UPS, FedEx and other carriers spend large sums of money advertising that all of your parcel shipping needs can be satisfied by one vendor. In return for your business, the carrier will provide (at a very low price, or even free) the hardware and software your company needs to automatically create shipments, assign tracking numbers, print labels, and produce the required end-of-day reports. All you need to do is pick, pack, wrap, and have it on your dock. And, by placing all of you
parcel requests with one carrier, it is reasonable to assume that you will be getting the best rate, given your level of volume. How can things get better than that?
