Cargo from Turkey

Hi all,

I'm setting up a small internet business to export products from Turkey. How do I go about organizing air freight from Turkey through PTT if I have multiple products? How do I organize the cost of the shipping? wouldn't it be through weight? Do I put up a flat fee for costing? thanks in advance

You donīt say the size of each packet or where you are sending them. Ordinary post seems to work on small items, but if you are exporting tractors that may not do it.
Postage rates - ditto above - if everything is the same size and all going to one country you can have a flat rate, but if you are posting World-wide there will be a scale of charges.

There is a lot of competition for cargo, all the big firms are here, so it really depends what you are doing, and the quantity.

Re: Cargo from Turkey

Thank you for the replies! I am Turkish citizen and at the very beginning of setting up the business, with paperwork etc.

Ian, the item weights are not more than 400 gr. Standard shipping wouldn't work (PTT) because it won't be one off. We're hoping to ship worldwide. The flat rate would work if I focused on one country like you say.

I'm not sure whether at this point it would be worth continuing on with PTT or setting up an agreement with one of the cargo companies either. Shipping is a real pain no matter where you are in the world I guess :/

Why donīt you give customers a choice of shipping options. Because you know the weight of each packet, you can set a table of charges (they are on line). If you look at the most successful businesses, such as Amazon, they will give a range of options, each with a different price. If the items are valuable, you should use a "signed for" service.
The benefit of PTT is that it will pass it direct to the postal service of the destination country, and tracking is good. Some of the other carriers will pass it to another company if they donīt cover the destination.

Re: Cargo from Turkey

That's the thing I'm not sure how to organize it? If I sent about 30 packages a month I need to work out how much it will cost. I can't absorb any shipping costs at this point in time as I'm going through a separation.

Thanks for your advice, much appreciated.

Re: Cargo from Turkey

It should not cost you anything. You make Post & Packing extra to the unit cost. International buyers will understand that, and as long as the costs are reasonable (true and realistic) they will pay. Nobody expects shipping costs to be included in the unit price unless you say it is.

Re: Cargo from Turkey

Thank you Ian.

Will have to go off and get quotes from different cargo companies I guess. I did get a quote from the PTT for one packet but I will need to speak to a central PTT or call to see how to go about doing it for the amount that I suggested. I would prefer to go through PTT but maybe seeing how much there is a variation between that and at least two other cargo companies would help. TNT and UPS are too expensive atm, maybe mng or yurtici may be of benefit...

Thanks for your help.

Re: Cargo from Turkey

Depending on the cost of the item, you can use the postal service or courier companies, the postal service is not really going to give you a discount but a courier company might for regular service.

Again it depends on the final cost to your customer, are they willing to pay $5-10 or $30-$50 for shipping?
