Dallas Courier, 3PL Partner in DFW

October is a time for some pretty spooky happenings. From haunted houses to our favorite horror flicks, terror is all around us…including our transportation and logistics processes.


Sometimes a delivery can turn into a real nightmare. In fact, with the wrong 3PL partner in DFW, or no 3PL partner at all, your transportation and logistics processes can be downright terrifying! Check out these scary delivery situations:


Blackout communication: Every scary movie has a scene where the characters find themselves in the middle of nowhere, without a way to communicate. Cell phones run out of battery; signal is lost; a post-apocalyptic storm has cut down all power lines; no way to Instagram!? This type of communication cut off is terrifying, especially when your delivery involves an ultra-sensitive item like an organ for donation or a timely document like court papers. The wrong 3PL partner can leave you in the dark, but the right one sheds light on your delivery every step of the way. Here at Dallas Courier, we offer GPS tracking from start to finish.


Abandoned warehouses: Spooky, isn’t it? Sounds like something out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Of course, when it comes to your logistics processes, the warehouse isn’t exactly abandoned; just left unsupervised without proper security. Your items deserve a centrally located warehouse that offers 24/7 access for clients and zero access for criminals. That’s the kind of warehouse Dallas Courier maintains. We take protecting your stuff seriously.


Middle of the night phone calls: Like Scream, those middle of the night phone calls are often carrying terrible news. But what if the tables were turned? What if you had terrible transportation news, and needed a courier’s assistance in the middle of the night? It would be terrifying to consider that your call would go unanswered. It wouldn’t, of course, if you were calling Dallas Courier. Our phones are manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your middle of the night phone calls will always be answered by a friendly, helpful Dallas Courier team member.


Getting the chills (or not getting them): Goosebumps can mean something sinister is about, but when it comes to your temperature controlled deliveries, goosebumps might be exactly what you’re missing. Cool and refrigerated goods need strict temperature control- something that your courier can maintain on your behalf. A well-equipped courier can keep dual and tri temperature control in vans or straight trucks so your items can ride in the perfect atmosphere. Without temperature control, the Texas heat could even affect your shelf stable items. In North Texas, maintaining the proper temperature during transit is essential to a successful delivery.


Leave the spooks and startles for the haunted house, and definitely don’t go at your deliveries alone. For secure, safe, and friendly transportation services, let Dallas Courier treat you to a 98% on time rate and stellar customer service as your 3PL partner.


Your transportation processes don’t have to look like a scene from “Thriller”. When you have Dallas Courier on your side, T&L is anything but scary. Unless, of course, you count “scary easy”.
