Larson note: Well at least you have the time to get your shipping costs in line for upcoming projects. You had to see this was coming, with the spike in gas and fuel costs. Be it UPS. FedEx,. DSL, who ever. Shipping can be a make or break cost in a business, the difference between profit and loss. Keep yours in line.
