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.

Warehouses are used by companies for receiving, storing and re-sorting, assemblying or preparing their products, parts, raw materials, etc.

The next step in the logistics chain is where delivery companies come in.

Save time and money utilizing a delivery or courier service

I’ve worked with many companies during my tenure in the courier and delivery business.  From a transportation perspective, Most of our customers have a common theme.  Shipments arrive at their warehouse, usually by tractor trailer, in some type of bulk form.  Sometimes raw materials, or partially assembled products, but most often just in large bulk amounts to be broken down in the warehouse, sorted into smaller shipments and then shipped locally, regionally, nationwide or worldwide, to their customers.

For local and regional, time sensitive shipments, many companies choose to outsource to a courier or delivery service in their area.

Courier and delivery services offer different options including:

  • On demand, same-day pickup and delivery
  • Scheduled, same-day pickup and delivery
  • Medical couriers
  • Pharmacy delivery
  • TSA couriers
  • Express freight California
  • Driver staffing
  • 3PL

What are the best ways to get your pharmaceuticals delivered?

What are the best ways to get your pharmaceuticals delivered?  I guess it’s how you define ‘best’ in this context.  The best way to get pharmaceuticals delivered from the pharmacists perspective would be right away and for free.

Until someone figures out that option, or drones take over courier and delivery services, the best way to get pharmaceuticals delivered to your customers reliably and in a cost effective manner is to partner with an established regional courier service.  Here are some of the things you should look and steps you should take in addition to having the courier fill out your ‘Request for Proposal’ (RFP).

If you have identified a prospective courier vendor that meets your RFP requirements:

1. Personally meet the owner, General Manager, Operations Manager and Account Representative.

2. Visit the couriers warehouse and offices.

3. Get current references and call them.

4. Request updated copies of their certificates of insurance for cargo, liability, workers compensation and collision.

5. Test the prospective courier by having them perform random courier runs and see how they perform, communicate and verify their deliveries.

How to get an honest quote for delivery services California

Often, when I speak to people who are seeking to get a quote for delivery services, they are pleasantly surprised that they have reached someone who is experienced, knowledgeable and has the time to get an accurate and detailed description of the needs.

There are thousands of small delivery companies, some with only very specific and limited capabilities, due to the fact that they only have one or maybe two customers.  Even delivery companies that have a website can have little more in the way of assets, experience or financial backing that would make you feel comfortable putting your delivery needs in the care.

I started HB Express five years ago and now work with five of the most experienced and reliable delivery companies in California.  I work closely with the owner of each company and insure that every quote we provide an accurate and honest assessment of your needs and the rates for which you can count on paying.

From packages across town to pallets across the state, HB Express provides quotes for the following services:

3PL California, California Freight Service, courier quotes, courier services sacramento, Driver staffing, express freight california, medical courier, pharmacy delivery, Same Day Delivery, TSA Courier, warehouse distribution
