Local Courier Delivery Services in Singapore

Postby sillyangel_88 » Mon, 01 Oct 2012 1:40 pm

Hi all,

I am interested to start a new local courier business in Singapore.

Can someone give me their feedbacks on the below questions:

1) What do people look for or expect in a local courier service company?

2) What value added services would people like courier companies to do?

3) How do we get people to try a new courier service company?

Thank you

Indeed. So what will be your 'niche' (USP)?

When you say you'll deliver no later than 6 pm, you deliver no later than 6 pm. And the courier better damn try to contact me and not just glance at the door and leave 30 seconds upon arriving and stick the "failed delivery" slip on my door.

I'm looking at you, SpeedPost and DHL Singapore. :x :x :x

We will provide a value added service where we will give a call to the receiver at least 30 minutes before hand to check if they are available to receive the goods. Or else, it can be re-scheduled at a time where they are convenient.
