What’s the difference between a courier and a messenger?

As it relates to logistics industry, typically messenger companies provide on-demand, same day delivery services.

Courier companies include a larger swath of transportation companies that sometimes includes messengers, but more likely refer to regional delivery companies providing customized same-day or next-day service either on-demand or on a scheduled basis.

What is difference between a courier and a messenger?

Delivery companies go by different names or categories.  Couriers, messengers, express freight or expedited freight are some of the other categories delivery companies use to describe their operations.  While express and expedited freight, like LTL (less than a truckload) can also apply to trucking companies, regional delivery companies often offer these services also.

Messenger usually applies to companies that offer car or bicycle drivers who pick up and deliver on a same-day basis, often within a designated time allowance (ie: 4 hours service, 2 hour service, etc.).

While the term courier is also used for messengers, courier companies most likely also provide overnight service in addition to same day, and also covers jobs like medical couriers, pharmacy delivery couriers, auto parts couriers, bank couriers, etc.

Express freight generally means LTL (less than a truckload) freight that is too time sensitive to rely on trucking companies.  Pallets or multiple box or bag shipments that require same day pickup and delivery fall into this category.

What types of services do Courier companies offer?

On demand and scheduled courier, or delivery companies offer different types of distribution services.

While many people think of a courier as a person carrying an important envelope under their arm, either biking or driving to deliver it, actually most courier and delivery companies offer far more diversified services.

Here a some of the delivery solutions you can find from you local and regional courier companies:

1. On Demand Messenger: A package needs to picked up in 4 hours or less and delivered the same business day.

2. On Demand Express Freight:  A shipment requiring a truck needs to be picked up and delivered the same business day.

3. Scheduled Courier Services: A company or organization requires multiple stops to be picked up and delivered on a regularly scheduled basis.

4. Driver staffing: A company or organization outsources their drivers and vehicles to a courier company.

5. Overnight courier service: Picking up shipments and delivering the following day, or following business day.

6. 3PLl or Third Party Logistics: Refers to an array of services that include logistics services for part, or all of their supply chain management functions.

7. Warehousing and Distribution: Courier companies allow customers to store their products at the courier’s warehouse and distributed on either an on-demand or scheduled basis.

There are variation of these services and other services not listed here, but these are the primary services offered by courier companies.

Questions to ask when getting a quote for delivery services

When companies need to find  a delivery or courier company, either for a one time delivery or an ongoing partnership, the first question and often the deciding factor is cost or delivery rates.

Since rate or cost is such an important factor in deciding whether to use a delivery or courier company, it is critically important to get all charges included or explained in the quote.

For instance, fuel surcharges.  Many companies, especially transportation companies, institute fuel surcharges to account for the fluctuating price of fuel.

Typically, a delivery company will base their rates on a certain set price of fuel, (say $2.50 per gallon of unleaded in your area).  As fuel goes above the base price, they will calculate a fuel surcharge on all delivery rates.  You will find a wide range of calculation methods and fuel surcharge rates, from none at all up to 20%, it just depends on their policies and whether their basic rates cover all fuel surcharges or not.

There are many other ancillary charges delivery companies charge, but fuel surcharge is usually the most expensive of these type of charges and if not explained and then considered carefully, can cause you to make bad choices and spend more money than you planned for you delivery service requirements.

This applies to courier companies, express freight companies, delivery companies and same day messenger services to name a few.

HB Express is a California based transportation company that works with couriers and delivery companies throughout California and western Nevada to insure our customers get the best rates and most reliable service and a convenient one stop option for getting quotes on any type of delivery, courier, express freight or messenger services.

 

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.
