Different Types of Delivery Services & How to Choose

What Type of Delivery Service Do I Need?

When someone thinks of shipping or delivery, they often think of the big chains, FedEx, UPS etc. The truth is that here are many different types of delivery companies and services out there, including local companies that will get the job done better and more efficiently.

The only way to get the best service available is to understand the differences between the different types of services that you need so you know what to ask for. As a comprehensive 3rd party logistics company, Xpressman offers complete shipping and courier service for whatever your business requires.

Freight Delivery Services

If you have extra heavy or over-sized deliveries in large quantities, you are looking at a freight delivery. Building supplies, tires, lumber, trees, pallets – these are all things best suited for a freight delivery.  When freight is delivered it is often moved on pallets for convenience. When the truck arrives, the destination will need a pallet jack to handle the arrival.

Specialty Deliveries Services

Specialty deliveries are for odd things like flowers or delivering private legal documents or any kind of hazardous material – things that are important, sensitive or don’t fit in a box.  For this, you want to choose a specialized delivery service that can handle delivering flowers, or print jobs, booklets, or what have you. At Xpressman our delivery services can handle specialized deliveries including antiques and artwork.

Routed & Scheduled Delivery

Routed delivery is ideal for regularly scheduled, repeating deliveries for products like at-home medical supplies or distribution. Xpressman is a preferred logistics company for routed & scheduled delivery in Boston.

What is a Courier Service?

A courier service is usually a private company that focuses on fast, same day delivery for any size parcel or package. While most courier services operate within city limits, Xpressman offers courier services in Boston, Randolph, Norfolk, and beyond.

What Service Should I use to Transport Legal Documents?

Because of the highly sensitive nature of legal documents, a white glove delivery service, also known as specialty delivery service is the best option. These couriers are specifically trained to handle important items. Xpressman offers white glove delivery services that are ideal for sensitive & important documents that you need delivered the same day.

What Delivery Service is Best For Small Businesses?

The ability to outsource your delivery services is ideal for small businesses that might lack the infrastructure to maintain their own delivery fleet. In addition to saving on vehicle costs, your company can focus on more important day to day tasks while the courier service handles your deliveries.
