New to Small Package Shipping?

The dedicated shipping experts at PartnerShip are your resource for everything you need to know about small package shipping. Whether you’re determining what service to use, looking for transit times, or need to track a shipment, we are here for you. Below are a few basics to help you get started.

What is Small Package?

Envelopes or packaged shipments that weigh less than 150 lbs. typically move with small package companies. Larger, palletized shipments generally move with LTL freight carriers (LTL stands for less-than-truckload).

Modes and Service Levels

Distinctions between how your shipment is transported are called modes of transportation. Ground shipping and air shipping are two of the most common small package transportation modes that businesses use on a day-to-day basis. Service level refers to the timeframe in which the carrier will ship the package from origin to destination, such as same-day service, next-day, two-day, three-day, etc.

It’s important to remember to choose the right mode and service level that’s best for your shipment. Why pay for next-day service if you don’t need next-day service? Most likely if your shipment isn’t time-critical it will be more cost effective to send it via a two-day ground service instead of next-day air. It may seem like common sense, but it’s a costly mistake that’s easy to make.
