Make sure that your delivery service is 100% reliable.
In years gone by the used to say that a man’s word was his bond and today although in most cases, especially in business the handshake has been replaced by the contract this still holds true. If you make a commitment to deliver certain goods by a certain date you’ll be held to that commitment and if you fail to deliver, rest assured that your customer will very rapidly become your ex customer. The global nature of today’s business environment means that all any product has substitutes and that customers can find alternative sources of supply extremely quickly. So if you outsource your transport to a delivery service provider then you had better be sure that the supplier is 100%reliable. A professional delivery service will be able to handle deliveries, irrespective of the final destination. Whether it’s a bunch of flowers, medical supplies or a load of coal the professional delivery service should be able to take any type of cargo in its stride. A good delivery service will also be able to handle all cargo from the beginning of the journey till the end. For example a load of sunflower seeds should be loaded at the farm or co-op, taken to the factory and pressed. The oil would then be transported to the bottling plant, the oil bottle and then transported to the harbour where it will be warehoused until it is loaded into shipping containers and finally it will be shipped to its final port of call. A professional delivery service will be able to handle the logistics of this entire operation.
Remember if your delivery service slips up even once it can be the difference between your business flourishing or becoming yet another statistic in these tough business times.
If you have even the slightest worry about the professionalism or reliability of the company that is supplying the delivery service then it’s time to look at alternatives. This is highly competitive business sector and there are always options available to the business owner.
