Precision and Popularity of the Parcel Delivery Service

 

In today’s e-commerce market, it is easy to find a parcel delivery service online.  Not many, though, realize how the fast parcel delivery service of today came about.  In 1852, a small company, Wells Fargo made the parcel delivery service popular.  Wells Fargo came along at a time before railroads, which mostly took over the parcel delivery service, were wide-spread within the United States. 

They began their parcel delivery service primarily as a way to transport gold from the various gold rush areas out west to the eastern seaboard at a cheaper cost than the United States Postal Service who charged exorbitant rates for their parcel delivery service.  Wells Fargo had a monopoly on the parcel delivery service until 1869 when the Transcontinental Railroad was completed.  In 1913, the United States Postal Service began its free rural parcel delivery service that fueled the rise in catalog sales.  FedEx, a major parcel delivery service, pioneered airmail in the early 1970’s, which enabled a faster way to utilize its parcel delivery service and, subsequently, almost all parcel delivery service carriers of today.

Then, e-commerce came along.  Today, the fastest growing parcel delivery service is the discount internet parcel delivery service sites that will pick up and ship packages quickly at a click of the mouse.  The demand for an inexpensive parcel delivery service became almost overwhelming.  Consumers did not want to pay exorbitant prices to any parcel delivery service.  Larger usually included fuel surcharges and residential delivery fees that consumers were not willing to pay a parcel delivery service for.

The discount parcel delivery service arose because of the e-commerce demand for parcel delivery service.  This is because using a parcel delivery service is usually quick and easy. A lot of discount parcel delivery service carriers are really a hidden way to access big parcel delivery service carriers.  These larger parcel delivery service carriers work via a middleman.  The discount parcel delivery service will buy up delivery slots in bulk from the larger parcel delivery service and sell them to the public. 

A major drawback very small parcel delivery service that carriers face is the fact that they can be slow to respond to parcel delivery service complications and complaints because the parcel delivery service is too small to keep up with the busy schedule of being a parcel delivery service.  I’d say a medium sized parcel delivery service is the best bet.  A balance between cost and service when utilizing a parcel delivery service is needed.  It would be a good idea to research an unknown parcel delivery service that is offered. Obtaining insurance is a good idea just in case problems arise while using the parcel delivery service.

Regional parcel delivery service arose in the past 20 years, and it is being used extensively within many of the markets outside of the e-commerce trade.  This is because the regional parcel delivery service can offer longer pickup times and these parcel delivery service carriers usually offer cheaper rates because the overhead fees of gas and mileage for the parcel delivery service is decreased.

Very recently, the USPS has tried to get back on the bandwagon in providing more cost effective parcel delivery service by offering flat rate shipping but their tracking services are not as comprehensive as other parcel delivery service carriers. 

Packaging of parcels to be picked up by a parcel delivery service requires common sense.  Almost all parcel delivery service carriers have a forbidden list that encompasses all items that the particular parcel delivery service will not pick up or deliver.  A check of this list is necessary because use of a parcel delivery service that includes the item to be shipped on its forbidden list is a hassle.  The best suggestion is to leave the package top open so that the parcel delivery service, when they make a pickup, can inspect the package.

Packaging of the parcel requires thought into how the parcel delivery service will treat your package.  A parcel delivery service, small and large, usually concentrates on speed of service.  Therefore, parcel delivery service carriers may overlook some precautionary measures necessary to make sure the package being taken by the parcel delivery service is well taken care of.  Many parcel delivery service carriers, especially large parcel delivery service carriers, train their delivery people extensively on how to handle packages properly. 

Unfortunately, even large parcel delivery service carriers cannot be there all the time to make sure the package in question is being handled properly.  Therefore, many parcel delivery service carriers recommend the item be packaged in a bigger box to accommodate the item to be sent by the parcel delivery service.  Parcel delivery service carriers also recommend that packing materials be used for all items.  Almost all parcel delivery service carriers require consumers to sign a no-fault waiver to acknowledge that the parcel delivery service will not be liable for any damage to the package unless the consumer purchases insurance. 

Parcel delivery service carriers are very widespread today because of people’s requirements for a comprehensive parcel delivery service that will enable the consumer to rely on their chosen parcel delivery service for a quick and accurate service.
