It’s easy to look at a business and think it’s profitable when it’s not. The thing we forget are the costs no one thinks about.
When shipping a product we might think of the trucking or air costs but there are additional costs, such as packing materials, pallets, manpower, insurance, etc.
Airlines want to charge for stored baggage and people think it’s an outlandish costs but what about the additional fuel the weight adds? What about the people it takes to put the bags on the plane, transfer the bags, insure the bags?
The costs of doing business can be somewhat surprising, the more we might recognize all of the costs the more we might start appreciating the deals we get.
Just something to think about.
Have a great day!
