I am currently setting up pricing for a new beverage, and I'm down to figuring out how much delivery is going to cost, and how to recoup that. Obviously, distributors prefer delivered pricing, but should I just incorporate the delivery costs into the cost and give everyone different prices? Also, are there alternatives to doing less than full load shipping from a warehouse to individual distributors? For example, do larger manufacturers rent out sections of their trucks?
