What is the cheapest way to ship your package you asked? Well, FedEx, DHL and UPS promise certain benefits in exchange for their service fees. All provide point-by-point tracking and on time delivery money-back guarantees for their international shipping services. The only Postal Service option that includes those perks is the most expensive, Express Mail, which offers overnight delivery to most domestic locales but don’t get your hopes up, their express international service is not even in the same league
Who should you use for shipping, DHL, US Postal Service, UPS or FedEx? Being in Retail shipping business industry for over a decade, we get this question often. People always seem to be confused by the options. Plus you get everyone telling you different things about the pluses and minuses of their favorite carrier. If you throw the customer representatives who call your phone into the mix, you will be extremely confused about making your shipping carrier decision.
Online retailers often advertise free shipping.. but is FedEx, UPS or the post office are not delivering your goods free of charge, someone is paying them and that is you at the end of the line! For the first example lets look at a purchase of a dress shoes. It not time sensitive, it can take a week or two to get to where it needs to be and it’s still shoes. Places like the larger fashion retailer stores have warehouses around the country and the shoes are shipping using the closest warehouse and the least expensive way possible. In this case the shipping may actually be minimum, it will not eat into seller’s profit.
