Either way, the courier environment in Singapore is highly competitive, with delivery companies offering a variety of different delivery services that can be tailor made to specific business types. We are sharing with you the 3 types of delivery services that your company can leverage on to cater to your business needs! The type of delivery service Singapore companies offer range from 1-3 days to express to custom delivery, and the list goes on. Let’s dive into the three most popular delivery services used in Singapore to see which is most suitable for your business!
1-3 Days Delivery
If your business requires you to deliver goods for customers to receive their parcels within a short time frame, chances are, you will most likely be making use of 1-3 working day delivery services. The good news is that many courier service in Singapore offer this service. It is one of the more cost effective delivery options and customers will still be able to receive their deliveries before the third working day.
For reference, Lalamove Singapore offers van delivery service across Singapore. A delivery requiring a 1.7 metre van with a weight limit of 350 kilogram and size limit of 160 X 120 X 100 cm (L X W X H) would cost a base fare of $30 and $0.50 per additional kilometre.
Own a small bakery business at home or handling perishable goods? A local delivery service will be able to help you deliver your freshly baked cupcakes to your hungry customers. As the term implies, express delivery is a more niche service because of the shorter time frame that is given to the delivery company to deliver the goods to the customer. Due to the urgency of the job, it is little wonder that this type of fast delivery service costs more than normal courier services. Express delivery service sees the courier company assigning drivers or delivery runners at a faster rate and these courier services work round the clock to ensure that customers receive their parcels and documents within the given time frame.
UParcel offers 3 hours’ express delivery service and the price of services start from only $13. Express deliveries also include tracking, SMS notifications, email delivery updates and delivery confirmation for the sender and the recipient to be in the loop every step of the delivery.
If your business deals with more specialised goods that require dedicated services, custom delivery is the best option for you. For instance, if you are running a food catering company, you will want to ensure that the delivery company you engage offers custom and specialised equipment that is appropriate for transporting your food.
One such courier company that offers this service is FastFast Delivery. Depending on the items that need to be delivered, the sender will be able to indicate custom instructions like requesting for a refrigerated van for transporting food or providing a surprise to recipient when delivering a bouquet. The additional charges for custom delivery that FastFast Delivery offers range from affordable charges of $1 to $2.
