Sounds simple, but check your invoices! This loops back around to courier tip #1, but you’re coming at the same thing from the other end. Your invoice is where you find out what extra charges you’re being hit with to plump up your bill. It’s very unlikely that the price your procurement people got quoted is the price you’re actually paying. Look out for surcharges for things like domestic delivery, fuel and even covid. It might be that you’re OK with all these charges, but it’s worth at least informing yourself. At Mailbox Express we quote exactly what we’ll actually charge because we think transparency is good for everyone. Not a lot of generalist couriers can say the same. If you want some advice on all of this, feel free to get in touch with us for a friendly no strings attached chat.
