A young company often grows faster than anyone expected. That's certainly exhilarating but can be exhausting as well. Owners may be tempted to make "knee-jerk" decisions about shipping, so they can focus on what they know best – running the business.
But when it comes to getting product into the hands of customers, UPS knows every business is different. And there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for picking up packages ready for shipment.
So whether you're traveling and need a pickup at an alternate location or have ground, air and international shipments all ready to go at once, flexibility and scalability are key. George Downs, a marketing manager at UPS, outlines various UPS pickup options as a primer:
"These options are not necessarily dependent on shipping volume," says Downs. "It's really a matter of customer preference, and figuring out what best fits your situation." Some companies just arrange for routine daily or on-demand pickup to help keep their business running predictably, he says. "But the fact is that customers can save money by choosing the option that best fits their needs."
