Whether you’ve got cosmetics, styling tools, or raw materials to move, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right transportation partner for your business.
Going Beyond Parcel
Many beauty startups begin with parcel delivery. But when business is booming, shipments can get larger, and the need to scale up arises. If you have more cargo than a simple parcel delivery but not enough to fill a truck, LTL (less than truckload) may be the solution for you.
Pay Attention to Formulation
A major consideration when shipping beauty products is whether your cargo would be regulated as hazardous materials. According to the Department of Transportation, aerosol sprays, mouthwashes or antiseptics, and curling irons or electric toothbrushes with lithium batteries may fall under this category. It’s important to know whether a product requires extra care when handling.
One Solution for Many Needs
Cargomatic’s marketplace connects businesses of all sizes with a network of 22,000 drivers across the country. Drivers are equipped to meet a variety of requirements, whether you’re moving product from the port to the warehouse, or from your office to a customer’s business. Get instant access to trucks in your area, and only pay for as much space as you need — no need to pay full price for a truck when you’ve only got a few pallets to ship.
