Courier is a fast and easy way to send your important documents and parcels from one place to another place.
As we know that there are several courier service providers available in India to send parcel and document nationally and globally. It is very important to analyze the options available before you select your logistics service provider or courier service provider to send your documents.
There are various service providers such as India Post, FedEx , Blue Dart , DTDC , Aramex, Gati , DHL , UPS , First Flight , Flyking , Delhivery etc.
One should always consider the nearest courier service provider outlets available near the senders or consignor location because if the location of the courier company is far from consignor’s home or office , it will be time taking and also consume money in transportation of the document or parcel to the courier collection center.
The second parameter is that, what type of service quality the courier company provides irrespective of what is the proximity of the courier service provider’s office from your home or office location. Sometimes it happens that any courier company has a robust Network at the consignor’s location , but where the consignment is supposed to be delivered the logistic company or courier company doesn't have a good network , in this situation the delivery of the consignment may get delayed for a long time and customer experience is not pleasant.
In current situation ,India Post is the only logistic or courier provider which is owned by the government of India that is public sector entity, which provides Pan India pickup and delivery services for parcel and document category and after that Blue Dart is the most versatile and networked company in terms of its branches keeping in mind that Blue Dart is also a multinational company of Indian origin and a reputed brand.
There are various logistic /courier companies available in regional areas which operator in a specific region or state and has a good pickup and delivery network, but not Pan India.
The first private sector logistics / courier company which has the robust Pan India network of delivery as well as pickup is Blue Dart and then after DTDC , it is also a logistics / courier company of Indian Origin which renders services in India and also operates globally.
The company which comes after Blue Dart and DTDC is FedEx , an American multinational company which is expanding its networks in India and they are now currently operating at more than 20000 pin code location in India and expanding their network.
FedEx is a multinational brand and world's largest logistics service provider brand but in India this brand is behind Blue Dart and DTDC but its reputation is very high and service network are robust.
Another multinational courier / logistics brand operating in India is Aramex. This company has a head quarter in Jordan. This brand is not as big as FedEx but is second to none. Aramex in India have tied up with various ecommerce companies for providing logistics solution to the ecommerce companies.
The most important factor considered while booking is the shipping cost. At present India Post is the most economical option available, but the service is not so good . Sometimes, it takes more than the expected time in delivering the consignment.In private sector courier or logistic companies, FedEx is the most economical in terms of shipping rates as well as good user experience. It has a very robust pickup and delivery network across India and globally.
