What Is Blind Shipping?

Shippers send a blind shipment when a third party handles the warehousing and delivery of the product. The shipper does not want the end customer to know that a third party is involved. The bill of lading (BOL) will show the shipper’s name and address rather than the third party’s. Shipping blind is important to some companies.

Why Use Blind Shipping?

Let’s say you license your salad dressings to other companies. They receive the ingredients and then mix and bottle them before selling them to their own customers. You don’t stock the ingredients in your own place of business and don’t want to mess with the shipping. You have the wholesaler of these ingredients ship them directly to your licensee.

By using blind shipments, you keep the licensee in the dark about the wholesaler’s name and address, so you don’t have to worry about them cutting you out and going directly to the distributor.

Is There an Extra Cost?

Depending on the level of service, the carrier may assess a fee for each blind shipment. The consignee or paying party will be assessed additional accessorials, such as re-labeling.

What Are The Benefits of Blind Shipping?

1. Maintaining Confidentiality:

Blind shipping helps maintain the confidentiality of the supplier’s identity. This is particularly useful in protecting business relationships, as it prevents the end customer from bypassing the intermediary to deal directly with the supplier.

 

2. Protecting Competitive Advantage:

By hiding supplier information, companies can safeguard their competitive advantage. If competitors cannot identify the source of the products, they are less likely to poach suppliers or undercut prices.

 

3. Streamlining Logistics:

Blind shipping can simplify logistics by allowing drop shipping directly to the end customer without revealing the intermediary’s identity. This can reduce handling time and potential errors in the supply chain.

 

4. Enhancing Brand Perception:

Businesses can enhance their brand perception by ensuring that all shipments appear to come from their facilities. This can increase customer trust and loyalty, as the end customer perceives a seamless and consistent service experience.

Do You Need a Double-blind Shipment?

When the shipper is blind to the end customer’s address, the shipment is considered double-blind. Many Companies In this scenario, where the shipper and the end customer are the third party’s clients, the origin, location, and destination are unknown to any side but the third party. The third party or distributor will ship double-blind when they do not want the shipper to obtain the contact information for the end customer (consignee). If you can utilize or are interested in setting up blind shipping for your company, contact a FreightCenter Agent at 800.716.7608.

How Is Blind Shipping Different From Drop Shipping?

Blind shipping and drop shipping are similar in the following ways:

  • The seller (shipper) does not want to warehouse or store inventory of their product
  • The seller also does not want to manage order shipping and handling.
  • The order details are sent to the manufacturer or a distributor (third-party company like Amazon®).

But blind shipping differs from drop shipping in that in blind shipping the third-party warehouse or distributor is not mentioned on the shipping documents for business reasons, and that’s a very big difference.
