Complexity Keeps Small Businesses From Shipping Across Boarders
January 21, 2014
Many small businesses still prefer to keep it local, despite the wide availability of couriers in Toronto, Milton, Burlington, Oakville and the GTA. Very few set their sights across the boarder.
Why is this? Are they afraid of money or growth? Of course not. The truth I most are anticipating a myriad of problems that would go with cross boarder shipping.
According to an article at the Financial Post, “When interviewed in 2010, executives most commonly referenced shipping-related issues and poor or cost-prohibitive tracking of packages as their cross-border challenges.
“Others have cited the difficulties of returning packages as a barrier to expanding internationally.”
It’s a legitimate concern, until you find someone to worry about it for you. You’re not paid to be an expert in international shipping, so work with someone who is. Partner with a reliable shipping company, with a proven history of delivering exactly what you need.
If you bring on the right company, they will alleviate any of headaches or nightmares that you may be anticipating. More importantly, building a relationship means they will also be able to anticipate what you will need in the future, while looking for new ways to save you money.
