These bulky and expensive containers are not necessitated for Dollar Shave because the product is already sold once it ships. The product can also be shipped disassembled, allowing for smaller packaging, and also reduces the risk the product might be damaged en-route. The company currently only offers three different types of razors: The Humble Twin, The 4x, and The Executive. By keeping their designs simple, and their supply chain focused on the single item, they have been able to reduce cost and undercut competition.
Yet, costs could be driven up in the future by diversifying the products they sell. The company has had a large infusion of cash into their operations to expand into shaving creams and wipes, and these goods will change the supply process and put a larger price tag on shipping.
