Many small and medium-sized companies have historically been overburdened with several different courier accounts. Working out which company will get their delivery to its destination for the best price and on time has often been tricky. Should we use DHL? Parcel Force? DPD? UPS? Hermes…? It’s a potentially long list. In the end, many companies just choose the one they used last. Some use several carriers over a month.
This comes with worries though. Is that the best price? Will they get it there on time? Why do they have to pick up so early in the day? Why do we have to speak to so many different people? Why can’t we get through to an actual human being when there’s a problem? The more couriers used, the more paperwork, the more interruptions to the day – that’s if you’re lucky enough or big enough for them to pick up. In many cases, you’ll be taking your deliveries to the courier.
This also means paperwork and invoices from different companies. If you have a query, you’ll likely sit on hold for ages before speaking to someone.
“Where’s that parcel? I have an irate customer chasing me…”
We take that pain away. We let you focus on what made your business a success.
How do we work? We’ll look at a potential new client’s shipping bills for the last month or quarter. Volume, weights, sizes, destinations. This will give us an understanding of their business – of the scale and scope of the service they need. We’ll then look at where and how we can make savings and potentially get parcels delivered more quickly. Then we’ll outline what we can do.
It’s not just the £s savings though. Our service saves our clients significant amounts of time each month in administration time and logistics. Even if that’s just one person at an hour a day it adds up to about twenty hours a month or the equivalent of about 15% of a salary. And that person has had time freed up to focus on other parts of the business.
