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.
- 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.
- 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.
