Small business peak freight tips — All in one place
This guide covers a myriad of helpful freight shipping topics, outlining everything you need to know going into this holiday season, including:
- Packaging your shipments. Though your cargo may be large, it’s the small things that will get your freight shipment from point A to point B without a hitch during your busy season. It may take extra time to properly pack and prepare your freight shipping, but doing so will ensure the best results for a smooth holiday shipping season.
- Holiday shipping schedules. Several carriers don’t deliver or pick up on major holidays. This includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Some carriers also shorten their hours during the holiday season or close early on certain days.
- Dealing with the unexpected. As much as you try to avoid it, loss or damage can still occasionally occur. Delays or damage to your freight shipping can be especially stressful during the busy holiday season, but you can make it easier by creating a response plan ahead of time.
