What is a shipping carrier?
Many small to medium-sized businesses across Canada are seeking a credible and cost-effective shipping carrier as part of their business success. Essentially, a shipping carrier, at its most basic definition, provides transportation services for goods from point A to point B. Delivering products from one location to another.
Shipping is a critical part of a company’s success; getting products and other shipments to customers on-time, damage-free and at a good price is fundamental. It is important to choose a reliable shipping carrier to make sure your goods are being transported safely and efficiently to your customer. That is why FlagShip only works with top shipping carriers like Purolator, UPS, FedEx, DHL, Canpar and GLS. Whether your shipments are going across town or to another country, we have the shipping solution for you.
What to look for in a shipping carrier?
A reliable shipping carrier will ship your goods efficiently and make sure your goods arrive in good condition. But there are other service offerings and features that you should consider:
- Cost: Shipping costs can add up. Whether you’re shipping to another city or to another country, make sure you are getting the best price to help lower your shipping costs.
- Ease of quoting and processing shipments: Time is money so don’t waste your time and make sure to choose a shipping system that can provide you with an accurate quote while making it easy to process the shipment for delivery.
- Tracking shipments: To give yourself a peace of mind, make sure the shipping carrier has a reliable way to track your shipments, so you know the status of your shipment every step of the way.
- Insurance: Although accidents can happen, it is important that the shipping carrier you choose knows how to handle a damaged or lost shipment. The shipping carriers that FlagShip partners with offers up to $100.00 in insurance while FlagShip offers a highly competitive in-house insurance option to protect your shipment from loss or damage and ensure that any claims required runs as smoothly as possible.
- Support: Whether you have shipping questions prior to getting a quote or questions on your shipment after delivery, make sure the shipping carrier service you use can provide you with the support you need.
