The difference between a courier and a messenger service?

In the shipping and distribution world, the terms courier and messenger can be confusing.

So what is a courier service, what is a messenger service and what is the difference?

Aside from the national/international carriers, there are the three major categories of  expedited, ground based,  domestic shipping in the business world , messenger, courier and express freight services.

Messenger Companies specialize in same day pick up and delivery service.  They have a dispatch office that receives the service requests and that office then dispatches a messenger, either from the dispatch office or from a a designated staging location to the customer.  Messengers offer three to four levels of service which generally fall in to the categories of ‘Immediate’, ‘Two Hour’, ‘Four Hour’ or ‘Six Hour’ services.

Couriers specialize in next day or overnight delivery.  Most courier also provide scheduled same day service.  While most messenger service is ‘on-call’ or ‘on demand’, couriers traditionally provide scheduled service.  For instance, pickup and delivery between a companies branches or stores, bank runs, residential or business-to-business delivery of goods and products.

Express freight shipping service is performed by a variety of types of shipping companies, from trucking companies to freight forwarders, courier companies and ltl (less than a truckload), shipping providers.  Express Freight usually denotes a larger shipment than a typical courier or messenger shipment.  Express freight can range from a box to a group of pallets and everything in-between.

For expedited delivery service, courier service and express freight services, throughout California and the western states, HB Express provide timely and confidential shipping quotes.  With offices in the San Francisco Oakland Bay Area, Sacramento, San Diego.

Looking to save money on your company’s shipping costs?

While the large national carriers (Fedex, UPS, USPS) suit some shippers needs fine, companies in states hard hit by the economic downturn have to look at other alternatives to drive costs out of their supply chain.

Local, regional and statewide courier and distribution companies (including express freight and expedited delivery services) are often a far better value and far more cost effective than the big 3 national shippers.  Private delivery companies can also customize service more readily for customers who require late pickup times, regularly scheduled same day service or personalized home delivery of their products or goods.

In California and the western states, HB Express sales professionals can provide courier and delivery quotes from the most trusted and experienced delivery companies.  We have worked with the most reliable carriers for over 20 years and earned their trust to represent them in the marketplace.   HB Express also pools the resources and capabilities of the best carriers and private shippers in your required service area to delivery the lowest rates available.

Is scheduled overnight courier service right for you?

One of the valuable services courier companies  provide their customers , is scheduled overnight courier service between company locations, branches, warehouses and to and from their corporate or main office.  Low rates, very late  pickup times with very early delivery times are characteristics of scheduled overnight courier service.

To increase efficiency, couriers will provide  lock boxes to their customers or acquire keyed access at the company’s pickup and/or designated pickup/delivery area.

The service works like this.  An ‘on route’ courier will pick up at a company’s corporate office, work going to each of a company’s branch locations, in California for instance.  If a company has say, six locations throughout the state, a typical main office outgoing shipment might consist of one courier pouch and a box or two going to each of the six company branches or stores, nightly, five days per week.

The work then goes back to the courier’s regional or local warehouse for sorting and routing.

Shipment from a main office, destined for branches or stores  in the same regional area of the state as the main office, can be ‘night exchanged’ by the courier company.  That means a courier will arrive at night, and utilizing a lock box or keyed access, deliver a shipment and pickup the outgoing shipment.  This allows the courier company to perform both the pickup and delivery in the same stop, hence the lower monthly rates.

All work picked up at company’s branches or stores is then returned to the main office the following business morning.

Rates for this type of service can be as low as $85 per month per location for night exchanges; and $150 per month for a main office pickup and delivery.  A company can receive overnight service between a main office and six stores or branches for anywhere from $660 to 860 per month, plus any current fuel surcharges (should not be more than 10% at this time).

A main office and six branches, shipping 5 days per week to and from the main office, will ship 258 shipments per month.  The equates to between $2.80  and $4.00 per shipment.  Considering each shipment can weigh up to 20 lbs. with no additional charges, this is one of the best kept secrets of the courier world.
