Advantages Of Using Courier Services In Singapore

Whether you are working for a business that requires deliveries or you need to get item(s) delivered rather often, there are many advantages that a courier company can offer which you would be hard pressed to find if you hired your own deliveryman. As many people say, the buzz word of 2016 and beyond is outsourcing. Few companies and people do everything themselves already and this is the case even for the self-employed. The new world economy encourages ‘sharing’ and ‘sharing’ in the corporate world is also otherwise known as outsourcing.

Let us take 2 examples, the first would be that of a business and the second would be that of a self-employed person.

  1. Let us imagine for a moment that you’re the manager at a company and you need to manage deliveries. In such a case, you could either hire a deliveryman or you could engage the courier services of local courier companies. Most courier service prices range from $5 to $20. If you were to engage your own in house deliveryman, you would need to pay him or her approximately $4000 (including CPF and vehicle leasing). This means that you would need a bare minimum of over 200 deliveries a month to make it reasonable to engage your own in house deliveryman. Do you see the immense cost savings that a local courier service company in Singapore can provide you now? You can then invest these cost savings into something profitable instead of burning it all on an unnecessary in house deliveryman.
  2. Now, let us imagine that you are a local self-employed business owner and you need to run errands from time to time or perhaps deliver documents or goods to people. You would either need to take the public transport and waste lots of precious time away (which you should be putting to use to grow your business instead of doing mindless chores like running errands) or you would need to take the cab or drive and waste your precious profits away. Instead, by simply engaging local courier services within Singapore, you get rid of these headaches and save both time and money. Meanwhile, you would then be able to focus on your business as a result of having outsourced your delivery needs.

Picking A Courier Service In Singapore

If you are an E-commerce business owner or simply an admin manager who  require courier services from time to time, here is some advice on picking the right courier service for yourself.

Find out your own delivery requirements. There are some people who require hundreds or perhaps even thousands of deliveries a month, and therefore, there are many things that such a person / customer would require or demand from a courier company. Accordingly, such a person would need to consider many different things for the courier service that they want. For instance, if you require regular and constant deliveries every month, then you would ideally need waiver for your outskirt charges e.t.c. or these charges would add up to be a seriously substantial sum of money and expenses for you.

Next of all, after knowing what quantity of deliveries you require, you would need to know what type of item(s) you would need to be delivered. If you need parcels to be delivered, they would generally cost more than that of document deliveries. This is because only vans or cars are able to deliver such parcels while documents can be delivered by both motorcycle riders as well as van couriers.

Third of all, you need to ask yourself if you only require general courier services in Singapore or you need a dedicated courier from a particular courier company in Singapore. There are people who want a dedicated courier (hired from a courier company in Singapore and not hired in-house). However, this is not a common choice and you need to ask yourself if you really require such levels of courier services. This is because a dedicated courier, though much more controllable, costs a lot more than normal levels of courier services.

The above provides you with key advice in finding the right courier company in Singapore to partner with.
