Being a person passionate about courier deliveries in Singapore, I may be unique. However, from what I know, there are many people who are planning to enter this industry, or whom constantly use courier services and among that group of people, this is a very popular topic – courier deliveries in Singapore.
Courier deliveries in Singapore is a very unique thing, and you won’t hear too much about it in most other countries – probably except for large cities like New York e.t.c.
Here’s why it’s so unique:
- Courier services in Singapore are usually only engaged by companies or self employed personnel. Few consumers use courier services because they’ve never heard of it, or the item they need to pass to someone else is not of an urgent nature. Therefore, most consumers would rather take the time to travel and meet their friend to pass them the item instead. However, when it comes to companies, there is no time for the self employed to perform these menial tasks, and the boss would definitely not want an employee to waste 2 hours delivering something which could be done by an external deliveryman instead. That 2 hours would be better put to use to producing more revenue for the company.
- Singapore is a city state. It’s not the only one in the world, but one of the rare few. This means that literally the entire country has tons of businesses all around the place – something unheard of. This is because even for the supposed ‘suburbs’ in Singapore, there are also many small companies there. Every company requires paperwork, and not all paperwork can be relegated to email. Some stuff still needs to be done via paper and pen. This is why courier services is very popular in Singapore as there are many businesses in Singapore.
- There are more banks and companies in Singapore to people then there are banks and companies to people in most other countries. The high ratio means that there is a high demand for courier deliveries for contracts, vendor agreements and cheque deposits in Singapore than anywhere else in the world (at least on a country basis).
This also means that you need to engage a courier company worthy of trust and is responsible. Make sure to use a brand like PCA Masters courier service www.pcamasters.com/courier-delivery-singapore/ for deliveries within Singapore or an international one like Fedex www.fedex.com/sg/ if you need overseas deliveries from Singapore to other countries.
