How to keep your supply chain moving during your ‘busy season’.

Different seasons of the year affect the demand for different products.  While florists see their best days on holidays, automotive and truck parts deliveries boom in the summer months especially, due to the wear and tear caused by heat and the increased driving in the summer months.

Companies who require same day, local and regional deliveries must ramp up their delivery personnel in their ‘busy season’, and make a capital investment in additional delivery vehicles.

Driver and vehicle outsourcing,  is an option increasingly utilized by distribution managers  to achieve the required result at the lowest possible price.  Outsourcing allows companies the flexibility to increase or decrease their delivery capability with no capital investment whatsoever.

With the increases in vehicle license fees, taxes and insurances, outsourcing deliveries to a professional driver outsourcing company or driver staffing agency  can make a lot of business sense.

What type of insurance does your courier company have?

Before signing a service agreement with a Courier, LTL freight,  3PL or messenger company, it’s important to ask for the  company’s standard ‘ Accord for Certificate of Insurance’.  This certificate shows the specific limits of insurance coverage.  Furthermore, it is standard to also require the insurer to notify you as the customer, of any cancellations, non-renewal or reductions in coverage.

Companies utilizing overnight courier companies, express freight companies,companies that provide dedicated routes or driver staffing to their customers, are advised to require not only a valid copy of the ‘Certificate of Insurance’, updated as mentioned, but also insure the limits are detailed in any Service Agreements provided by the shippers.

This also applies to Driver and Warehouse Staffing companies.

California has some of the strictest requirements for couriers and messengers companies, and the most favorable environment for companies or individuals who seek liability or damages relief for accidents, injuries, etc.

What types of service do courier companies offer?

Local and regional courier companies provide an array of valuable services to the business community.  From a single envelope across town, a pallet across the state or a group of dedicated delivery routes, courier and delivery companies fill the gap between national carriers and self delivery.  Throughout California, HB Express provides quotes on the following services:

  • Scheduled overnight courier service
  • ‘Direct to consumer’ delivery and warehouse distribution
  • Driver staffing
  • LTL (Less than a truckload),  pickup and delivery
  • Medical Couriers

  • Dedicated routes
  • On Call pickup and delivery (same day or overnight)

Courier companies in California provide variety of services

Courier and expedited freight companies in California, provide a valuable array of transportation services.  From outsourcing drivers to providing home delivery of products and goods, these companies provide a vital link in the supply chain.

While many people often associate couriers with hand delivering diplomatic messages, today’s courier companies link shippers with their customers, providing services and amenities that national carriers just do not offer.

Dedicated routes, driver staffing and temporary drivers, ‘direct to consumer’ shipping and repair parts distribution and home pharmacy delivery services are just a few of the specialized services local and regional courier companies provide to their customers.

Outsourcing delivery drivers saves money and headaches

Historically companies  deliver their products and goods to their customers locally and regionally, utilizing their company-owned vehicles and hired drivers.  This often means that in addition to running their ‘core business’, (auto parts sales, pharmacies, flower shops, computer parts sales, office supplies, etc.), they are also running a distribution network.

Along with running a distribution network come the challenges and issues that all delivery companies face.  Hiring drivers, training, supervising an additional workforce, workers compensation and insurance costs.  And these are just in the human resources spectrum.  Owning and operating a fleet of vehicles from two to two hundred brings it’s own challenges, unforeseen costs and liabilities.

Outsourcing delivery drivers and vehicles to driver staffing companies is becoming a more and more popular option as companies today have to watch every budget dollar while still staying ahead of their competition.
