Value Added Service

What Are Value Added Services in Shipping?

Value added services are additional services provided by carriers or others in the shipping process beyond just delivering products. An example would be offering signature confirmation to your customers.

Other common value-added services include:

  • Package Pickups
  • Hold at Location
  • Collect on Delivery (C.O.D.)
  • Certificate of Origin for international shipments
  • Carbon Neutral Shipments
  • Customized returns
  • Saturday Delivery

There are plenty of other value added services you can add to your shipping processes, but your choice will depend on the carrier you’re using and your specific business needs.

Each carrier you use will have a different set of value added services and the cost of those services will also vary.
