    Cool Busy eComm looks for independant drivers

    Hi there,

    We're a young, but steaming along, eComm store finding that our biggest killer is shipping - like 99% of stores I'm sure!

    We ship nationwide and our packed orders vary immensely in order size. We have to use multiple couriers to get items to all corners of SA which causes even more variance in price. It's nearly impossible to budget accurately to ensure that we aren't perpetually paying more in shipping charges than the profit made off the order contents.

    We have a proposal for anybody out there (retired, students) with reliable transport, a friendly demeanor and a good load of honesty. Currently we'd be looking outside of Gauteng as we pay the most to ship to the other provinces.

    We will bulk ship a box of pre-packed orders to you, you would deliver them within your area for a set fee per delivery.

    Anybody have any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Robyn

    Chat to my good friend at MDS, and negotiate. He does special rates for companies who require deliveries country wide.

    I suggest use the private message facility (which seeing as this is a public thread will also save you from having your email address harvested by passers by)
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    am from Durban and have my own bakkie- so i can help u out.
    i have PM'ed u but have not received a reply yet.

    from your posts, it seems you have not posted anything apart from your other thread where u ask for advice regarding problems u are having with your business.

    hope it all works out well
    and maybe you should liquidate the company & u and 2nd partner start another company & look for another investor?
    but this time, heed all the advice given on other thread
    A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
