Stay Prepared For Christmas With A Dedicated Courier Service

At Speedy Freight, we know that Christmas is an incredibly busy time of year for most of our clients! The festive season can prove difficult for the majority of industries that we support, as they each face varying logistics challenges when trying to meet their own client needs. An airtight supply chain is essential during the winter months, when demand is extremely high and stock often runs out. Meeting the demand of Christmas shoppers can prove challenging no matter your sector: whether your organisation is retail-based, and you need to ensure that you have ample stock of each item; whether it’s staying on top of your restaurant’s ingredient list, within hospitality, or the fast-paced and diverse needs which arise from keeping manufacturing or aviation industries ticking over during the holidays. One of the main ways you can guarantee sufficient stock this Christmas is by staying prepared with a dedicated courier service, like Speedy Freight.

What’s a dedicated courier service, and how can it help my business to stay prepared this Christmas? 


Simply put, a dedicated courier service is exactly what it sounds like. A dedicated courier service, like Speedy Freight, is devoted to the safe and efficient transportation of your items. They ensure this by never co-loading: transporting your consignment without co-loading the vehicle in which it is transported, or using the vehicle to make other, unrelated trips. 

 

Christmas shopping is only possible with courier support for retailers

There are multiple benefits of a dedicated courier service like this. Firstly, you risk no damage to your items by transporting them with other peoples’ items, which otherwise may pose a risk to your consignment. Particularly during the festive period, it’s essential that items arrive to their destination in perfect condition, as a large portion of all goods delivered during the Christmas season are destined to become presents. By choosing a dedicated courier service which guarantees the safe delivery of your goods, you can ensure your business stays prepared for the higher expectations of customers this Christmas.  

 

Secondly, the efficiency of the service is ensured: with no other drops or deliveries to make, the courier is able to take the most direct and efficient route to ensure the safe delivery of your consignment. This is key: particularly given the rise in same day or next-day delivery of the past decade. Online shopping has become a huge feature of Christmas shopping in recent years, with nine in ten people buying at least one Christmas gift online – and the efficiency of the delivery is a large part of attaining customer satisfaction. Indeed, 44% of customers who were purchasing items online have abandoned their purchase because the goods wouldn’t arrive in time! It’s essential, then, to ensure that you can provide efficient next day or  same day delivery, and the best way to do this is with a dedicated courier service. 

 Another benefit of choosing a dedicated courier service this Christmas is the peace of mind you’ll get by working with a courier company that you know you can trust. With over 14 years’ experience, Speedy Freight have delivered almost anything you can imagine: from envelopes to elephants (well, nearly). We’ve got the reviews to prove it! You know that you’re placing your consignments in safe hands when you choose Speedy Freight as your dedicated courier service at Christmas.
