In tough economic times, companies look for ways to not only cut costs, but do things more efficiently. One area where more and more companies look to outsource is their shipping, particularly items requiring specialized packing. Boston Pack and Ship, a small load shipping specialist for two decades, works with a number of companies as a quasi-shipping department.
“Many of these companies only ship product out less than a half a dozen times a month and many of the products they sell are electronic or computer type equipment which is a specialty to ship. So the dollars to have that expertise in-house might not be in the budget but at the same time it’s a necessity to growing their service. We provide that capability without all the overhead,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship.
Long time Boston Pack and Ship customer Pulse Systems Inc, of Canton, Massachusetts started in 1972, which designs systems for a wide variety of applications including, but not limited to weather monitoring, meteorological systems, wind shear detection, airborne Doppler radar, shipboard Doppler radar, homeland security, military and defense.
“The systems we design are quite sophisticated and require special care for shipping. Due to the rapid growth of our business, many of our systems are being packaged by Boston Pack and Ship. We found that, in addition to having our own shipping department, it was more economical to have some of our shipping needs outsourced to Boston Pack and Ship, a company with more than two decades of shipping experience,” said Ethel Poulos, vice president of Pulse Systems, Inc.
