Why should you use an on-demand Courier Service?
Due to the huge growth of online companies such as Amazon, the expectations a customer has for delivery times has changed dramatically over the past few years. This courier service is, known as on-demand delivery. This is becoming the expected standard practice in most cities across the UK. But, because of this, it's making it increasingly difficult for other smaller businesses to compete.
Although an on-demand delivery service may seem like a new idea, courier companies have been offering this kind of service for many years. Both small & large businesses that need to solve logistical challenges to meet their customers’ expectations must consider using on-demand delivery services.
Whether you are a small or large company, below are several reasons why you need to consider using an on-demand delivery company,
Customers often place their orders well in advance, while others may place their order at the last minute because they forgot to do so at an earlier date, meaning they require a last-minute collection & delivery. Being able to cover these last-minute orders can give you an advantage over your competition. Being able to assist your customer when they’re in desperate need will also create loyalty, meaning they’re likely to come back and use you in the future.
Pre-planned delivery routes.
When your collections and deliveries are pre-planned, this will help keep you on track to meet delivery schedules. When booking an on-demand delivery service, businesses can arrange for their consignments to be picked up daily at a specific time, then have delivery carried out at a scheduled time too.
Take advantage of warehousing solutions.
Many courier companies also provide warehousing services too. Outsourcing warehousing and inventory management to a courier company that specialises in shipping are beneficial to a company’s daily delivery turnaround times.
Provide same-day delivery anywhere in the UK.
Courier services can also provide same-day delivery to the whole of the UK. These courier companies handle urgent and time-critical deliveries, picking up and delivering directly to the drop-off point, with no other stops or collections made along the way. This is called a dedicated vehicle delivery. You’re basically getting your own private courier with only your goods on board. Same day delivery and last-mile delivery is brilliant for your peace of mind if the item being delivered is of high value, fragile, or very important or your company needs an extra layer of security.
On-demand delivery can increase productivity because you can turn around orders more quickly. Hiring a courier company means you save time as you won’t have to use one of your employees to drive a company vehicle to carry out deliveries to your customers.
