Cut the Costs of Rogue Personal Shipping with Transtream

Posted on September 10, 2019

Employees sending personal shipments are costing companies whether they realize it or not. 

Sometimes the losses come from allowing employees to ship their personal parcels on corporate accounts with the hope of recovering the costs from payroll deduction or other methods. Sometimes the losses come from employees taking time away from their desks to stand in seemingly endless lines at a drop-off location—and those lines aren’t going to get any shorter as the holidays approach. Sometimes, the losses are even more direct as employees slip their package into the company’s shipments or use the corporate account to send a package anywhere in the world, a problem we call “rogue shipping.”
