Two ways to control the cost of your freight shipments

Looking for new ways to reduce your shipping costs?  Start by ensuring you are not wasting money by carrying weight that can be removed.  Then make sure your shipping cartons are not bigger than they need to be. 

Look for every possible saving, but never do anything that weakens the carton to the point where it could no longer carry your goods safely.  That would be a penny-wise, pound foolish mistake.
