The 15 Seconds That Costs You Hundreds Of Dollars

Your shipment has arrived and one of your warehouse staff members signs off on the carrier’s delivery receipt. Your staff then calls his colleagues over and unloads the shipment.

Did you catch that very expensive 15 seconds?

It happens all the time – the consignee signs off on the delivery receipt before inspecting the shipment.

It’s only later that you’ll find that 3 of your packages are missing. Or that several of your boxes have been damaged.

Later, you’ll try to file the shipping claim, but your carrier will dismiss your shipping claim with the signed delivery receipt.

Counting the packages and checking for signs of damages before signing the delivery receipt is a simple, obvious thing to do. But is your team doing it, for each and every shipment? It could save you a headache – and hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
