Landed Cost

Landed Cost Definition:

Landed cost is the total cost of shipping goods, which includes the purchase price, freight cost, customs duties, taxes, insurance, storage costs, and other expenses involved.

Landed cost helps businesses or vendors determine the exact cost of shipping a product to know the optimal pricing of their merchandise. Besides helping you budget and make profits, landed cost lets you get insights into your supply chain's effectiveness and enables you to make informed decisions. Calculating landing costs will help you reduce expenses since you will factor in all the shipping expenses and determine if they are worthwhile or if there is an alternative cost-effective shipping method you can use.
