In the last two years, remote work in Canada has increased exponentially. Multiple industries have made the shift to hybrid, or even fully remote work settings, and while the initial push was one of in-the-moment necessity, the prospect of working for or operating a business without an office has become more common, and the way we do business has also changed to better suit this paradigm shift.
As a business owner, maybe you have adopted, or are considering adopting a hybrid or remote model, however the prospect of how this may affect your shipping strategy may be holding you back. That’s why this week we’ll be going over a few of the key tools that Freightcom offers to keep your shipments running smoothly no matter where you are.
A 100% Remote Platform
Despite offering a robust centralized platform to help manage your shipping, Freightcom doesn’t require a centralized location from which to run.
Our platform is 100% cloud-based, designed to be intuitive and easy to use, and is optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. As long as you have an account, and a secure internet connection, you have full access to all your shipments from wherever you are, and on whatever device you wish to use!
Scheduled Pickup Services
For most business owners, there’s no such thing as a 9-to-5 workday. Oftentimes the demands of running a business can mean early days and late nights, often in the same day. Whether that takes place at an office, a home office, or somewhere in-between, you want the flexibility to manage your shipping effectively.
Through our platform, you can schedule all your pickups at times and locations that work best within your schedule. We partner with North America’s leading LTL and parcel carriers, and offer residential pickup and delivery services when you need them!
Convenient Parcel Drop-Off
If you ship parcels exclusively, you know that even the most flexible scheduling for parcel carriers may not fit into your schedule. Don’t fear, we have you covered there, too.
Through our carrier partnerships, you can choose to drop your parcels off at hundreds of convenient parcel drop-off locations around the country and ensure that you never have to worry about missing a pickup again.
3rd Party Fulfillment Services
Perhaps the most remote option when it comes to managing your shipping is to have it handled completely off-site! 3rd party fulfillment is rapidly becoming a more popular, more viable option for businesses of all sizes, and yet another service that Freightcom offers to help you manage your shipping.
Freightcom Fulfillment offers a complete 3PL experience including warehousing, inventory management, and the entire range of our shipping services, all managed directly from the Freightcom platform.
