Small Business Reading Room

Whatever item you will be shipping, timing matters.  Also you would like your goodies to arrive quickly and safely.  Here are some tips that you should remember:

1. Typically, Mondays and Tuesdays are the busiest shipping days, so your  in-and –out time may be faster midweek.
2. When shipping perishables, avoid sending them right before a weekend or holiday because your package may sit in a sorting facility over the weekend. Perishable items that travel well include bread, dried fruit, mixes and hard candies.
3. When sending chocolates be sure to refrigerate it as long as you can prior to packaging and use a gel ice in the box to avoid melting.
4. Choose the best shipping option based on the price and reliability.

 Most of the shipping providers will assist you to custom pack or figure out the most cost-effective way to ship an item.
