International shipping refers to the delivery of large quantities of products to businesses at their designated addresses, such as warehouses or medical centers. It mainly serves B2B transactions and does not involve direct delivery to individual consumers.
Businesses commonly choose this method for international transportation needs and to acquire bulk supplies or replenish their inventory. Additionally, businesses benefit from significant discounts on shipment costs due to the large volumes of products being transported simultaneously.
It can be a beneficial method of transportation for businesses as it is commonly linked to larger quantities, leading to lower costs per individual unit. Unlike regional shipping, international shipping is typically conducted in sizable containers and is less expensive. Once a business completes a sale, the manner in which it manages future impact the demand for its later orders.
