The courier industry today is a real cut throat industry and volume is a key player in a company’s survival then we also have specialist services which commits itself to specialist or high value goods and we also have cold-chain mainly in the pharma industry.
But getting a job done on time is another factor and often costly too and again distance comes into play if not going through an already established firm which there is plenty to choose from today and with the increasing amount of e-commerce packages being delivered vs the typical high street delivery, companies with timed deliveries are under more pressure than ever and add in the seasonal sales which are about to arrive soon it mean more stress. FOR EVERYONE.
However their attack on other companies doesnt bode well nor is this SITUATION or this SITUATION wholly true, the lanscape has changed in this buisness and using tweets like this with try get some attention is wrong. Many companies now have a leave safe policy once its agreed with the customer and a photo will be taken to show where the package has been left,this has been a common theme on their twitter and facebook feeds all eloquently placed in the same porch. Not wise to attack others we can easily identify who has the contracts from the pictures and we also know they have changed hands several times and in this industry will continue to do so.
DropToU is the “People Powered Delivery Network” is a new player to the already crowded market which could help solve some issues like B2B or B2C via people power. These are here to offer services when non are available or outside standard hours but we also now see an increase in companies offering Saturday Deliveries and this will soon change to a 7 Day a week industry due to high levels of eCommerce and also demands from suppliers.
Regular Package requests cost Senders €12.30 to send. Senders also have the option to nominate the amount they are willing to pay to get an ‘Urgent’ package delivered. This amount is between €30-€300.
See how it works HERE and how you can get invovled to be either a sender or a courier.This could be a good idea going forward having been in the industry over 20 years a people powered network could very well be a good solution and people will pay good money to have urgent packages moved, Again its a competitive market and watching how this company grows will be interesting.
