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.

What is Dropshipping?

Today, there are more than 100,000 online retailers distributing projects across the United States. In some cases, these types of businesses fulfill orders by buying products from a wholesaler. Companies that rely on wholesalers continuously look for ways to make the process as efficient as possible, saving them time and their customers’ money. One beneficial strategy is using dropshipping as an alternative to traditional fulfillment methods.

The Strengths of a Courier Dispatcher

When it comes to running a successful business, employees are the biggest asset of any organization. Hiring employees that lack skills, personality, and motivation can often be detrimental. Not every position in a company requires the same characteristics, but managers should hire for the position accordingly. In the courier industry, one of the key employees is the courier dispatcher. These individuals direct internal traffic, make sure customer expectations are met, and allow daily activities to flow with ease. Because of their role, the strengths of a courier dispatcher are important to look for and understand.

Top Benefits To Same-Day Delivery Service

Running a business isn’t always as simple as owners would wish it to be. Unexpected inconveniences and needs arise from time to time – including emergency deliveries with same-day delivery expectations. Having a same-day delivery option for packages, letters, or important notices is vital for businesses.

Lost In The Mail: What Really Happens

Mailing packages are a crucial component of many companies’ sales and growth strategy. It is especially important for businesses which sell products online or over the phone. Customers trust companies to deliver their orders as promised, in a timely and efficient fashion. Unfortunately, from time to time, packages get lost in the mail causing frustrations for both the customer and the company.

Five Questions You Should Ask When Hiring a Local Courier Service

Plenty of businesses rely on big name shipping services or the post office to deliver products and packages to customers. Many times, larger shipping companies are not a cost-effective choice or have strict requirements on the amount being shipped. With the continued rise of the postage fees by the post office, many businesses are looking for an alternative shipping method. Hiring a local courier service may be the solution that works best for you.

Choosing a Regional Delivery Service Can Be More Effective Than a Big-Name Carrier

Package delivery companies like UPS and Fed-Ex are well-known household names even though there are more than 500,000 registered carriers according to The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Many businesses rely on these two companies to deliver and distribute their packages daily. As a business owner who places customers interests as a priority, you have options and should compare these national options to smaller, regional delivery service companies.
