Systems Provide Important Shipping Choices for Customers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (06/24/11)

FORT MYERS, FL – June 24, 2011 - Today, Harvey Software made public
additional details describing why small package shippers should be sure
to consider using a multi-carrier shipping system instead of a ‘free’
system provided by the carriers. To stay competitive, companies must
offer shipping choices for their customers. The reasons may be
surprising. A lack of shipping choice can ripple through a business
since limiting the shipping choice to a single carrier can cost a
company in immediate sales and sales opportunities.
“Use just one carrier for your shipping and both your customers and your company can suffer,” stated Bob Sansone, Harvey Software’s Director of Sales. “Shoppers today are smarter and better informed than ever before. They know if they are only offered a single carrier as a shipping choice, they may be paying too much for shipping. If they think that shipping is too expensive, they quickly cancel their orders and sales are lost,” said Mr. Sansone. “That’s not all. If you have customers that require ‘bill receiver’ or ‘bill third party’ shipping by a specific carrier, if you can’t use that carrier, you likely will not gain that business. These are two pretty different situations with the same result – losing business because carrier choices are not available,” continued Mr. Sansone. “The right multiple carrier shipping system allows companies to offer free shipping or flat-rate shipping offers, and those definitely build sales. The right multi-carrier carrier shipping system can choose the best carrier and service for each package shipped with the ‘standard shipping’ choice. Free and flat-rate shipping offers are not tied to a specific carrier so a company can provide the best, competitive shipping options to gain the most sales possible,” concluded Mr. Sansone. A multiple carrier shipping system opens much more opportunity than just shipping by a carrier of your choice. The right multiple carrier shipping system can be the advantage that makes the difference in a company’s profits.
