How people use a courier service
So one of the most common things that gets mixed up about a courier service is people actually think we’re messengers – which we’re not. So today – we’re going to make a real effort to describe to people what exactly it is that courier services do, what makes them different and what kinds of services they offer.
Let’s jump right in!
What a courier actually is
So let’s start really basic here, and define what an actual courier is. Cours are a company or an employee of a company that helps deliver commercial or residential packages and documents. We’re usually a little bit more expensive than standard options – largely because we’re a little bit higher level of service and in many cases – specialize in a very specific kind of delivery. They often justify the price through being faster or providing extra security measures for whatever your delivery might be.
We operate on a range of scales – from merely working in single cities or towns to a network of cities, states or even having the ability to work both nationally and internationally. Some are pretty sizable, others are simply more like small businesses themselves.
A good example
The main appeal to most about using our services is that we’re faster and there’s no risk of your package getting lost among others or delivered to the wrong place. It’s often going from A to B and doing so quickly. There’s other security features that allow you to track the package – but most of the time those are optional.
You can have a required signature on your letter or package, or be very specific about precisely where and when something needs to be. There are also express delivery options which allow for even more speed – and in some cases – services that include same-day delivery. This is particularly valuable in instances where maybe it’s legal documents or medical needs – where time is always of the essence.
Courier services have become particularly popular in population centers and urban areas. They’re particularly capable of getting around – because they can use bicycles, motorcycles and the like – allowing them to navigate through heavy traffic area with ease – particularly when delivering smaller packages and deliveries.
There are other couriers who specialize in the big stuff. Bulk shipments, large shipments, you name it. They’ll usually come with a full fleet of trucks, flat beds and the like. There’s even some courier services who’ll let you choose the kind of vehicle you want for your delivery. Whatever your needs are – you have the ability to customize your services to your needs.
