How to select a courier company part 2

Price.  Send me your rates.  Yes, price is king when companies or organizations choose a courier, messenger or express freight company to deliver their shipments.

That is probably why these same companies, organizations and especially government agencies have to put their work out to bid on a regular basis instead of having a long term relationship with a reliable carrier.

Here are two other factors and questions that need to be addressed,  that are as important as price:

Operational Soundness: “Show me exactly how you would perform my service”.   Tour courier warehouses, look at similar shipments being processed and delivered, test the service and look hard at the results.

Get references.

If you can get a solid price, personally inspect operations and test the service and then get references, you have a better chance of receiving high service levels and maintaining a successful relationship with your courier company and your customers.
