E-commerce has created a buzz for online shopping that’s here to stay – in all product domains. Today, delivery of jewellery entails distances that could cut across states and even nations. Delivering precious and even semi-precious jewellery for that matter is a great liability and responsibility for a jewellery, or jewellery retailer. The process involves risks of damage and theft right from dispatch to final delivery. Certain procedures, if followed, however, make the process a lot easier.
Hiring a renowned gems and jewellery logistics company is the best way to ensure your products will reach their destination safely and securely.
Most logistics companies offer the facility of tracking the shipment and ready updates for the status of the package that has been shipped. Tracking codes can be shared with your consumers, so they may also be able to track the delivery status of their purchase in real-time, and can estimate when their parcel will arrive.
Jewellery packages need to be handled with care. Logistics companies that deal with transport of gems and jewellery have staff who handles your delicate parcels with the appropriate care.
Safe jewellery delivery also relies on proper packaging of jewellery such that chances of breakage and damage are eliminated to a large extent. Even the best handling may not be good enough if packaging is not done properly. One could let the logistics company do the packing in one’s presence at your store or manufacturing facility.
Logistics companies are quite familiar with the required paperwork, and take care of that process as well. They also deal with customs issues, etc, at ports of entry.
A good way to ascertain the level of service being provided by your logistics company is to engage your customers in a feedback process. This will help you ascertain the condition in which your product is reaching your customer, including the outside packaging. No buyer of jewellery wants even the outside packaging to reach them in a shabby manner.
