Shipping services

What is a shipping service?

Shipping services in logistics include all shipping services offered. These include, for example, courier services, parcel services and express services. However, shipping from a warehouse is also considered a shipping service. In warehouse logistics, the logistics company operating the warehouse is usually responsible for shipping the stored goods.

What processes and tasks does a shipping service involve?

If a shipping service is used by a customer, this involves many different processes. Which ones are really needed depends on the type of goods to be transported and the shipping method.

Shipping services include, for example:

  • Order acceptance
  • The removal of goods from storage
  • Preparation for dispatch in the form of picking, palletizing and wrapping goods
  • The issue of all required documents
  • The organization of the transport
  • The provision of goods
  • The actual shipping and transportation

If the goods are special goods, such as hazardous goods or special goods with excess dimensions or weight, additional processes are required.
