DOOR TO DOOR COURIER
Many top courier providers such as FedEx, TNT, DHL and Aerospeed Couriers offer a door to door courier service. The client phones the courier company and requests a collection for door to door courier service. The courier organization sends a vehicle to the address at which the consignment is located and collects it. It is subsequently returned to the local business hub. At the hub each consignment is classified and deposited in an area devoted to a specific distribution city, town or country. Once sorted, for normal over night door to door service, the day’s collections remain in the hub until a set cut-off time period. By the cut off time a vehicle usually takes all the days collections for door to door courier and delivers it to their agent at the town or city airport. At the air port the overall consignment for every desired destination is loaded onto a flight bound for the particular destination. During the night the consignment for door to door courier arrives at the ascertained destination air port. At the desired destination air-port the courier company’s representative hands the consignments over to the vehicle driver of a pick-up that takes the door to door courier consignments towards the courier company’s local hub. At the local hub the letters, documents as well as packages are categorized into street address destinations of about thirty for each door to door operater. The motorists for each distribution run then deliver each consignment to every receiver, usually by 10 thirty in the morning. Distribution by ten 30 in the morning hours is the typical average door to door courier service. However, a next day door to door courier service is actually usually just possible to main zones with an airport. If the door to door courier service is destined for a smaller hub it is then driven to that smaller place that day and is either delivered door to door later on in the day or in the case of more distant destinations, the next day. In the instance of door to door courier distribution of international consignments, the same pertains, if the delivery street address is close to a main international air-port, but delivery is either later in the day or very early the following day. Most door to door courier deliveries to international addresses within cities with a major air port will be sent door to door within 48-72 hours anyplace inside the world. This particular 48-72 hours door to door courier delivery service is only possible, provided consignments are not really held up in customs, over which the courier business has no controls.
