Shipping for Businesses
When business is booming, there’s nothing more important than having a reliable shipping solution for your products. If you want to reduce shipping costs and speed up delivery times, then it might be time to start thinking about with a 3PL that has experience shipping for businesses, like MoveIt®.
Finding a 3PL
As your business grows, new demands arise. How will you ship your products in bulk? What about shipping to other businesses? Do you need someone to unpack, set up your products, and remove debris? Tackling these questions alone can be incredibly difficult – especially if you’re busy managing or running a team.
That's where we come in.
At MoveIt®, we understand the nuances of shipping for busy commerce businesses. Depending on your shipping volume, we’ll assign you an experienced transportation expert to help you design an unbeatable logistics strategy.

Depending on the size of your business and the makeup of your freight, we offer a variety of scalable shipping services to meet your needs. Before you choose a 3PL, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I need residential delivery for my product?
- Does my product require inside set up?
- What is my shipping volume? Is it enough to fill an entire truck?
- Is my shipment fragile? Will it require special handling and care?
- Do I need to ship internationally?
- What part of the shipping process is currently the most challenging?
If you’re unsure how to answer any of these questions, then it’s best to set up a free consultation with one of our transportation specialists. They’ll be able to help you find the best method of shipping for your items as well as a fast, free quote.
