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 details of the order are sent to the manufacturer or a distributor (third-party company like AmazonĀ®).

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.

WHAT IS A DOUBLE-BLIND SHIPMENT?

When the shipper is blind to the end-customer’s address, the shipment is considered double blind. In the scenario where the shipper and the end customer are clients of the third-party, both the origin location and destination are unknown to any side but the third-party. A 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).
