If your business involves shipping products from home, here are three tips to make the process more efficient and cost-effective.

1. Use folding boxes. Buy them flat and construct them as needed. This saves space and you can cut them down to any size you want, so there’s no need to have multiple sizes.

2. Use trackable shipping labels. These labels include a barcode for secure, free tracking of your package, and lets you know where it is while in transit.

3. Utilize online software. Tools like Pitney Bowes’ SendPro Online enable you to print a full address label with a tracking barcode. It even lets you select the best rates between different carriers. You can do all of this without having to go to the post office.

Now, go get all those packages shipped!
