New businesses are often hesitant of added expenses, and this is certainly not without reason. It is always wise to weigh the cost of any business expense against the benefits. Shipping insurance is an area where the benefits are hugely in its favor. Insured shipping protects your products against a number of hazards, mishaps, and accidents that could range from mildly inconvenient to outright devastating if you had to pay for those losses out of pocket. Here are some reasons why postal insurance through U-PIC is so vital.

Instead of waiting months and months to see your claim properly filed and any issues resolved—as is the case with traditional carrier shipping coverage—U-PIC makes sure that your claim is processed in less than two weeks. This can make a difference when you are trying to connect one end of your business to another halfway across the globe. Plus, U-PIC covers both the replacement cost and the shipping cost. It is the combination of being both affordable and highly effective that makes U-PIC’s postal insurance a better choice over the carrier.

The new and exciting service that is coming to the forefront in the shipping industry is Fulfillment centers. “You sell it, we ship it”. The fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) started this new fad. Basically, a fulfillment center is a place where you as a merchant can store your packages and rely on a business such as Amazon to pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for your products.
As Fulfillment centers continue to pop up, like every business, you have to use trial and error to work out the kinks. The great thing about fulfillment centers is that all of your products are stored at the same place. But here’s the thing; higher quantity means mistakes are more likely to happen. Ship Happens! ™ Customers love the convenience of buying from home until they receive a purchase that has been damaged. Thankfully, shipping insurance can help ease that frustration.
