Losing money on your supply chain? Call HB Express

There is a lot of news these days about large companies like Amazon, Wal Mart and others, trying to one-up each other by delivering their products faster and cheaper.  I’ve yet to read one article that any of them are having any success with this.  While these large companies can afford to lose thousands or millions or dollars getting their products shipped, smarter large companies and most medium and small companies cannot afford this expensive, money-losing business model.

It always amazes me that companies spend millions on corporate salaries, advertising, fancy buildings and public relations, but when it comes down to it, some delivery person at the bottom of the corporate ladder is making very little money, probably being forced to work as an independent contractor using their family car,  and is responsible for the most important part of the business transactions, actually getting the shipments to the customer.

There are regional courier and delivery companies that operate excellent and tested delivery networks.  These companies are in it for the long term and everyone’s success is dependent on operating efficiently and profitably.  Instead of being run by corporate know-it-alls, they are run by experienced transportation people who dedicate themselves and their careers to providing transportation of time-sensitive shipments.

HB Express Transportation is a Third Party Logistics, California based company that works with the most trusted and efficient courier and delivery companies.  We are authorized to provide their potential customers with the most competitive and honest bid or proposal for transportation of time sensitive shipments throughout California and western Nevada.

The HB Express network provides package and pallet delivery of time sensitive shipments for the below listed categories:

Courier Service Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Express Freight

Same Day Messenger Service California

Delivery company prepares for snow in California

Delivery companies that provide transport of time sensitive shipments in California, have it pretty easy compared to their counterparts in other parts of the U.S.

Our challenges are usually related to traffic, traffic bottlenecks caused by bridges or toll booths and the distance between pick up and delivery destination (California is a big state!).

It’s not unusual for us to get no rain after the month of May and before October, or even November.  But when it does rain, it also brings another challenge, which is snow.

The most likely areas of California to have snow related road closures or delays are the Sierra Mountains between Nevada and California and the Grapevine (I-5 north of LA and south of Bakersfield), I-5 north of Redding to the Oregon state border and in Southern California, the road and highways in the San Bernardino mountains.

Ask your transportation provider what there plans are this winter.  If they don’t have one, you should consider checking around for a more prepared company to transport your time sensitive shipments.

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.

HB Express Transportation is a 3PL, Third Party Logistics, California based  company that can provide courier, messenger or express freight quotes for all of the above listed services in California and western Nevada.  You can reach us at (800) 690-6410 or by email at sparvin@hbexpressit.com.

CA Logistics Companies offer unique shipping solutions

Regional Delivery, Courier and Logistics companies like HB Express provide unique services not offered by the giant nationwide and international shipping companies like UPS, Fedex and of course, USPS.

When the national and international shippers do provide custom regional shipping services, they are usually outsourcing it to smaller, regional couriers or shippers.

Pallet pickup and delivery, resorting, warehouse distribution, driver staffing and same day delivery service are examples of the types of service that are best served by regional couriers and delivery companies.

For TSA couriers, medical couriers, phamacy courier service and regional auto parts deliveries, regional courier companies are also the most efficient and cost effective.
