    Hi there, what are a list of businesses/industries that involve needing delivery in their daily operations?

    I know florists do deliveries for example. Retails do stock delivery.

    Any examples?

    Thanks!

    Ok,

    That’s pretty broad, and my answer may be as well so I apologise in advance although based on your query I think ANY business that deals in real products could fit into this basket. What do you think? Or is your query more specific and I have missed something?

    Cheers
    Jason

    HarryLuke (if that’s your real name),

    Sounds like you’re looking for alternate revenue streams for your logistics business… Am I close?

    If so, to narrow the focus of the audience (and the opportunity for you to get the advice you want), can you advise:
    – The type of transport within your current fleet?
    – The number of vehicles within your current fleet?
    – Do you have capital to invest in altering either of the above?

    Regards,

    Alan

    Alan, HarryLuke does have a name if you see the post properly. Jason is a regular in the forum. Your reply post is a bit confusing as it is not answering the OP’s question or discussing anything about previous 2 posts. Were you trying to answer this thread or another???

    Coming back to the original topic, Jason is right almost all products that are sold online (with exception to virtual products) needs to be delivered.

    If you can give a bit more background to your question then probably you may receive better answers.

    the list is endless, I suspect there is most likely more that need delivery than not.

    Pizza, even maccas now deliver. Taking it to extremes, your water company delivers.

    We need some more information at where you are heading with the question

    Hey Alan

    Hope you have been well mate, think you may have quoted me although where meant to quote GSanders12 :confused: (used confused icon for fun)..

    Taking the assumption that its not me and the OP you are questioning, i think i recall seeing OP mention was looking to introduce a local same day delivery service in his/her area and this may be the driving force behind the question they have asked… Again, i go back to my original comment that almost any business with REAL/TANGIBLE products would be in this bundle.. If i am incorrect or there is something more specific, such as perishables or must have same day service etc, would be handy to know..

    or

    If the reply was in fact intended for moi, my name is Jason and i tend to sign it off as merrily and freely as i provide advice or comments or input on this splendid open forum for all to benefit from. Be it taken with a grain of slat, or gratitude. My post was merely trying to point out that the OP’s question was an extremely wide casting net being thrown into a rather large sea with endless possibilities. And ps Alan, you may also know me as SimplyReplica ;)

    Its such an open area and open ended question, so more input would be tremendous so that the rest of the crew in here can try and assist in identifying potential targets for you..

    Be well everyone..

    Jason

    ps.. Thanks Bala :)

    Jason,

    You’re absolutely right – I have misquoted….

    This must be where I got the idea that you hadn’t used a name (as OP has not)…

    Bala, Thanks for brining to my attention also…!

    My response certainly makes more sense when viewied in relation to the OP’s open question…

    Thanks…!

    Looking forward to some more info from OP… :-)
