Although many things go on behind the scenes of a Fulfillment company, shipping is the most noticeable. Customers and business partners want their goods delivered quickly and reliably. For Business-to-Customer sales this is especially true. According to some studies, around 55% of carts are abandoned because of unexpected extra costs like shipping.
For businesses that are just starting out, or have a lower volume of sales, getting good rates can be a problem. A common situation is that the shipping costs are then higher than your profit margin, and you have to transfer the shipping costs to the customer. The customer, in turn, is very likely to be dissuaded from purchasing your product because of high shipping costs.
Even when costs are not an issue, delivery times still are. Especially products sent directly from the factory with standard shipping can take months to get to their destination. Customers are likely to avoid this as much as possible.
Add to that list of possible issues problems that might arise when dealing with the delivery company. For example, smaller shipment deliveries might not receive tracking numbers. This leaves you without valuable information and your customer anxious for a long time. Not to mention the fact that paying for shipping insurance up-front is virtually impossible for smaller
