Logistics made easy - instructions for your online shop

3. Appropriate shipping partner

After the picking and packing of the goods, the selection of the right logistician for your online shop follows. Different providers have different geographical focus areas and vary in terms of speed and service level. The price for shipping depends heavily on your volume. It is important that you compare the conditions of the shipping providers very carefully. Many companies have surcharges for tolls, fuel, customs clearance, delivery to private customers, oversize, etc.

Others, on the other hand, have different limits in terms of maximum package length and girth depending on the country. With international shipping, prices are also often calculated based on dimensional weight rather than actual weight. It is therefore important that you do your research beforehand so that you do not run into unexpected costs later.

Not to be neglected when shipping the additional effort for further points:

  • Complete the customs form for worldwide shipping
  • Send fragile goods
  • Send parcels cash on delivery
  • Initiate investigations, clarify cases of damage, etc.

Matters that cost a lot of time and nerves!
