International Shipping-Will Switching Companies Keep Your Business Afloat?

The world is getting smaller every day, and while that sounds like a good chorus for a song, people involved in international shipping are the ones who are going to be singing as loudly as anyone. Due to the rapid take up of the internet, and the opportunities that it's giving people to communicate globally, there are businesses springing up everywhere. It's far easier to get yourself established as an online company, than it is as an 'old fashioned bricks and mortar business', but both still have one major thing in common. If the company that you've established is selling some form of physical product, you need a delivery system, and if you're a true online entrepreneur, you'll need an international shipping system to get your products half way around the world. Yes, technology can get you part of the way in business, but you often still have to rely on the old means and methods for getting your goods to people. Of course, it's not only small companies that are looking for more cost effective international shipping, most big companies are starting to realize that they need to tighten their belts, and, seeing sending products is both a means of earning them the money to stay in business, as well as a cost that they have to add to the price of the goods, they're looking to find the best possible price when it comes to their international shipping. Just consider it for a moment; the company has to add x amount to each item so as to cover the cost of transportation, but another company may have a cheaper shipping company that they can make use of, so what happens? Well, they don't need to add as much to the cost of the item, this may make it cheaper than your item, so you could lose the contract. How often can you be undercut before you have to start telling employees that you can no longer afford to have them on the payroll? How many shipping companies take your business into account when it comes to the services they provide? Not many, I'd have thought. So wouldn't it be nice to be able to use a global shipping company that you can call up, and find out if there's any way that they can help you with that over-dimensional, break bulk, or heavy lift cargo that just has to be sent? In fact, if it's something that you really need, ATS International Services, Inc. (ATSI) will charter tonnage for routes that aren't usually covered by other liner-service companies. Talk about going the extra mile for their customers. International shipping, however, isn’t just about sending things by sea. If you need to get your products to their destination quickly, and you don't have a big shipment to be sent, then airfreight may be your best option. Airfreight may also be the best option if you're a small company, as you may not have enough to send to make the time involved in shipping by sea, a viable option for you. So, if you have anything from a small start up business, through to a major corporation, and have realized that the amount you're currently paying for international shipping is making you slightly too expensive to be competitive, then it's time to think about making a change to a shipping company that has you and your business uppermost in their business philosophy; after all, you don't get to stay in business for more than 55 years if you aren't doing a good job of international shipping, and looking after your customers.
