With half of Australian small businesses seeing their sales volumes increase over the festive season1, as the end of year crunch approaches, shipping and freight requirements are more important than ever.
We also know it’s nice to be rewarded for every dollar you spend. So, Qantas Freight has changed the way eligible businesses can earn points on shipping and freight. Simply open an account with Qantas Freight and then every dollar you spend could earn you Qantas Points^. Removing the minimum $1,000 spend each month means we’re rewarding more SMEs, more often and it’s perfect timing with the peak season just around the corner.
Qantas Freight offers a range of options to move your goods from airport to airport across Australia, so we've got your back - and, thanks to no minimum spend requirement, your business gets something back, too.
Unsurprisingly, ABS data shows that the December quarter is consistently the biggest of the year for economic activity2, and as the pre-Christmas sales start to ramp up earlier each year, more and more small businesses will be shipping products across Australia and around the world.
In fact, the Westpac Small Business Report found many small businesses (37%) are funding growth through increased exports, while newer businesses (those that are less than three years old) make half their sales through online channels1.
Wherever you’re sending your products this season and throughout the rest of the year, Qantas Freight makes it easier to get them there, with a range of airport to airport shipping solutions no matter what size your business.
When reliable, economical shipping is what you’re after, Q-GO Classic is timely and cost effective, providing two-day delivery within Australia. When time is tight, Q-GO Express ships goods quickly, with faster processing on arrival for faster delivery to your customers. And if it’s really urgent, there’s Q-GO Priority, which helps you meet those very tight deadlines with guaranteed space on the Qantas or Jetstar flight of your choice.
In short, we can help you find a tailored shipping solution that works best for your business’s supply chain model, how much you’re sending, how often and what it weighs. There are even end-to-end cool room services for perishable products and festive food delivery within Australia.
The benefits of Qantas Freight don’t stop with no minimum spend requirement. Opening a business account not only gives you access to earning points, but you’ll find it easier to do business with booking templates and other online tools, which are perfect for when you’re regularly using the same freight services, and the range of self-service options available online will have your packages on their way in next to no time.
But best of all, as a Qantas Business Rewards member, you could be racking up points with freight solutions and shipments through Qantas Freight, which you can then use to reward yourself or your employees or reinvest into your business (find out how here).
