how to reduce cargo cost

1 Choose the smallest possible box. Most of the cargo courier service providers now uses dimensional weight to set charges for shipping. Thus, the price you pay is now the dimensional weight or the actual weight, whichever is greater. Reducing packet size and  packing materials can reduce your shipping costs and keep you from incurring extra charges you won't be able to recover from your customer

2. Most of parcel/cargo sender ends up paying extra just only not for choosing right service. Select the right service.Unless you need a package to arrive the next morning, you don't need to incur the extra cost of air shipping.


3. Negotiate with multiple companies . All shipping companies have pricing schedules based on volume: The more you ship, the lower your rate. But small businesses often don't realize they also may have negotiating power, says Jack Mitchell, president of PANCGroup, a Boston-based parcel appraisal and negotiations consulting firm. If you ship large numbers of packages, compare prices and try to persuade carriers to offer lower rates.
4. Use packaging provided by your carrier. If you use your own packaging, you could face additional "dimensional fees" if your box exceeds the size regulations set by UPS and FedEx. To avoid those extra charges, consider using the packaging provided by your carrier, which doesn't have dimensional fees. By putting a one-pound box into a FedEx envelope, for example,DuBois cut his shipping cost by 15 percent.
5. Ask about association discounts. Find out if your industry's professional association has a partnership with a carrier that offers member discounts. Depending on the size of the association, you could be eligible for discounted rates of up to 50 percent on certain services with carriers like FedEx and UPS.

Parcel Courier Delivery to Europe

European Road Delivery from the UK

Sending a parcel from the UK to the other parts of Europe is easy as long as you know the right parcel delivery Europe provider, as well as the rules that cover the parcel delivery. It is important to know the taxes and fees, shipping restrictions, as well as courier prohibitions and restrictions.


Taxes and Duties

When it comes to European road delivery from UK to any EU member country, the package is not subjected to customs clearance because it will be considered as in free circulation. The parcel can travel within EU without the need of a customs invoice. The receiver of the package will not have to pay any import tax or duty before receiving it. Keep in mind that not all countries in Europe are part of the EU. Check with non-EU countries about the taxes and duties that you need to pay.


Restrictions in Europe Road Freight

There are some things that you need to consider when employing a cheap courier to Europe. To start with, the courier has prohibitions and restrictions that will decide what you can send or can’t send through their parcel delivery Europe services. Some countries also have restrictions on what you can import into them.


Courier Restrictions

While most of the items that are part of the courier restricted list are common sense, there are still people who are surprised to find out that they can’t send some items through couriers. Some of the items include flammable, corrosive, combustible and other hazardous items that include common cleaning products. Tobacco and alcohol are also not allowed by couriers. Other items not allowed by couriers include money and other tradable items; animal skins and furs; and aerosols, nail vanish, and perfume.

The parcels go through x-rays and screens before they leave the UK to determine if they have prohibited or dangerous goods. It is important to check with the courier and request for a list of prohibited items to avoid delays.


Country Regulations in Europe

While you don’t need to worry about clearing customs if you are sending a package within the EU, you still need to make sure that the products are allowed to be imported into the destination country. Each country has their own regulations when it comes to the importation of goods through European road delivery.

You should make sure that the items you are sending are allowed by the import regulations of the destination country. Failure to do so will result to the package being sent back and you will occur, additional fees.

These are the things that you need to keep in mind when employing the services of a cheap courier to Europe. If you are unsure whether you can send the parcel or not, call the courier and let them check it for you.
