Speed and time of delivery – The best courier
The speed of order fulfillment is undoubtedly an important factor when choosing a courier company with which we intend to cooperate. Many Many customers will be happy to pay more for reducing the waiting time for the purchased product. Especially when it comes to value goods and those of the “premium” class. Speed, combined with the reliability of the courier company, translates into positive opinions about the store, and this, in turn, its success on the market.
Most professional courier companies deliver parcels within 1-2 business days from the date of shipment. The final delivery time therefore depends on factors such as:
- Location – The closer the customer who orders the shipment lives to the warehouse, the faster the order will reach him. The deadline for implementation is usually (but not necessarily) extended in situations where the destination address is located in a secluded place, away from residential areas.
- Time of the year – Certain times of the year are critical for couriers. A perfect example is the pre-Christmas madness in December, when parcels are sent several times more than in the other months on average. Therefore, let’s make sure that the courier company we have an eye on is well prepared for such heaps of orders.
- Time of sending the parcel – The time of the day when we decide to send the parcel is also important. The final delivery time depends both on how early we send it and on the internal policy of the courier company, which itself manages the working hours of its couriers and the activities they perform. Delivery times are crucial: if we send a product to a company, make sure that the courier reaches the company before 4 p.m. If, on the other hand, the recipient is a private person, the afternoon hours will be more convenient, during which the customer can safely pick up his product at home after returning from work.
