Understanding the Different Types of Courier Services

Posted on September 21, 2020

With courier services in demand more than ever before, it’s important to understand your options. Courier services provide a higher level of personalized attention that the big name shipping companies can not. Offering real-time tracking, guaranteed same-day delivery, and emergency services, it’s no wonder these companies are in the spotlight. However, courier companies in Mass are vast in their offerings.

In this article, we’re looking at the different types of couriers and potential services they may offer.



Standard Courier Services

Whether you’re looking for a routine medium-sized delivery or using truck couriers for a one-time shipment, standard services generally involve the same parameters. The benefits include peace of mind that your package will arrive where it’s supposed to, when it’s supposed to, to the minute tracking, and the gift of time (which ultimately leads to higher productivity and cost savings).

On-Demand (Emergency) Couriers

Same-day and emergency delivery service is not something that all companies offer. However, finding a local courier service that does provide these benefits is a win for you! Rush or express service is perfect for time-sensitive materials. However, you want to be sure your chosen company is available 24/7, or close to, to have confidence that your emergencies can be handled when you need them to be!



Daily Route Delivery

Some companies, like Fleet Couriers, take it a step further with daily route delivery. This type of service is perfect for companies with a multitude of errands and little time or staff to execute them. For instance, mail and bank runs are an essential part of business, but can often be time-consuming.

With daily route delivery, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your needed tasks will be handled with the utmost level of professionalism, privacy, and accuracy.

Medical Couriers

Unlike the other courier services, medical couriers undergo a more intense level of training and certifications. Obligating to adhering to HIPAA and OSHA regulations, medical couriers are held to the same expectations of an in-office medical worker.
