Trucking & Courier News

In our 45 years as a courier express company we’ve learned a thing or two about the industry. Read our blog for practiced guidance on all things courier, warehousing, supply chain, and more.

Winter Elements and The Shipping Industry

Bad weather can significantly affect several aspects of business operations. It should come as no surprise that snow and ice can also cause delays in the shipping industry. Delayed deliveries can cause big headaches this time of year, especially since customers are expecting orders to arrive in time for the holidays.

What to Do with Dead Stock

As a business owner, if you are struggling to figure out what to do with dead stock, it may be time to consider offering customers an incentive for purchasing these items. Here are some ways to move dead stock off those shelves and into the homes of loyal customers.

Hand Carry Service

Businesses that are focused on customer satisfaction tend to spend time researching and understanding the variety of shipping options available today. Making sure deliveries go out and arrive on time is one of the most significant responsibilities shipping departments have. Using traditional shipping services like standard mail or courier delivery are the most common. However, what should a business do when they need to ship something of value? Should a diamond ring, antique clock, or medication be sent in the same manner as an easy-to-replace household item? If your business needs to deliver more valuable or time-sensitive items, hand carry service may be a better solution.
