Proof of Delivery
Proof of Delivery – what is it? The humble Proof of Delivery, the simple P.O.D. (let’s get this straight before we go any further – it’s P.O.D. and never POD as in iPOD), so often overlooked and rarely credited with being as crucial to the delivery cycle as it is. Viewed by many as just a receipt for goods as delivered from one location or organisation to another. “Get something signed, anything will do” is often the case. But really, is it… Read More
Not Next Day Delivery
Not Next Day Delivery Okay; so, we’ve talked in length about the huge differences between same day courier services and over night or next day couriers back in March. However; a situation occurred recently that perfectly demonstrates why, often, it pays to bite the bullet and pay for a dedicated delivery service. Many of us enjoy the simple pleasure of the bi-annual “smart phone upgrade day”; when we sit excitedly waiting for the next day delivery man to turn up with the… Read More
As a sameday courier our job is to deliver your parcels, packages and pallets, intact and on time. But for many clients we take that extra step and when we’re delivering technical items such as computers, computer components and exhibition and display materials, our technical couriers can often be found connecting them or fully installing them. It just makes sense for our customers that our highly trained technical couriers install the deliveries they make rather than waiting for an independent “expert” to… Read More
We’re always on the go here at Exceed – par for the course for busy couriers – but you may be surprised with just how hectic our delivery schedules really can be…. or the range of goods that we routinely carry. To give you a little flavour of an average week, take a look at the activity of one of our small vans based out of our North Wales office……. Conwy to Cambridge with water samples for analysis, Huntingdon to London with… Read More
Courier Services Explained
When you’ve been providing courier services as long as we have its easy to make the simple mistake of assuming that everyone understands exactly what you do and precisely what services your business provides. Despite our targeted marketing it’s really not uncommon for us to calculate a cost-effective solution for a sameday delivery, to Glasgow for example, and for the enquirer to respond with something along the lines of “why do you cost so much when Parcel Force will do it for… Read More
Secure Courier Service
It’s unfortunately become the norm to open the paper or switch on the news and learn of yet another high-profile data breach or “information hack”. From Dun and Bradstreet to Equifax, and Ebay to the NHS, it seems that none of our formerly trusted organisations can keep our private and personal data out of the public domain……. worse still out of the hands of internet miscreants! What’s a little scarier, and rather more personal, is that data breaches aren’t limited to the… Read More
A Great Courier Service?
We’ve recently been trying to pin down exactly what customers really want from a great courier service? Shouldn’t be too hard to answer should it? Is it just down to the price? Or, conversely, up to quality of the service? Speed in making the collection and same day delivery perhaps? Or simply knowing that the right vehicles are always available to them? Many people would prefer to pay as little as possible to have their parcels and pallets delivered by a courier… Read More
Kentucky Fried Cock-up………….
Kentucky Fried Cock-up …………..Somewhere mid-2017 and the team at KFC Towers are brainstorming ideas to reduce costs and improve service levels for their legions of deep fried, crispy crumbed fanatics….. “I’ve got it!” “Let’s move logistics from our trusted long-term, specialist niche food logistics partner, to a company with a very questionable reputation in the food delivery industry?” “Will it be cheaper? And better?” “Well that’s what they said….” Okay – lets hope that isn’t what really happened (but, hey, you never… Read More
