Companies are striving now more than ever to offer their customers better and more variety when it comes to delivery options. From same day delivery to next day delivery and express, it’s now easier than ever for customers to organise exactly when and where they’d like their parcel to be delivered to fit around their busy lives. High street giants are thinking up more innovate ways to deliver parcels with Audi and Amazon’s recent car boot delivery trial being a big success, with big businesses pulling out all the stops what can your business do to keep up?

Offer the essentials
Customers love options so it’s important to offer all the essential delivery options that other businesses offer. Always have a next day delivery option if possible. Next day means that a customer can pay a little extra and receive their goods the next day without an issue which is a service a lot of customers often pay more for without questioning. If your business is quite small and struggles to offer next day delivery, why not trial a click and collect service so that customers can nip into your premises to pick up their parcels.

Businesses are trying to make online shopping easier than ever before. Convenience is the key to success and with so many big businesses trying to make collecting a parcel more convenient deliveries their priority, you’ve got to try and keep up. Same day delivery is proving to be the newest venture with a lot of big companies currently trialling the service. There are many couriers offering great same day delivery rates like InXpress, and it can often be easier for small businesses to offer a same day service if they don’t have a warehouse or location to store goods as getting parcels out the very same day saves space.

Go international

International delivery is now something offered by a lot of online businesses and well worth considering for your business. If you mainly operate online, appealing to different markets is a great way to increase your profits. With many couriers offering both domestic and international delivery services at such great rates it’s easy to see why so many businesses are finding it easier than ever to expand overseas.

Businesses are changing when it comes to deliveries so it’s essential that your businesses offers the most convenient fast options in order to compete with others in the industry.
