Seller A sent a batch of ordinary goods through UPS by TakeSendShip during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday. TakeSendShip received the goods and delivered the goods to UPS. UPS made feedback to TakeSendShip that some employees of TakeSendShip were off duty during the holiday, making it possible for the goods to stranded in the UPS warehouse until the end of the holiday.
TakeSendShip quickly reflected this important information to the seller, who said the goods was urgent and wanted TakeSendShip to help. TakeSendShip then asked the customer service staff to contact the UPS to negotiate for an emergency treatment. UPS responded that during the festival, an express channel for large goods could be used to deliver normally, but seller A’s goods was not up to standard, making it impossible to use the channel to deliver.
Learning this information, TakeSendShip decided to put the seller's goods into a larger packaging box for secondary packaging to meet the standard of the normal delivery channel of the UPS festival and informed the seller that the goods had been sent out normally.
In view of the long-term friendly cooperative relationship with the seller, TakeSendShip bore the full price difference of the transportation costs of the goods.
The seller was very pleased to learn that the goods were sent out normally to reach the customer within the scheduled commitment time limit, and was very grateful to TakeSendShip for its professional and fast service.
