Where Do You Stand With Delivery?

The age old commercial shipping question of: ‘Free? Or fast?’ continues to course through the operating minds of any business. Ultimately, the solution for any company is going to be doing what its specific consumer needs and wants. For some businesses, lower costs are the route to take, while others want to be sure to get items to customers within a short period of time. Speed has long been a focus for many retailers. For example, a study in 2019 showed that 39% of customers were more likely to buy if next-day delivery was an option. In 2021, another study found a switch had occurred, with 59% of people saying that free shipping was more important to them. On the other hand, if consumers agree to free shipping, they still often expect their order to arrive within a short amount of time, just a few days in most cases. That can complicate matters for some companies that may need to find warehouse space that is closer to their customer centers to ensure faster delivery is an option. Ultimately, there’s a lot that must be considered before deciding on which shipping option is right for your organization. To learn more about the ways in which either of these options might be the best choice for your customers and your business at large, continue reading on to the resource featured alongside this post.
