Finding A Courier Services Provider In Singapore

If you have not worked with a courier company in Singapore before and are not sure what to do to find a good one or engage their services, then here are some advice for you.

– Chances are if you have many important documents to be delivered e.g. to the bank or another company frequently, then it’s important to work with a company that provides successful delivery notification to your business. This is important because you want accountability especially when it comes to crucial and very important documents to your business (e.g. your worker’s passports or some legal documents). You don’t want to have to manually track with the courier company, any good Singapore courier should notify you upon successful receipt by the intended recipient. This leaves you free to do the important things and not having to worry about the delivery status and constantly checking.

– You want a company which is responsive and speedy in their customer service support. You’re dealing with mostly important documents when it comes to engaging courier services. Some companies reply forever after they’ve gotten your business. Make sure to engage and work with courier companies which are always responsive throughout the working day. This is important if you have a high volume of highly important documents being couriered islandwide.

– There should always be a clear breakdown of the prices that you need to pay for the courier services you need. Some companies are not transparent, while others are. Look for the courier companies which properly account for the prices they charge you. This is because there are couriers which quote randomly according to their wishes and not according to a fixed method, and this can usually result in lots of hidden charges being pushed towards you. Make sure to work with an honest courier company.

In conclusion, follow the above steps and advice, and you’ll do just fine.

Singapore Courier Services – What you Must Know

As a courier, there would be lots of travelling to be done throughout the entire island, or at least certain regions of Singapore throughout the day to fulfill the deliveries required. Naturally, the longer the distance between the pick up point and delivery point, the greater the pricing it would usually be because of the higher petrol costs incurred. Now, some ridiculous people like to argue that it should be the same rate even though they’re just delivering one item.

However, I want you to think about this, if you had to walk 10 meters to somebody, versus walking 100km to somebody, which one would be far more tiring? Obviously, you would need to spend MORE time and MORE effort on the longer distance one. Another example. If you were to work for more hours at your job and had to do much more work than your colleague, you would obviously ask for a raise right? That’s why courier services also cost more the further the distance is between the pick up point and delivery point! This is a fair world, just that sadly few people can accept it. Look at the facts, Singapore is far from being a free country. With things such as high road taxes, high COE prices as well as ridiculous amounts of ERP gantries, the costs of delivering items for customers in Singapore is skyrocketing. For them to maintain prices relatively steady across many regions and years in Singapore is already no mean feat!

In addition, many great companies in Singapore like www.regent.com.sg and www.pcamasters.com work constantly and hard to develop better logistics solutions for their customers, that’s priced at a sustainable yet attractive prices and offering very prompt customer service support, esp PCA Masters, and with timely deliveries too. I have to say that value for money? PCA Masters and perhaps Regent got to be among the very best in Singapore
