How Do Professional Courier Companies Work?


Unlike hiring an independent driver – a professional courier company offers many benefits: 1) 24/7 call centers so you can get a quote and schedule a delivery at any time, 2) insurance protection for your item(s),  3) background screened professional drivers, 4) delivery confirmation systems, and 5) the ability to do many custom delivery jobs, particularly when you have items that are odd shaped, heavy, hard to put in a box or pack, and those requiring white glove or special handling.

The courier company industry is 99 percent comprised of independent courier companies ranging in size from a fleet of 5 trucks to over 4,500. The majority have between 40 up to 300 delivery vehicles available for local and regional delivery service.   To find a local courier company in your area, go to Courierboard.

You can submit a delivery quote request or search Courierboard’s nationwide database of courier companies – both services are free for individuals or companies looking to get a quote or find a courier company meeting the shipper’s requirements.
