Some things to consider … depends what areas are you servicing? Are you only doing metro areas? For out of city and country areas TNT doesn’t deliver in our area regularly – only twice a week and sometimes uses subcontractors. Whereas Couriers Please picks up and delivers twice a day in our area as they exchange parcels at a central depot twice a day and are much more cost effective, thereby delivering either same day or the following morning. Australia Post also does similar. Couriers Please are still the best rates I know. They sell in packs of coupons. Think about the service areas and logistics of how to deliver on time which is what customers really need. If you are delivering out of city areas there will be extra petrol and time costs to consider and can the delivery times and depot exchanges still work effectively?
