Below are a couple of tips to follow to make sure your company’s expectations of quality are met:
1. The cheapest shipping option is not always the most suitable
Many people try to save money by choosing the cheapest shipping option, by ground, in an effort to reduce transport costs. But the fact is that this may not serve your customer well,. Some purchases, especially impulse purchases, require quick delivery and are often requested to be shipped overnight.
2. Avoid using costly, over-engineered materials
The issue is that overnight shipping does not require very robust insulation. A lot of the insulated packaging products out there are over-engineered for packages only require 24-hour shipping, and cost more than is required for the task. IPC carries a variety of products in their CooLiner category that are both low cost and suitable for overnight (24hr) transit times.
3. Always use thermal protective packaging

Keep in mind, for shipping perishables, that using proper thermal packaging is a must. In order to keep perishables chilled for the entire transit duration, insulation must be used to defend from the increased ambient temperatures that may spoil your goods. The last thing you want is for expensive seafood or meat to be thrown out due to improper packing.
