Rollo Unveils Best Kept Secrets and Expert Tips For E-commerce Shipping



Rollo Unveils a Many e-commerce shipping startups might believe it to be a smooth sailing ferry that picks things up for you and drops at your feet the next moment. They might even be under the idea that their e-commerce platform houses everything needed to manage the complete logistics process. 

Sadly, reality doesn't flow like everyone's thought process. There is no such platform that claims to be an all-in-one e-commerce space managing logistics, ERP, CRM and all the other things involved. Many are managing through contracts or affiliates with other platforms. 

There is much more to an e-commerce brand than you might think. In the vast eCommerce shipping landscape where digital space meets with tangible goods, industry experts emphasize robust strategies that can't be skipped. 

Foundation of eCommerce Shipping

Contrary to popular belief, E-commerce covers many things apart from putting goods in boxes and sending them sailing. The foundation of successful e-commerce shipping lies in the satisfaction of customers. Here are some steps to master this aspect:

Shipping Diversity 

Being offered several options to choose from is always pleasant. Customers are no different. Like the diverse products you offer as an e-commerce platform, various shipping options also allow your customers to select the most suitable option for their needs and convenience. Moreover, clearly stating shipping costs and expected delivery times helps foster trust in your brand. 

Transparency

Transparency is vital, whether you are shipping for small business or a large enterprise. As the whale world has gone digital, the ratio of scammers has also increased, making it hard for customers to put trust in e-commerce platforms. 

By being transparent in terms of money and time, you give your customers a sense of satisfaction and trust. 

The best way of integrating transparency into your customer support system is by clearly communicating the checkout process, shipping fees and delivery times to avoid unpleasant surprises that could lead to cart abandonment. 

Packaging

The shipping of products doesn't end with leaving your warehouse. It is a long ride full of hitches and hikes through containers, ports, ships, and whatnot. The whole process might damage the goods, leading to bad customer experience and loss of trust. Therefore, you need to ensure that your products will reach the door of customer safety and sound. 

Good packaging not only protects your product integrity but also your brand credibility. Consider using sustainable packaging that also aligns with the eco-conscious consumer base. This type of packaging reduces environmental impact and also resonates well with people who prioritize sustainability. 

Shipping Process Optimization

Owing to the large enterprises and their shipping needs, smaller businesses suffer quite a lot of challenges. Optimizing your shipping process is key to keeping up with the industry leaders. Let's see how to do that.

Negotiate Shipping Costs

It is the rule of the business industry that the more business you provide to others, the more discounts you can avail. This business strategy presents a challenge for small businesses as they don't have the shipping volume of industry behemoths. 

However, with a proper understanding of the e-commerce shipping industry, you can negotiate reasonable shipping costs depending on your needs. 

The best way to cut your expenses short is through collaborations with carriers. Reach a mutually beneficial agreement and leverage your shipping volume (even if relatively small) to secure better rates. 

Use Regional Carriers

Unless you have massive needs that massive carriers can only fulfill, go with the regional carriers. The huge carriers have extensive networks, which calls for higher charges. If regional carriers can cover your e-commerce shipping, they can provide you with the most cost-effective shipping solution to reduce costs. 

Utilization of regional carriers can help you save money while ensuring a faster delivery time and safe delivery all in one.  

Address Common Shipping Challenges

The business of e-commerce shipping can be challenging. You need to keep customer ease and satisfaction in check at all times to keep up with the changing industry landscape. Research the common shipping challenges the e-commerce industry faces to save yourself the hassle later on. 

Cart Abandonment

One of the leading shipping challenges for most e-commerce businesses is cart abandonment, often due to high shipping costs. Let's say a customer wants to buy a shipping label printer that costs them around $390 while its actual cost is $259, and the rest is the shipping cost. Will they proceed with the checkout? The chances are slim. 

The most effective way to combat this issue is through promotional shipping discounts or free shipping, if possible. This approach reduces the perceived cost for the customer while enhancing the average order value for you.

International Shipping Strategy

The international debut of your e-commerce platform promises a bright future but also presents myriad challenges, especially in terms of shipping. You need to consider everything relevant to shipping before expanding your business overseas.

The shipping considerations involve everything from custom regulations and taxes to delivery times. Striking agreements with global carriers and partnering with international fulfillment centers can help to streamline this process. 

Leverage Advanced Technology

In today's digital era, utilizing advanced technology is the basis for optimizing seamless shipping operations. Beginning with the order management system to real-time tracking, the use of technology plays a vital role in creating customer trust and satisfactory experience. 

Order Management Systems

Automate and streamline the order fulfillment process by implementing OMS (Order Management Systems) that keep the possibility of delays and errors to a minimum. You can centralize every process with it, including inventory management, order processing, shipping and overall e-commerce operations. 

R-t Tracking

Real-time tracking software integration allows you to provide transparent services to your customers. Customers develop trust in your brand if they have a source to keep track of their orders. 

Real-time tracking options and notifying customers throughout the shipment process enhance the customer experience and reduce any other complaints and challenges. 

– E-commerce shipping is a core dynamic part of the online retail industry. Having firm control over the shipment process helps you provide cutting-edge customer experience that leads to profitable conversions and good ROI.
