Add some flair to your packages!

mmiinn has created a great way for shippers and packagers to add the illusion of strong adhesion on box sealing tape. X-tape [hinge] is set to debut this fall and is a great way to add a little flair to your shipments. The idea was birthed in Seoul, South Korea to create an image of packages wrapped tight with hinges. You can now create shipping labels from your Mac and ship them in style with X-tape.

We thought this was a clever way to dress up packages. Information on ordering is available from their site.

Ship smarter with Paperless Invoicing…

A great way to save on paper and reduce the risk of your international shipment getting held up at customs is to use the Paperless Invoicing feature provided by UPS. Paperless Invoicing is offered free to UPS customers and allows for an electronic transmission of customs documents. UPS claims that this reduces the likelihood of customs hold by 41 percent!

Some key features of the Paperless Invoice include:

  • Reduction of risk that the paperwork will be lost
  • Allows importers to keep customs values confidential
  • Reduces the reliance on paper, making the shipment more environmentally friendly

NRG has worked Paperless invoicing into our international shipping solutions.  This is just one of many ways we’ve made it easy for UPS shippers to make the switch to our solutions. If you’d like to learn more about Paperless Invoicing you can visit UPS.com and sign up!

Mistake No. 2: Needless address corrections.

Mistake No. 3: Improper packaging.

Mistake No. 4: Not making use of support resources.

Mistake No. 5. Failing to get UPS help with international services.

According to UPS, shipping should be as simple and seamless as possible. If that’s the case, the list seems to be missing another mistake – Mistake No. 6: Not using NRGship to manage your shipping. This would also solve mistake number 2, since NRGship has integrated address validation.
