Surviving Springtime Daylight Saving

I don’t know about you, but it feels like it takes a long time to recover from the holiday season. This is especially true for Dallas on demand couriers, as the holidays are some of the busiest and most challenging times of the year. Large food distribution orders, last minute gift deliveries, and all that Black Friday merchandise has us barely coming up for air most days. With 24 hour operations on top of that, by the time the new year comes around, we’re smoked.


Then it hits you.


The dreaded beginning of Daylight Saving Time. This year on Sunday, March 10th, at 2 AM, all of us, including our Dallas on demand couriers who know the value of one hour, will “lose” an hour in our day.


Sure, we’ll get it back. In eight months. But, just when we thought we were recovered from the holiday season, for a few weeks, we’ll all feel that lost hour. Not to be dramatic, but, HOW WILL WE SURVIVE?


Good question. Here are a few simple ways to survive the beginning if Daylight Saving Time:

4 Things You Don’t Want To Do With Your DFW Healthcare Deliveries

When it comes to delivery and transportation in DFW, lots of folks will tell you what to do. Hire THIS courier, they say. Add THIS service to your operations. Sure, we could be like everyone else and tell you what to do with your T&L operations. After all, we’ve been in the business for over 35 years. Our leadership has a combined experience of over 150 years in the industry. So we know a thing or two about what you should be doing.


But, as we always do, we’re breaking the mold. Similar to the unique way we run our business, with honesty and integrity at the forefront of all operations, we’re going to do things a little differently. Instead of telling you what to do, we’re going to tell you what NOT to do with your healthcare deliveries.


Before you request your next medical transport, consider the following things to avoid to ensure a successful and safe healthcare delivery:

This Place That We Call The Workplace

Refrigerated deliveries in DFW can be a harrowing task. I mean, who else has to deal with both freezing temperatures and seventy-five degree sunny skies in the same week? It makes it difficult for distributors to keep their goods at controlled temperatures while they’re moved throughout DFW or even throughout the state of Texas.


This is exactly why companies call on a professional transportation team like Dallas Courier to handle their refrigerated deliveries in DFW. We keep your frozen, refrigerated, and ambient items cool. Literally.


We also keep it cool metaphorically. Here at Dallas Courier, we pride ourselves on our people. We’re committed to hiring the best of the best, and then training them on how to serve with excellence and care, no matter what the transportation task.


What’s it like for our people? To find out, let’s take a look at our place.

Breaking into DFW With the Help of a 3PL Partner

Maybe you haven’t heard the news. Dallas is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, and one of the best for businesses.


Lower than average unemployment rates. No state income tax. Geographically centralized location. Affordable real estate. The list goes on for reasons why folks make the move to the Big D.


Those of us who are already here have known it all along. Like our Dallas Courier team, for example, that has been operating in the DFW Metroplex for over 30 years. There’s so much we love about our city, including those businesses and individuals we serve, we’re proud to call DFW our home.


If you’re not on the Dallas bandwagon yet, what are you waiting for?


Maybe the answer is the right third party logistics partner. In that case, look no further than Dallas Courier.

In the Event of a Delivery Emergency, Do THIS

Most emergencies are best handled by medical and law enforcement professionals. But what about when you have a delivery emergency? Before you scoff, the term "emergency" as applied to a transportation issue, consider that some deliveries could mean the difference between life and death! So, yeah, your delivery emergency is important. And here's how to handle it:

Don’t be Fooled by These Courier Slights of Hand

Have you ever seen a magician on TV or in person? It’s great, isn’t it! The show is filled with “oohhs!” and “ahhhs!” as you watch someone make something disappear, or make you believe something is there that really isn’t.


Unfortunately, if those events were to occur with, say your DFW delivery courier, they wouldn’t be met with the same wonder and excitement. Because when your courier does a slight of hand trick or makes something disappear, like your money or an entire cargo load of frozen seafood, it isn’t a fun experience.


As you make the tough choice of finding just the right courier to meet your transportation and logistics needs in DFW, don’t be fooled by these often-used tricks of the trade. Because when it comes to those other transportation providers, everything isn’t always as it seems:

Things You Can Say Goodbye To When You Hire a DFW Courier

Saying goodbye is never easy. Unless, of course, it’s to something you really could do without. Like, for example, the 2018-2019 NFL season. Or the leftovers that were never really that good in the first place. Or the houseguest who said they were coming by for a visit, but were still going strong a week later.


So, I guess what our DFW couriers are saying is that sometimes, saying goodbye is awesome. Especially when it’s a goodbye to the crummy things that come along with making your own deliveries or hiring the wrong delivery courier.


Because when you hire the right DFW courier, you can say goodbye to these details:

3 Top Safety Facts You Need to Know About Dallas Food Distribution

Dallas food distribution isn’t as simple as transporting many other types of goods. Medical products are probably the only cargo that’s trickier, and they face similar challenges.

What Do President’s Day and DFW Warehousing Services Have in Common?

Here at Dallas Courier, we get compared to a lot of things.
