Operating a business in the global economy has become increasingly difficult over the last few years. With companies operating globally on at least some level, the impact of these challenges is being felt across all industries and involves entities of all sizes.

New compliance and regulations, changing consumer demands, rising transportation costs, and the need for good technology and communication can all impact how goods move around the globe.

Gaining visibility over supply chains while achieving profitability goals while meeting the needs of customers is an ongoing challenge for most companies.

Zone Skipping Strategies to Reduce E-commerce Shipping Costs Zone Skipping Strategies to Reduce E-commerce Shipping Costs

E-commerce customers want orders delivered faster than ever, but paying extra for shipping is a deal breaker.

In fact, shoppers abandon orders online half the time due to unexpectedly high shipping costs.

An innovative sortation strategy called zone skipping can reduce shipping costs and boost both profitability and customer retention. Fulfillment centers can assume some of the sortation steps typically required of parcel carriers by taking advantage of latent capacity – offering big results:

  • Faster delivery
  • Reduced shipping cost (25-75 percent less per parcel)

See what zone skipping can do for your operation!
