This July, Freund is offering free parcel shipping on orders of $275 or more. It’s a great way to save on your packaging this summer. But you may be wondering if there is a catch. How are we able to offer free parcel shipping and stay in business?
No Hidden Costs
The cost we incur to offer free parcel shipping (and we do incur a cost) is not being hidden from you. We do not raise our prices to cover this cost and we do not overcharge some customers to cover the cost of free parcel shipping to other customers. Our product prices remain unchanged during a free parcel shipping promotion.
How can we afford to do this? Quite simply, efficiency. We ship our products to over 40,000 satisfied customers each year. And by doing so, we can achieve efficiencies in processing and shipping at the parcel rate that our competitors can’t.
Calculating Your Landed Product Cost
At Freund, we believe that when evaluating packaging suppliers you should factor in both the cost of the product and the cost of shipping to determine your total landed cost per unit. You already know that your product cost from Freund is the best due to our Lowest Price Guarantee. Free parcel shipping will lower your landed cost per unit even more.
Free Parcel Shipping is a Win-Win
It’s not hard to see how our customers can benefit from free parcel shipping, but how does Freund benefit? We benefit through an increase in order volume (which in turn improves our shipping efficiencies even more) and by acquiring new customers. For individuals or companies who are uncertain which packaging supplier to choose, free parcel shipping gives them a low risk way to try us out.
We consider each of our customers a trusted partner. We know that when your business succeeds, we succeed. Free parcel shipping is one way we can help you succeed, but it doesn’t stop there. Fast delivery, the largest in-stock selection of items, personalized service, and no minimums or small order fees are just a few of the ways we offer value to our customers every day.
So free parcel shipping is no gimmick. It is good business for our customers and for Freund. We hope you’ll take advantage of our latest Free Parcel Shipping promotion which runs through July 31, 2015. Just mention code MC715 to a representative or enter it at checkout on our website.
