In business, one of the most important things you can do is save money on shipping. But by consolidating packages into one box, you can actually save more money than you might expect. Here’s what that means and how it works. You’re probably thinking, “but isn’t it more expensive for me to send my packages in one box?” No! It’s actually the opposite. Shipping rates are based on the size and weight of a package, not how many you send – so you’ll save money by merging all your small packages into one big box. For example, if you’re sending five different packages that weigh one pound each, it will end up costing you the same to send them all separately as it would if you sent them in one box that weighs 5 pounds.
