At ASL Forwarding, courier service is a large part of our business. It’s a familiar term, but many people aren’t clear on what a courier service is or its best use. That’s why we’ve put together this beginner’s guide to courier service. Read on to learn what courier service is and what makes it the right choice for many businesses.
Courier Service: The Basics
In short, courier service is a specialized shipping service that offers services not available by standard postal shipping. National companies like UPS and FedEx are couriers. They ship packages independently of the postal service and offer some shipping services that the USPS doesn’t provide.
But most people aren’t thinking of big, national companies when they talk about courier services. They’re thinking of smaller, regional firms like us that specialize in secure, door-to-door delivery of documents and packages. In a local courier model, typically one person (the courier) picks up and drops off the delivery. There’s no long, extensive chain of custody that could allow for parcels to be lost.
Who Uses Local Courier Service?
All sorts of people use a local courier service. It’s popular with attorneys, who need sensitive documents delivered quickly by hand. Others in related industries like exporters and customs brokers have the same needs.
But it doesn’t stop with those industries. If your business needs documents or packages delivered locally or even nationally with same day service, then courier service is an excellent choice for you.
