard to keep track of all the information and content that promotes better shipping. As the year comes to a close we wanted to provide an easy landing page for some Pacejet shipping blog posts and industry updates from 2018.
Read on to see some of our most relevant shipping articles from 2018.
When ordering a piece of furniture or appliance, nothing beats white glove service. Having a brand new piece of furniture delivered to your door is great but it’s even better when the company offers white glove treatment. Not only do they deliver your purchase to the door but they also walk it in your home, up or down your stairs, and put it in its exact place all without you having to lift a finger.
Pacejet has partnerships with various carriers that offer White Glove service and we are always looking to evolve and add new connections as your business needs change or grow.
