There was a time not so long ago when people used to rely on postal services while courier services were engaged only for high priority services and deliveries. However, as time went by, the trust on postal services started reducing. Slowly and steadily, courier companies started expanding their portfolio and service levels.

While initially there was a hesitation of high cost from the perspective of engaging courier services specifically in developing countries like India, very soon consumers realized the business advantage and value that courier companies offer. Another important factor that added to this trend was the economies of large scale. When a large consumer base began engaging the services of courier companies, those companies were able to lower their affective costs and offer affordable prices to consumers.

The rise of online retail companies has also provided a huge impetus to courier companies. This is one industry that cannot sustain itself without the support of surface logistic companies. In fact, these are companies that also provide value–added services like reverse logistics and pick-up services to online retailers. These are services that have become essential to the business of online retail companies.

The key reason why consumers are willing to pay a premium for engaging consumer companies is the promise of reliability and accountability that they offer. In fact, large courier companies have established a huge network including their own transport jets and a huge truck fleet. This creates a high level of confidence in the minds of consumers as they know they are dealing with a company that has a large established network. Such companies have a goodwill that even surpasses that of Government postal services.

The advancement of logistics companies has come as a boon for service based sectors like banking and telecom. It would have been unthinkable for them to provide documents like bills, debit cards, statements, pin numbers etc to consumers on time without the support of courier companies.

Accountability is a key advantage offered by courier services in India. With some of them being available online, consumers are able to track their packages with accuracy and peace of mind. Their contact centers are also able to address consumer queries and hence provide high customer service. It is indeed unthinkable for the modern world to sustain without the support of effective and efficient logistic companies. We can surely look forward to even better qualitative improvement in the services offered by courier and logistic companies.
