It may seem like simple advice, but when dealing with valuable shipments of jewellery merchandise, you can’t be too careful as you send packages. It’s an everyday risk in the jewellery industry, but shipping losses can also be one of the most frustrating sources of insurance claims for retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, and designers. These types of losses create setbacks and frustrations for not only you, but also other businesses and customers involved in the shipping transaction.
You might be surprised by the amount of calls insurance companies get from their policyholders on items that go missing during the shipping process. Between your shipping operation and your customer’s door, there are countless opportunities for theft and damage. The good news for jewellery businesses is there are steps that can be taken to help ensure shipments arrive intact and on time.
