One-stop Shipping for Prepaid, Collect and Third Party Shipments

Posted by Tania

As the lead shipper for your small to medium-size company, are you occasionally requested by your customers to ship under their courier account number? If so, you know that the process for collect and/or third party shipments can be time consuming as you need to spend time going to the specific courier website, manually filling out the courier waybill and so on.

Would you prefer a one-stop shipping solution for your prepaid, collect and third party shipments?

At FlagShip, our proprietary online shipping system gives you discounted brand-name courier rates and the option to ship in 3 ways:

In FlagShip’s online shipping system, you can easily create a shipment that will be charged to the consignee or a third party with a few simple steps:

  1. In the NEW SHIPMENT screen, go to the OPTION section. Choose the payment option in the OPTION section.
  2. For collect shipments simply indicate the customer account number. For third party shipments indicate the customer account number and full billing information for the company paying for the shipment.
  3. In the RATE screen it is important to choose the right courier and service required.
  4. A transactional fee of $1.95 will be billed to you and all transportation charges will be billed to collect/3rd party company.
