What Type of Delivery Service Do I Need?
When someone thinks of shipping or delivery, they often think of the big chains, FedEx, UPS etc. The truth is that here are many different types of delivery companies and services out there, including local companies that will get the job done better and more efficiently.
The only way to get the best service available is to understand the differences between the different types of services that you need so you know what to ask for. As a comprehensive 3rd party logistics company, Xpressman offers complete shipping and courier service for whatever your business requires.
If you have extra heavy or over-sized deliveries in large quantities, you are looking at a freight delivery. Building supplies, tires, lumber, trees, pallets – these are all things best suited for a freight delivery. When freight is delivered it is often moved on pallets for convenience. When the truck arrives, the destination will need a pallet jack to handle the arrival.
Specialty deliveries are for odd things like flowers, or delivering private legal documents or any kind of hazardous material – things that are important, sensitive, or don’t fit in a box . For this you want to choose a specialized delivery service that can handle delivering flowers, or print jobs, booklets, or what have you. At Xpressman our delivery services can handle specialized deliveries including antiques and artwork.
Routed & Scheduled Delivery
Routed delivery is ideal for regularly scheduled, repeating deliveries for products like at-home medical supplies or distribution. Xpressman is a preferred logistics company for routed & scheduled delivery in Boston.
