Declared value rates continue to increase every year. Companies currently purchasing shipping insurance for their packages through the major carriers can save money using a third party shipping insurance provider.
March 15, 2013 (Newswire.com) - Companies currently purchasing shipping insurance for their packages through the major carriers including UPS, FedEx and USPS, should consider using a third party shipping insurance provider, like Parcel Insurance Plan (http://www.pipinsure.com).
UPS and FedEx have increased declared value charges for 2013 from $.80 with a $2.40 minimum to $.85 with a $2.55 minimum charge. On January 27, 2013, USPS also increased their domestic insured mail prices.
Higher volume commercial shippers who pack and label their own shipments can benefit from a third party shipping insurance provider. Parcel Insurance Plan, an industry leader in third party shipping insurance, can save companies a significant amount of money while still maintaining a streamlined and efficient shipping operation. The carriers (like UPS, FedEx and USPS) charge the same shipping insurance rates to everyone to cover lost or damaged packages. The general public pays the same rate as volume shippers. But business shippers pack better, label better and document their shipments better. Parcel Insurance Plan rewards business shippers with the low rates and excellent service they deserve.
Parcel Insurance Plan (PIP) is an industry leading third party shipping insurance provider that has been in business since 1966. PIP has saved companies, such as yours, literally thousands of dollars in shipping insurance costs. If you are currently insuring packages with UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, or other small parcel or freight carriers, request a third party shipping insurance quote to see how much you can save by insuring with PIP (http://www.pipinsure.com/requestquote.html). Shippers who qualify for Parcel Insurance Plan's shipping insurance program presently spend $1000 or more annually in declared value charges.
