At Freightcom we know that parcel shipping is not a one-way street. For as much as we talk about cross-border and international shipping, and for as proud as we are to offer you incredible rates on parcel shipping within Canada and from Canada, we are always striving to do better.
When we say that Freightcom is an all-in-one shipping solution, we mean it, and our team works tirelessly to ensure that we are truly able to offer businesses the best shipping services across the board. That is why we are thrilled to announce that we are now offering incredible rates on parcel shipping from the US to Canada through our partner carriers!
What does this mean for your business? Let’s take a look at a couple of ways these new rates can help you grow faster and offer more to your customers.
Better Cross-Border Returns Management
Returns are arguably the most important part of the retail and eCommerce experience, and oftentimes can also be the most frustrating for both customers and shippers. This only gets compounded when the return is coming from a cross-border customer. On the one hand, a business may offer free or discounted shipping on returns, which could dig deep into one’s profit margin. Conversely, if a customer is required to incur the cost for the return, a less-than-favourable shipping rate is more likely to result in a lost customer.
In addition, there is often the fear, especially when using a less reliable carrier for your returns shipping, that the return, and any chance of properly salvaging it, will be lost.
With our new, lower cross-border rates, you can now offer a strong, reliable, customer-centric return policy to customers in the US and Canada with confidence. If your business has yet to expand into the US market, this may be a sign that the time is right.
Avoid Unnecessary Imports
It’s not uncommon for a business to have their goods manufactured outside their country of operation. Oftentimes for Canadian companies this can mean having products manufactured in the US, shipped in bulk to Canada, and then shipped to customers.
While Freightcom is the leader in cross-border LTL shipping solutions, we also recognize that if a company can save on their overhead by reducing how many times products are shipped, then it only helps that company grow faster, which is ultimately what we strive for.
Thanks to our new parcel rates, you can avoid the costly middle step of importing truckloads of goods to Canada before shipping them out to your customers. Instead, take advantage of our huge savings on cross-border parcel services and simply ship directly from your manufacturer or distribution centers to your customers, save on time and money, and provide a better shipping experience for your customers!
