Is it that you want to improve the number of collections and deliveries that you do?
Is it your parcel delivery services that you wish to improve?
Do you want to expand the radius of the area you currently serve?
Do you want to eliminate your dead mileage to lower your operating costs to remain competitive?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes then read on, we have the answer:
It is a great time to be thinking about improving your courier business; the demand for parcel deliveries has increased due to consumers shopping more and more online. Not only are shoppers ordering online more than ever before, they expect quicker delivery times than ever before too. The competition between couriers is high and the need to be top of your game is more important than ever.
You could invest in a larger van or more vehicles to be able to deliver more parcels and packages. That would incur more costs and increase the pressure to have them all running at full capacity.
Or you could join Courier Market for free and outsource your extra deliveries and collections to our trusted network of professional, experienced and licenced couriers and owner van drivers. Therefore, keeping your operating costs down and your profits higher.
To improve your parcel delivery services you could employ specialist drivers and buy or lease specialist courier vehicles and therefore offer a wider range of courier services to your customers. For example, to branch into the food or medical industries you will need a refrigerated van to hold temperature-controlled cargo. Or you could join Courier Market for free and connect with our ever-growing fleet of same-day couriers, self-employed drivers and courier companies that already have these resources with qualified drivers and the correct licences and vehicles. They can deliver these for you when and where you need them simply by booking the courier job on our courier exchange platform and without the extra overheads eating into your profits.
Are you restricted to the distances you can travel with your current courier offering? To expand the radius of the area that you currently collect and deliver you could expand the size of your business and employ extra drivers. This means taking on extra vehicles with extra costs of tax, insurance and servicing on top of extra salary costs. Or you could join Courier Market for free for a more cost-effective solution. You can offer deliveries and collections all across the UK and then sub-contract the job out to our network of experienced and fully qualified couriers that will deliver and collect securely and reliably on your behalf.
Dead mileage and empty back runs are a challenge in the courier industry. Driving an empty van is a waste of fuel that could be used to take on another part or full load. If you found another courier job to fill the empty return journeys your turnover and your profits are instantly increased. Your courier business would improve with no more wasted fuel. It would be better for the environment too! Finding courier work that suits when and where you are going is not so easy. You could join Courier Market for free to find a constant supply of available jobs to match your vehicle capacity, current location and destination.
