Admittedly, the weight of the packaging determines the transportation cost. The heavier the package, the higher the cost of transportation. In order to maintain profitability, you need to charge customers the number of freight forwarders. If the weight of the package exceeds your expectations, the shipping cost will be added to your bill. If the weight reading is incorrect, the package may even be rejected and returned to the sender. To maintain the profitability of the business, you must accurately weigh the weight of the products entering and leaving the factory with an accurate scale.
