What are factors that affect shipping charges?

Shipping charges are usually spelled out by delivery companies on rate sheets or agreements between service providers and their customers, shippers.  In addition to the charges incurred due to the time parameters, the shipment itself also affects the rate.

Volume or girth: How much room does shipment take up in the truck.  Also, how hard or easy is the shipment handled by the driver?

Weight: The heavier the shipment, the more expensive it’s going to be.

Access: Is the delivery time consuming or a quick turnaround?  Does the driver have to wait in line to be unloaded or to get a signature for proof of delivery?

Hazmat: Obviously shipping Hazmat items incurs higher shipping charges due to special handling requirements and regulations.

Delivery Locations: Shipments picked up or delivered in dense traffic areas or in remote areas will cause costs and therefore rates to be higher.

Minumum wage hike, gas prices change courier rates

Courier and deliver companies across the US, but especially in California, are being affected by the latest minimum wage hike and the downward trend in fuel prices.

Some delivery companies, even the large carriers, still have fuel surcharges that reflect gas prices early last year.  Since then, gas has dropped dramatically, but the fuel surcharges remain.

On another front, delivery companies that abide by federal and state employment laws, are now increasing driver pay due to the recent $1.00 per hour increase in minimum wage in California.

Now is a great time to get a competitive courier quote for delivery services.

Losing money on your supply chain? Call HB Express

There is a lot of news these days about large companies like Amazon, Wal Mart and others, trying to one-up each other by delivering their products faster and cheaper.  I’ve yet to read one article that any of them are having any success with this.  While these large companies can afford to lose thousands or millions or dollars getting their products shipped, smarter large companies and most medium and small companies cannot afford this expensive, money-losing business model.

It always amazes me that companies spend millions on corporate salaries, advertising, fancy buildings and public relations, but when it comes down to it, some delivery person at the bottom of the corporate ladder is making very little money, probably being forced to work as an independent contractor using their family car,  and is responsible for the most important part of the business transactions, actually getting the shipments to the customer.

There are regional courier and delivery companies that operate excellent and tested delivery networks.  These companies are in it for the long term and everyone’s success is dependent on operating efficiently and profitably.  Instead of being run by corporate know-it-alls, they are run by experienced transportation people who dedicate themselves and their careers to providing transportation of time-sensitive shipments.

HB Express Transportation is a Third Party Logistics, California based company that works with the most trusted and efficient courier and delivery companies.  We are authorized to provide their potential customers with the most competitive and honest bid or proposal for transportation of time sensitive shipments throughout California and western Nevada.

The HB Express network provides package and pallet delivery of time sensitive shipments for the below listed categories:
