For example, you cannot parcel any item that crosses the permitted threshold i.e 100 pounds. So naturally, it can be comprehended that this type of courier service is not ideal for business-related delivery as the weight of the deliverables or supplies are unpredictable there. In case the weight exceeds the permissible limit, you need to incur an extra cost on the extra or added weight.

They also need a warehouse to keep track and record of the inventories at frequent intervals. The advantage of using warehousing service is that you need not arrange for space to hoard the company’s stock and inventories. In-house storage shoots up the cost whereas assigning the task of storing goods to a third-part is less expensive and also hassle-free. Your parcels will be in safe hands as dedicated warehouse personnel have got you covered.
It is the highest standard courier service type which only a handful of well-recognized and reputed agencies provide. Usually, the rates are also very high because you are getting premium quality service. These courier companies have full access to port authorities, big sources or connections to deal to permit acquisitions and avail tax discounts. Moreover, international services also involve legal permissions due to political restrictions in some countries. Hence, it is important to check whether your service provider is aware of all international laws regarding the entry to and exit from a particular country.
