How to Decide: Private Courier vs. Larger Shipping Organizations

When you have a package, medical delivery or document to send or if you often ship products to your customers, you have a couple of shipping options to choose from. You can either go with a larger shipping organization or one of the private courier services.

So how do you decide?

Compare Costs

If your decision comes down to cost, your best bet is to go with a private courier service. They are more flexible with cost and the “flat rates” aren’t mandated.

If you’re shipping locally, a private courier also tends to offer much better shipping rates.

With larger organizations, there are a lot of hidden costs such as fuel surcharges, rush fees, weekend deliveries and more. It does add up!

Reliability and the Time Factor

The private couriers will always win on this front – and fast, guaranteed overnight delivery is usually one of the main reasons why business owners might choose to send their packages via courier over others.
