Here is what to know about the various types of courier services

Press Release: Dubai, February 9, 2019

If you are new to sending a package to a domestic or international destination, you may be inclined to wonder about the different types of services that courier services offer in terms of methods, timeframes etc. Knowing a few fundamental things about courier services will help you narrow down the choices when it comes to your specific delivery requirements.

Standard services

This is the most basic of services that a courier company offers. It usually involves collection of your package. The courier company then sorts the packages and dispatches them to a depot that falls in the vicinity of the delivery location or is nearest to it. The timeframe for standard deliveries is usually a few days and accordingly, this option is also predictably the most affordable.

Overnight services

This option essentially mimics the standard service with a few frills. This sort of delivery takes place the next day after it has been handed over. You can choose this option for packages that are time-sensitive or need to reach someone within a specific time period.

Express services

As the name clearly indicates, such deliveries happen on the same day. Though this service can be an expensive proposition, it can be availed when you need to send a package urgently. Considering that your package is delivered the same day, the costs involved need not be viewed through a negative prism. In case you want to avoid delays, this option would be the one to go for.

International services

If you wish to send a package to an international destination, modern methods of delivery can make it a fairly simple process. Depending on where you want to send the package, you can choose a courier service that operates or has suitable tie-ups in the destination country. Also ensuring that the company you choose is reputed will have a positive impact on factors like customs and port clearance.
