Research and list the different carrier firms. Not only will you expand your network of potential carriers, you’ll also be able to compare rates and identify which one is most affordable.

Be careful about the packaging materials you use. You should reuse the suppliers' packaging materials, such as:

  • Air pillows
  • Peanuts packing
  • Bubble wrap

Consolidate your shipment. Avoid sending multiple boxes over if you can by packing them in a single cargo together. To prevent damage or loss while shipping, consider its weight and density.

Finally, hire a freight forwarding agent. This is one of the most efficient ways to save shipping costs. It’s more beneficial to employ or recruit a freight forwarder, as they have a broad link with different carrier companies that can negotiate prices and provide you with more logistics information.
