As a business, you are likely to come across situations where you need to get goods or other items moved from A to B. For most lines of work, this is pretty much unavoidable, at least occasionally.
However, the needs of different businesses will vary greatly, hence there is a wide range of options out there for transporting and delivering goods quickly. A cheap man and van service in London might be more than enough for a small company to fulfil their deliveries, while a larger firm may need a larger same day courier service with the capacity to deliver all over the UK or even abroad at a moment’s notice.
These various options include some of the largest courier firms. In the UK, even Royal Mail has now joined the ranks of other privately owned firms like Fedex, DHL, Yodel and other well known brands. These big names may be appropriate whether you’re a small or large firm, but if you’re not sending the kinds of packages which can be safely handled by a postal service, you may need to look at alternatives.
Of course some companies have such high demand for these services that they are able to employ their own in-house delivery staff to offer their next day or same day courier services, including the likes of Amazon as well as smaller domestic retailers like Argos and even supermarkets. However, for many businesses, demand is not stable enough or other factors may act as barriers to hiring dedicated delivery employees.
