Cost Saving Shipping Tips for Businesses - Honolulu Hawaii With the rising costs of shipping, here are some tips to help businesses not only save some money but also effectively get their products out to their customers.

1. Use light packing materials - Old newspapers, bubble wrap and Styrofoam popcorn are lightweight options for packing your items. Best part of it is that you can re-use these from shipments that you have received previously

2. Check your box size so you don't send out mail that is unnecessarily too big - Ever had a postal employee suggest cheaper options when mailing a package at your local post office? It pays to listen to them. Using packaging that closely matches the size of the items to be shipped can save you on shipping costs.

3. Sending heavy items? Consider flat rate. - If you are sending heavy packages, then USPS' Priority Mail Flat Rate packaging would be the way to go. As long as your package does not to exceed 70 pounds for domestic shipments, the cost will be the same. You can also order the flat rage boxes online at usps.com and shipped to your home for free.

4. Stop guessing, use a postage meter - This helps to determine the exact weight of your shipments and can help you reduce your delivery costs.

5. Shipping internationally? Do some research first - International shipments may be subject to special duties and taxes depending on the the country you are sending it to as well as the value of the product being shipped and the method of shipment you will use.
