What is Dedicated Delivery?
Dedicated delivery means only your consignment is carried onboard a vehicle at any one time. While many couriers claim to provide dedicated delivery, their vehicles are often carrying multiple items for different clients. This means items can take longer to arrive at their intended destination and can even be delivered at the wrong address.
Urgent and important parcels are often extremely valuable, whether in financial, legal or operational terms. For this reason, it’s important to enlist the services of a professional and fully insured courier. It’s also important to know what other parcels will be carried alongside yours, and how the delivery company mitigates against damage or loss.
Dedicated delivery as standard
Here at Speedel we provide dedicated delivery as standard. This means our vehicles only carry the goods of one particular client. This drastically reduces the chances of items being lost or damaged, decreases transit time, and lessens the chance of parcels being delivered to an incorrect address.
Dedicated delivery benefits
To summarise, dedicated delivery benefits include:
- No risk of parcels being squashed, crumpled or damaged by other items.
- The driver is making only one collection and drop-off, so the risk of delay is greatly reduced.
- Ideal for confidential documents and urgent packages.
- Transit time is reduced.
- With only one drop-off to make, there is no risk of the parcel being delivered incorrectly.
- Professional image of having a dedicated delivery driver, without the investment in vehicles and personnel.
