Is it possible to do LTL shipping for FBA from a storage unit?
I am currently doing FBA. I send in around 800 pounds of books a month using Amazon’s Fedex shipping service. I end up paying around $200- $250 for around 400 pounds of books. In my opinion, it is eating up my profits. I spent $550 in shipping last time! I also always get tons of split shipments but I am starting to think it is because of the software we are using to list which is Accelerlist. Someone recommended we should do private mode instead of live mode.
Anyways… I am seriously considering LTL shipping because there is no way I am going to keep giving FEDEX a big portion of my money. The only problem is, I really have no way of doing LTL in our condominium. There just isn’t any way. Someone mentioned to me that we should consider renting a storage space and preparing the pallets there… not sure if I heard right. I’m pretty sure I did though. How would that work ? Any info is greatly appreciated. I am sick of spending so much in shipping every month ! Thank you !
