During old times when there were no on-demand delivery applications, sending and receiving any package or parcel was a hassle. Also, some people still experience pain and inconvenience while getting back their parcels from post offices or transport offices and sending packages to the delivery centers for couriering.
Thus, a new feature of door-to-door delivery has been included in the courier service by many dealers. The main aim of the company is improving the quality as well as logistics services along with reducing the burden of people in sending or receiving parcels.
Advantages of door-to-door delivery are as follows:
- It is cheaper than traditional delivery service: There is a belief that door-to-door delivery service is costly, but actually, it is cheaper. It appears to be expensive as there are additional charges which are not levied on courier services that do not pick up and deliver the parcel. But logically when you sum up the charges you will spend in commuting to courier service and the expenses that the recipients will spend in picking up the parcel, hence the door-to-door delivery service is not that costly.
- It saves your time: Commuting and traveling in your vehicle or using public transport for delivering or picking up your parcel requires a lot of time due to traffic and other logistics. Thus instead of doing some productive work, you or the recipient waste your time in either submitting the parcel or picking it up from the delivery center.
- It saves lots of effort: The pick up as well as courier service offering delivery will demand no effort from both the recipient as well as the sender of the parcel. The only thing required by you is to wait for the parcel to arrive at your doorstep by the delivery man. However, with the use of the app, this waiting is also not required as there are tracking facility available by which you can track your package in real time.
