West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Over the past decade, Ecommerce has grown into an essential component of many US businesses. This has helped businesses reach out to the international market, thus expanding their customer base and ultimately increasing sales figures. Many online businesses have faced challanges shipping overseas due to the high costs of shipping to international markets. This has forced businesses to either restrict their sales to a particular region or to seek innovative solutions to overcome this disadvantage.
One such company that has innovatively dealt with the shipping problem in its Ecommerce division is Cristia Medical Supply, Inc. The company has recently partnered with Bongo international, a shipping and mailing company that will help ship medical supplies and medical equipment to customers internationally. Through this move Cristia Medical Supply, Inc. will be able to meet its goal of quality, affordability and customer satisfaction, by providing an efficient and cost effective system that will ship its products internationally through bongo.
Bongo's primary function is to enable companies to cut their shipping costs by consolidating received merchandise and then forwarding the merchandise in one bulk shipment. By doing this they are able to capitalize on the economies of scale, thus resulting to lower shipping costs than when the items are sent individually. This is a big plus for international customers that otherwise would not have access to certain products provide by companies in other countries.
According to Cristia Medical Supply, Inc. CEO Cristopher Cristia, “ The Bongo shipping service is ideal for our company as many of the products we carry are large medical equipment items that are very costly to ship. This has made international shipments of such medical equipment nearly impressible until now”. Another advantage of using bongo as an international carrier is that while the normal postal services and other international carriers put size and weight restrictions on the goods transported Bongo does not. This open the doors to many possibilities that have until now been off limits.
Another very important aspect that must be considered when looking for an international carrier is the issue of security. International shipping can prove to be a very risky engagement thus making it mandatory for companies to look for shipping services that have a proven track record of security. Bongo has a reputable fraud protection service and an ecommerce platform that is based on the IP address fraud score component.
The cumulative effect of introducing a cheaper shipping platform is that companies are able to increase their global reach and subsequently increase their sales resulting in higher profit margins. Besides increased profitability such companies are also able to guarantee fast and effective delivery of purchases to their customers.
