I've been working on a product prototype, the goal of this product prototype is to be cheaper, lighter, more compact and obviously less expensive to ship than competitors.
I started researching the cost of shipping for my final design and packaging and was blown away at how expensive it was to ship my item within North America. I've not been shipping anything lately, so I don't have any reference points…
- What has your experience been with shipping costs within your continent this past year or two?
- If you've noticed an increase, can you quantify the % increase?
- Do you have any online resources to share that explains what is going on?
Thanks for your insights on this.
