Same Day Courier Service

Same Day Courier Service or Next Day Delivery?

To achieve success in the B2B world, you need to be able to offer a fast and efficient delivery service. Clients are no longer happy to wait days to receive their order. They want it within 24 hours.

When it comes to choosing the delivery method of your parcels, pallets or freight, you need to weigh up the pros and cons of same day couriers and next day delivery companies.

Why choose a same day courier service?

The main benefit of a same day delivery service is that it allows businesses to meet clients’ tight deadlines. Delivery companies such as Greg Paulson Same Day Couriers can pick up pallets, documents or parcels within the hour, meaning an urgent same day delivery is easily completed. The more flexible you can be in meeting clients’ requests, the more likely you are to win their loyalty and secure more business with them in the future.

Comparison of same day delivery versus next day delivery

There are various factors to consider when comparing same day delivery versus next day delivery:

  1. Speed – Same day has an obvious speed benefit over next day delivery, in that it’s delivered a day earlier! How important this is can only be decided by the customer, but it’s a major reason for using same delivery.

Business efficiency – It could be of massive benefit to a business to receive same day delivery, e.g. to receive a part to fix a broken machine – which impacts production levels, etc.

  1. Delivery Cost – There are obvious cost differences between same day delivery and next day delivery.

Next day delivery prices rely on many parcels or pallets being sent on each vehicle. With same day UK delivery Greg Paulson Same Day Couriers provide a dedicated vehicle for each shipment.

Distance – A next day delivery to most parts of the UK will cost the same price. A same day delivery from Manchester to London will cost the same as from London to Manchester. Same Day delivery will cost more the further away the delivery is.

  1. Cut off times – Depending on the time ordered it may not be possible to arrange a delivery for the same day. Depending on the courier you choose this also applies to next day delivery. The more options you have to choose from, the better you can meet your customers’ needs.
  2. Collection Time – If you need to organise a pickup from a supplier within a short time period a dedicated same day courier is usually the best option

Next day couriers will normally collect at some point during the day and not within a tight time frame.

If needed a dedicated same day courier will wait until the goods are ready to collect.


A next day delivery will always be cheaper in the long run due to the economies of scale that can be achieved by the major carriers. However, same day delivery is faster, more direct and more flexible. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Here at Greg Paulson Same Day Couriers, we pride ourselves on the quality service, which means that no matter where you are in the UK or where you need to ship your clients’ product to, we are able to meet your needs to the highest standards.

Greg Paulson Same Day Couriers are definitely a transport company that UK businesses can rely on.
