What services do courier companies provide these days?

Before the technology and internet revolution, courier companies transported mainly inter-office or branch to branch communications (for banks and other companies with more than one location or office), check deposit pickups and cancelled check runs to the federal reserve along with services they still provide today like small package delivery.  Everyone thought couriers would disappear with the proliferation and use of the internet to send and receive company communications and the electronic processing of most financial dealings.

However, the courier industry survived mainly by expanding their small package operations and also because the need by companies to transport inter-office documents and other items to their branches and offices has never really gone away and now is experiencing a resurgence.

Additionally, the healthcare industry and it’s need for couriers has vastly expanded in the last twenty years.  Courier companies are a vital line in the logistics supply chain for medical couriers, lab couriers, pharmacy couriers and other healthcare related logistics services.

Should you hire a courier that uses independent contractors?

Unfortunately, companies today looking to save money, are taking advantage of couriers for their distribution needs, who use independent contractors (IC’s).

Use of independent contractors by courier companies is a no-brainer for companies who are looking to make a quick buck at the expense of the drivers.  No workers compensation, no unemployment insurance and you can run the drivers into overtime with no extra money being paid.

California EDD, the US Department of Labor and the IRS might have a different take on this issue.

If you and your company needs transport services and want to avoid the pitfalls that Uber, Amazon and many courier companies who misuse IC’s are having, contact HB Express and I can provide you with a no-obligation, competitive quote based on your delivery specifications.
