Safe Delivery Drivers in North Texas Want to End the Streak

Texas is known for many awesome things. A great steak. America’s favorite (?) football team. Wide open plains. Stellar sunsets.

 

But one claim to fame that’s no so great? Texas leads the nation in traffic related deaths. That’s a tough pill to swallow.

 

To put it into perspective, consider this: beginning on November 7, 2000, every single day, a person dies on Texas roads. This means 67,000 people have perished. On average, about 10 people die each day on North Texas roads. It’s not just happening on the highways and interstates, either. Residential streets with speed limits of 30 mph are where most kids are injured or killed.

 

I think we all agree that this has to stop. But the question is how? The state of Texas has taken steps in the last year to bring traffic related deaths down to zero by the year 2025. Here at Dallas Courier, we also are doing our part as safe delivery drivers in North Texas. Find out how, together, we’re changing the way Texans drive.

What Does Dallas Courier Represent?

What do you stand for? Like it or not, everyone stands for something. What you represent is the message you’re putting out to the world. Your values, your opinions, your beliefs- these are all pieces of the puzzle that is you or your business.

 

If you’re new to the Dallas Courier family, you might be wondering what we’re all about. What does this T&L provider in North Texas stand for? Good thing for you, we’re pretty forthright. If you want to know what Dallas Courier represents, just take a look:

Resolve to Stay Strong This Valentine's Day

Remember those New Year's resolutions you made way back when…in… January. Yes, January seemed like it lasted an entire year, but 2020 is still new, and February is upon us.

 

As our Valentine’s Day couriers understand it, February presents quite a dilemma for New Year's Resolutions. It’s been about six weeks- which is just about the time folks tend to leave behind all those well-meaning resolutions for the new year. Not to mention, there’s a perfect reason to blow those newfound resolutions off- Valentine’s Day.

If You Have Dry Cargo, We Have a Straight Truck Delivery for That

Have you taken in an aerial view of Downtown Dallas lately? Or even North Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, or any of the cities surrounding the Metroplex? Just for kicks, Google it. We’ll wait.

 

Crazy, huh? With so many highways, freeways, and tollways, it’s no wonder that the North Texas region is a hotbed for trucking. Trucks are delivering items to and from cities around the Metroplex, as well as to and from locations outside of the Metroplex. Many of them make daily or weekly routes on I-35 and I-45 to and from Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, hitting the major metropolitan areas seven days a week.

 

While a straight truck delivery can include anything from food to pharmaceuticals, we’re going to focus today’s blog on dry cargo. How does a straight truck delivery accommodate your dry cargo? Let’s find out in FOUR questions.

What Affects the Timing of a DFW Same Day Delivery?

One of the best parts about being a local courier in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex is that we get to deliver same day items, no matter what day of the week. Some of the big name logistics companies can offer 4 hour delivery options, but they come with a slew of stipulations. “Must be within 45 miles.” “Must be ready for pickup by 4PM.” “No delivery on Sunday.”

 

What about those deliveries that don’t fit in this DFW same day delivery box created by the big box transportation providers? What happens when you have an urgent delivery need on a holiday or after hours?

When Transportation Isn’t Always a Good Thing

Hundreds of millions. That quantity could mean something awesome. Like, for example, if you had hundreds of millions of dollars in your bank account. (Hey, we can dream.) Or, when you consider the hundreds of millions of stars in the sky. A quantity that large is pretty spectacular, right?

 

Unless, of course, you’re talking about germs. Yuck. Did you know there’s one thing lurking in your house right this very moment that transports hundreds of millions of germs around every time you use it? It’s true.

 

Transportation for healthcare items in Dallas is a good thing. Transportation for hundreds of millions of nasty germs? Not a good thing. Since we’re in the throes of cold and flu season, now is the time to educate yourself on the germiest places in your home, and the ways you can banish the multitude of germs being transported around your living space each day. Take notes! Just wash your hands, first.

The Right Vehicle Makes All the Difference for Your Deliveries in DFW

Have you ever seen a four year old boy in front of the toy car aisle in a store? If you haven’t had the pleasure 🙄, I’ll set the scene for you. There are no less than 30 different types of die cast vehicles to sort through. There is a small child pulling every one of them off the shelf for closer inspection. Somewhere close by is a parent or guardian who is looking at their watch and repeatedly saying, “ok, you have one more minute to make a choice!” But with monster trucks and race cars, wheel size and pinstripes, paint color and ground clearance to take into consideration, that kid could be there all day.

 

The moral of this story: Even a four year old knows that the right vehicle makes all the difference.

 

Deliveries in DFW vary by location, distance, and item out for delivery. There could be one envelope on a rush order across town or 15 pallets on their way to Florida. Add onto that special instructions and sensitive handling, and you have yourself an exponential number of possible delivery scenarios. With so many different plans, it makes sense that there is no one-size-fits-all vehicle to accommodate.

 

Knowing the right vehicle for your deliveries in DFW makes all the difference when you’re aiming for success. But what if you don’t know the right vehicle? You know what you need transported, but you just don’t know how to get it there.

Put a Little Logic in Your Dallas Area Logistics

Work smarter, not harder. The origin of that phrase is unclear, but one thing IS for sure, putting it into practice sure is satisfying. No matter what industry you serve in the Metroplex, chances are you could use a little less hard work and a little more success.

These Super Bowl Winners and Losers Are in Your Hands

In the world of food distribution and delivery in Fort Worth and Dallas, there are clear winners and losers.
