Wasteful Address Corrections Exposed

Wasteful Address Corrections Exposed

Parcel BI specializes in creating business intelligence tools to help companies save money on their parcel spend. There are many areas where a business can be leaking money on their parcel cost, and sometimes you don't even realize it is happening. One of the areas where many companies lose a lot of money is on address corrections.


Carriers are charging up to $16.40 per package for an address correction. Corrections can occur when the information entered is not an exact match to what the carrier says it should be, but the difference is not always significant. Incorrect address charges can result if there is additional information, entering "street" instead of "avenue," the suite number is entered in the street address code as opposed to the second address line, or an incorrect zip code can cause a charge.

Entering incorrect zip codes is often one of the most repeated address correction charges. A lot of times, companies may have a billing ship code and a delivery ship code, and their system doesn't provide the correct one. 

No matter what the reason for the address change charge, these costs will quickly add up. It can easily cost your company hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars per year just because of a simple and easily overlooked error in your shipping process.
