Since 1836, the great state of Texas has been boldly proclaiming its distaste for mediocrity. And why shouldn’t we? As all Texans know well, everything is bigger (and better) in Texas. So if the Lone Star State doesn’t settle, as a business operating in DFW neither should you!
As you seek transportation and logistics solutions for your business, beware. There’s a whole lot of mediocrity going on out there. If you’re not careful, you’ll get swindled, bamboozled, and cheated out of your right to fabulous service. The difference between the best courier in DFW and a mediocre one isn’t too tough to spot, but it is in the details like these.
Delivery Confirmation vs Real Time Tracking
A basic delivery team offers confirmation. Hey- even your favorite pizza joint gives you notification that your pie has arrived! But a great courier can offer real time tracking and live updates on that status of your items. The best couriers in Texas make technology a business priority.
Package Pushers vs Trained and Certified Delivery Specialists
It doesn’t take much to label yourself a courier. If you have a vehicle, you can have your own delivery business. The difference between a mediocre courier and a delivery specialist is in the training. Certified couriers go through hours of training in areas like HazMat, food safety, OSHA, and HIPAA in order to safely and legally move your sensitive items. In fact, settling for anything less than a trained specialist is sometimes illegal, especially when it comes to healthcare deliveries.
Office Hours vs 24/7 Service
Phone trees, a closed sign, and a prerecorded message saying “Sorry, we’re closed!” These are all signs of a mediocre courier. The best couriers are available when you need them. If your business operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so should your delivery team. Your important items can’t wait for regular business hours. You deserve a top-notch courier with on demand deliveries available any time of day or night.
Operational Vehicles vs Maintained Fleet
Well maintained vehicles are a staple of any great transportation team. This can often be an expensive process, which is why many mediocre couriers skimp on preventative maintenance. But great couriers know that taking the time and resources to invest in vehicles means they’re ready to go at any moment’s notice. Having the right vehicle, including temperature controlled vans and straight trucks, ready and on hand when a specific delivery need arises is priceless.
“Insured” vs Fully Insured by A-Rated Providers
It’s not enough to just “have insurance”. Find out the specifics of your transportation team’s insurance policies. They should be willing to share. A full suite of insurance through A-rated providers is what your courier should carry. It’s the best way to deliver peace of mind to customers. In the case of an unforeseen event, fully insured couriers can responsibly make fast and fair reparations.
Don’t settle for mediocre. You’d never expect less than the best from your own business, so why would you allow it from your third party logistics partner? If you want to run the best business in DFW, you need the best courier in DFW on your side.
