Stolen packages are an unfortunate reality for online retailers, so if you own an ecommerce business, chances are you have some unwanted experience in this area. Since most packages are delivered during business hours, tricky thieves have started targeting abandoned packages as they sit waiting for the home owner’s arrival. As a result, online businesses are forced to eat the costs of replacing stolen packages, or opt for other ‘solutions’ such as requiring a signature for delivery.
There has to be a better way of dealing with (and preventing) stolen packages! And as it turns out, there is.
In a recent article on Endicia’s Savvy Shipper blog, Ramon Ray (of Small Biz Technology and Smart Hustle magazine) reviews a new solution to the problem of stolen packages – an innovative app called Doorman. Whether you’re a customer who is worried about stolen packages, or an online retailer who wants to keep up on shipping technology, this article is for you.
