How To Use GS Shipping Calculator For Consolidated Shipping?



Calculating your shipping cost beforehand with a shipping calculator is essential because shipping rates can vary significantly between companies and methods. Also, every company has different policies regarding their shipping charges and process. 

Therefore, it can be beneficial for you to find out which company offers the cheapest shipping rates. Start researching before actually ordering a shipment of your goods. This way, you will get the best deal along with the best shipping option for your shipping needs. 

Before you start looking for options, you need to know every detail about your goods, like dimensions and weight. In addition, there are other variables that affect the cost of international shipping.


How to Calculate Shipping Cost?

If you are looking for affordable shipping, you should always start by calculating your shipping charges before placing an order with a package forwarding company. 

Almost all the companies that offer international shipping services have a calculator on their website to help customers get an estimate of their shipping cost. So you can always get to know what a particular company will demand for shipping your products. 

Below are the specifications you need to put in a shipping calculator to get an estimate of your shipping cost. 

  • Gross and dimensional weight 

  • Freight classification 

  • Distance

  • How fast do you need to ship 

  • Special handling 

How Fast Your Goods can be Shipped?

Some companies have their warehouses in different locations around the globe. So you can reduce your shipping cost by choosing the warehouse location that is nearest to you.

This will also reduce the shipping time. Look for which areas a company has its warehouses when you are visiting a website for international shipping. 

Also, if you want your products to arrive super fast, you will have to pay a little more to the company for express delivery. This is because charges increase as you reduce shipping days.

You will find many options when you start looking for a package forwarding company to suit your shipping needs. But there are very few options that offer services that make the whole process of shipping easy and affordable.
