Making a delivery offer when you’re not a professional courier can be quite a challenge. It becomes even a tougher task when you don’t have the necessary information at hand for calculating shipping prices. To make Parcl forwarders’ work a little easier, we have added two new fields to the request form: ‘City or postal code’ and ‘Item weight’. We hope that having the recipient’s city or postal code and item weight info will help our forwarders make delivery offers faster and with better accuracy, because they won’t need to ask for these details additionally or search for them elsewhere.
Each delivery request will contain this valuable information. Every delivery order will also have the total weight and item price details, which can be used by the forwarder when completing the Customs declaration form. For shoppers who have difficulty specifying item weight we put together the Approximate weight of goods guide. Filling out the improved delivery form will take no more than 10 minutes, and is sure to help the forwarder make the best shipping offer possible.
We believe Parcl forwarders will find these new features useful. If you have any other ideas on how to improve Parcl, please share your thoughts with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, on our Twitter page or our Facebook page.
