We have become used to hearing that knock on the front door, or the doorbell ringing only to find a courier, parcel in hand waiting for a signature.
Very often we take Couriers for granted.
They appear, collect parcels, travel to their destination and drop off the consignment to its recipient.
But why do we use Couriers? Couriers are important for any business that offers any sort of delivery service.
For example • An online e commerce business absolutely relies on a courier to get their products from the warehouse to the customer.
• A high street florist might rely on a courier to get flowers to a house on a specific day.
• A formula one team might need an all-important part for a car before it can go out on the track.
• A builder or joiner might rely on a courier to deliver a part within a certain timescale, in order for them to complete their job.
• A law firm might need a set of documents for signing before a specific deadline.
• Or maybe you just need to send a birthday present to your cousin in New York! One of the reasons people use a courier company is convenience.
People have their own jobs to do, so it would not make sense for them to drive 200 miles to drop off a parcel.
It doesn't make economical sense.
It might also be that their parcel needs to go overseas, so using a Courier company is much more efficient.
As there are now so many courier companies in the UK they are all looking at different ways to make them stand out from the crowd.
This is usually done by either price or a claim to provide a service (or part of a service) that another courier company doesn't provide.
This is great for the consumer as it means they often get more value from their courier than the might have done in the past.
There are so many reasons that people use courier companies it's impossible to list them all.
The basic matter of fact is that we call upon courier companies when we need something to be delivered to someone - no matter how critical.
