Shipping Abroad - Terrifying or Exciting?!

How is business going in the current climate? So many businesses have been struggling to stay afloat, or had to change the way they operate just to survive….does this resonate with you?

Unfortunately, Covid-19 has changed the world, permanently. The world of business has seen a drastic change, in sales, operations, staffing and accounts – many of these changes will be sticking around for the foreseeable, if not forever. Have the changes you have made to your business helped? Have they had a negative impact? Are you looking forward to the future with these changes or dreading it? There is so much uncertainty in the world at the moment that I think everyone is unsure how to feel, how to move forward and how to live their life accordingly.

As a business, we were lucky enough to be able to survive covid-19, and to continue trading successfully. However, it hasn’t been plain sailing for us or our clients and we wanted to take the opportunity to offer some advice, guidance and maybe even some reassurance both personally and professionally.

Throughout this time we have found our clients have experienced many issues (unsurprisingly!) but the main cause of concern is shipping abroad! Sending packages abroad is a terrifying thought, especially if you have only just started your business or just started shipping to countries other than the UK. There is so much to think about; packing, duties, taxes, commercial invoices…the list goes on and on! Does this overwhelm you? Don’t worry – this is very normal!!

Shipping within the UK is pretty straight forward, you know the couriers, you speak the same language and generally you know how it all works. Everything is so different overseas that sometimes it is hard to even know where to start. That’s where we can help – we have extensive experience and knowledge with shipping both within the UK and abroad and can help you, as a business owner, to ship globally without any hitches!

During this difficult time businesses need to make the most of global shipping – you don’t want to be turning away customers from other countries just because you are unsure on how to send parcels out of the UK! The online market at the moment is booming, with more online shopping being done than ever before, online retailers need to react to this – suppling worldwide shipping with no hassle! With Black Friday coming up and orders set to peak you need to be prepared for an influx of worldwide orders – do you have the capacity and knowledge to fulfil this?

Here at thefullworks we specialise in global fulfilment & shipping – allowing you as a business owner to make the most of a global customer base – pushing your business to continually grow and grow. Whether you want some childrens clothes going to Australia or some vitamins sent to USA we have you covered! We are also lucky enough to have special rates with couriers for our continued service, meaning that we are able to pass on these discounts to you – hopefully saving you money when sending across the world.

Overall, shipping abroad can be a nightmare – but working with us can help you to avoid the disasters many are scared of. With savings on offer for shipping costs, label production and commercial invoice completion, we are definitely able to assist you on branching out into the big wide world!

Let us know what you think – and if you have any burning questions and we will be happy to help.
