By November 16, 2015Courier Service

Having a pre-scheduled courier comes with dozens of benefits. It can help you with interoffice mail, eliminate time-consuming post office trips, and keep your payroll and bank deposits on track. Pre-scheduled courier routes are also great for routine deliveries between store or retail locations, or for businesses that want to avoid the hassle of working with UPS, FedEx or USPS.

Interested in setting up a pre-scheduled courier for your organization? Here’s what to do:

  • Determine what sort of schedule you’ll need. First of all, determine what sort of schedule you require. Do you need to send payroll out to all your offices on Friday? Or maybe you need pick-up of interoffice mail every day? You can set a pre-scheduled delivery for any time of day or night, so work out what you need, when you need it and work backwards from there.
  • Find the right provider. Next, look for the right courier provider. You want someone that delivers from your area to all of your desired destinations, as well as someone with good experience and a stellar reputation. Be sure to check out online reviews first, and always consider providers who can offer you value-add services, like logistics help, warehousing, cross docking and more. You never know when you might need them.
  • Create your own custom routes. Pull together the routes you’ll need, including the addresses for all pick-ups, destinations and stops along the way. Your courier will use this info to create your routes and get your deliveries scheduled.

Setting up a pre-scheduled courier is extremely easy, and it can take an immense weight off your and your team’s shoulders. Want to learn more about what pre-scheduled deliveries can do for your business? Contact the experts at Dependable Express today.
