What Defines A Reliable Courier Company?

With so many metrics and criteria to look at when picking and working with a suitable courier company in Singapore, how do you know what defines a reliable and good courier firm?

Here are some key pointers you should take note when appointing a courier company as your company’s service provider.

1. Accountability.
One big reason why executives want courier service is because they need accountability. The item cannot just be lost and be accounted for. They would also ideally need to know what time and date it was delivered on. For such a company, turn to Network Courier. They have a big team of admin support staff who will be able to assist you in the event of a loss.

2. Network capabilities.
Not every courier company is able to accept jobs till late – except for PCA Masters Pte Ltd. If you need a job to be ordered and done at around 4pm to 5pm daily, when every other courier firm has closed shop, PCA Masters is still around and able to accept jobs for everyone else still!

3. Punctuality.
When you deliver something, it’s probably time sensitive, otherwise you would not have spent the money on courier service. It’s incredibly frustrating when you spend money for a courier to be late. This is usually the case when you work with only 1 contractor as your ‘courier provider’ and end up with sub par performance. There are also a lot of tiny contractor companies which are terrible in performance. Never use these companies you’ve never heard before in real life, cannot find online and don’t even have a website or online presence!!!

4. Item conditions.
I hope you have not met such a case, but I have colleagues who have couriered parcels (gifts actually) only for one side of the box to be boxed in as a result of the courier’s carelessness. Although this is a small thing, do you know how bad that looks to the recipient? Maybe I’m over-reacting, but this is definitely unacceptable. I do not pay people to destroy my things or not treat my things with absolutely no respect!

Maybe the above criteria are stringent to you, or maybe they’re too relaxed. In any situation though, in my opinion, the above are still the main criteria you’ve got to be looking out for when picking a courier firm to work with in the long term and partner with for your deliveries in Singapore. Hope that helps.

Delivering Sage Comics To Customers In Singapore

I’m a big fan of Sage comics. In fact, I love everything to do with the Marvel Universe. But in this case, let us just talk about Sage (also known as Tessa).

I have been a big fan and buying any Marvel comics which have Sage in it. I think her prowess and abilities are simply so powerful. Now, I sell Sage comics also. Because not everyone knows which comic books have Sage in it.

Distributing the comics in Singapore proved to be a challenge in the beginning. This is because the community who loves Sage is not big, the volume that I sell is not high. This means that I’m unable to hire my own driver, not am I able to benefit from the low prices which delivery companies offer typical E-commerce companies.

Therefore, I turned to courier companies in Singapore. What I realized was that they offered a great service for my needs. I need to know that my customers have received their item, with some kind of photo proof so they don’t bite me in the leg by saying I didn’t send it. It would be disastrous if the postal services lost it. They’re never accountable for anything anyway. Why take that risk. I’ll just courier it.

However, I have to say that not all companies in Singapore are the same. There are very well-established and reputable companies in Singapore like PCA Masters http://www.pcamasters.com/, Network Courier, while there are tiny ones as well.

I would usually work with an established one as I would be assured of their quality because many other large companies use them as well.

As I need photo proof for all my courier services, I used PCA Masters. They provided them as a complimentary service, and whenever the delivery is successful, they update me. Life’s is good when you know your item is delivered without needing to consistently check the status with the courier company.
