At the moment the situation with courier services is quite rosy. The privatisation of Royal Mail and the opening up of its markets has meant that there is lots more choice for residential and commercial plus B2B traffic for the consumer and use ro choose from. The need for immediate postal requirements or even a service that Same Day Courier Camberley based firm UKTDL provide has risen greatly. Now companies and businesses look to be more dynamic in their outlooks plus more demanding of the service needs.
What does the future hold for these businesses? Again there is reason to be hopeful. The rise of the online shop has brought great growth potential. The recent crisis has seen a massive influx of online shopping activity. The High Street was already in trouble and with the trend of today’s online sales exponentially growing year on year with no signs of abatement this crisis may well have sped up this High Street decline for all but a few. However the immediacy of the town or shopping experience still holds many consumers in its thrall.
For the online companies, or those that are starting to dabble in it, the way to beat the others both static and online is to offer that immediacy. Using same or next day couriers either inhouse or by tender has brought the speed of delivery to the home. It is already in place with food retailers such as Just Eat. This is where the future of the courier depends.
