A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post how I decreased shipping costs on Barney Butter.
I’ve optimized the costs once again to further increase my margin.
I first optimized my costs by changing from packaging individual units in a box costing $0.28 cents to a poly bag costings $0.185. The poly bag was larger than it needed to be, so there was an opportunity to downsize.
I’ve switched to a new poly bag that costs $0.11 a bag.
The cardboard box I purchased costs came in quantities of 25 for $51.41. It costs $2.06 per box. Similar to the original poly bag, the box was larger than it needed to be. I’ve since found a slightly smaller box that I can purchase 25 for $28.59. It costs $1.14 per box. That’s a 44.6% decrease in costs.
