Wednesday, 4 September 2019 at 11:27
There has been a huge increase in the number of people shopping for goods online. It is convenient and low cost, but there is one important question: Will your goods arrive safely & on time? This is when you should search for a courier service that is reliable and can be relied upon to deliver the goods on time!
Have you ever wondered how difficult it actually is to be a delivery driver? Heavy traffic, bad weather conditions and road accidents are all causes of major headaches for the couriers who deliver your goods. They're still expected to carry out your delivery though!!
Below are some odd deliveries & situations delivery drivers have found themselves in whilst carrying out the job of a courier.
There was a delivery driver who had to escape his courier van because a swarm of bees attacked him! Believe it or not the bees were a part of a consignment he was delivering, which somehow managed to escape, and since the truck was closed, they had nowhere else to go.

But the strangest and most audacious courier delivery should be that of a live person. This happened in 1849, when Henry Brown spent 27 hours, curled inside a delivery crate so that he could be reunited with his family, Henry was born a slave and was dismayed when his wife and child were sold to a different slave owner. He came up with the plan to mail himself to where his family was.
While the above interesting stories talk about what difficulties the courier service providers go through, we need to choose a courier service that delivers to your satisfaction. I also came to know that there are many different types of courier services, a few among them include:
SAME DAY COURIER SERVICE: This service is used collect & deliver your goods to theon the same day using a dedicated vehicle, meaning nothing else is on board. You have yourown personal driver and vehicle. Once your parcel, documents or package has been picked up, it will be taken to the delivery address in the quickest time possible. This service will be more expensive than the others, but you will have peace of mind that your items will arrive safely and on time.
NEXT DAY COURLER SERVICE: Similar to standard courier services. However, these are costlier but assure delivery the next day.
INTERNATIONAL COURIER SERVICE: These charges are based on the distance, size and also the country where the parcel has to be delivered
While most courier services have their own restrictions on what they will and will not courier, do keep in mind the difficulties they will face on their routine beat, before asking them to deliver your parcel!
