PRE-ORDER: The eCommerce Seller’s Guide to
2018 Shipping Rate Changes
Available: December 2017
All the major carriers—the United States Postal Service (USPS), FedEx, and UPS—are rolling out price increases for 2018; regardless of which carrier(s) or service(s) you use, these changes will affect you.
But don’t panic—once again this year, the content team at ShippingEasy is hard at work updating our award-winning eCommerce Seller’s Guide to Shipping Rate Changes to help you navigate the changes and get the most out of every penny you spend on shipping in 2018. It’s the only resource you’ll need to:
- Understand and compare the changes across all major carriers: We will provide a side-by-side comparison of the changes and guidance on how to interpret them for your business.
- Find the most cost-effective carrier for a given set of shipping parameters: Through a set of easy to use tables, you will be able to quickly determine what carrier provides the best pricing for a package based on its weight, destination zone, and delivery time (e.g. overnight, 2-3 day, and greater than 3-day), and whether there are alternative services (e.g. USPS First-Class Mail®, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate®, or USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate® boxes) that may be even more cost effective.
- See how the changes impact real-world eCommerce businesses: We’re once again analyzing proprietary, anonymous ShippingEasy client data to calculate the impact of the planned rate increases for specific shipping situations—and how the impact can be mitigated by looking at alternative carriers and/or services.
