You’ve heard the expression “do more with less.” Is it even possible, or is it just a nice turn of phrase? And what does it really mean, especially when it comes to shipping? While it may not always be fun, doing more with less is definitely doable, and it’s become a necessity for many small and midsize businesses right now.

Some common and unfortunate side effects of the current pandemic are headcount reductions and the accompanying responsibility reassignments. As companies are forced to tighten their belts to preserve their bottom line, staffing reductions are often inevitable. Running lean and seeking out new ways to improve efficiency have become top priorities.

If your business has had to temporarily or permanently downsize your in-house or contract workforce, you and your remaining staff are likely working on ways to do more with less. You don’t have to do it alone. Worldwide Express is standing by to step in and make sure your freight and/or parcel shipping operations work as efficiently as possible through our real solutions, proactive service, and unbeatable local support every step of the way.

  • Replace lost institutional knowledge. Many businesses are currently transitioning the responsibility for shipping to a new person or group of people. These replacements may not as well-versed on the business’s shipping processes as the previous employee, which can lead to a knowledge gap, mistakes, and inefficiencies.

By taking the time to get to know your business, we can serve as a powerful shipping knowledge base that understands your unique needs.

  • Augment existing staff. Many businesses that have retained their shipping point person are still having to deal with reduced headcount elsewhere. This leaves more work on the shoulders of remaining staff, which often leads to employees wearing multiple hats. If this situation sounds familiar, we’ve got you covered.

We thrive on teamwork, and we’re always available to create and track shipments, manage inbound shipping requests, and help out with your shipping processes in any other way you need.
