Courier Services

September 10, 2018
Couriers are people or companies who are specifically employed to deliver packages, messages and items of mail. Most couriers are generally distinguished from everyday mail and post services, by such features as security, item tracking, speed, signature, individualization and specialization of services and dependable delivery timetables. These services differ from those of ordinary post services which are usually everyday optional mail/post services.

Because couriers run this type of service as a premium service, they are usually more expensive than the more usual available post/mail services, and their use is restricted to parcels, packages and items of mail where one or more of the above features are considered important enough to warrant the extra costs.

There are many different courier services such as Spartan Motorcycle Couriers for example who operate on many different levels and scales from within specific regions, towns and cities.

The types of courier which are used in towns and busy cities very often make use of bicycle or motorcycles for delivering small important consignments. Bicycles and motorcycles are ideal for use in heavily populated areas such as London etc., as they can quickly manoeuvre and negotiate any heavy traffic, which may often be at a standstill.

Consignments which require delivering over long distances and larger networks very often make use of automobiles, motor cycles, trucks, railways and even aircraft.

Some companies operate by a JIT inventory or Just in Time method and these methods make use of on board couriers. An on board courier is an individual who will travel at a moments notice anywhere in the world by using commercial airlines, and while this type of service is extremely costly, general aviation charters are a lot more expensive.

Speciality couriers exist, and are usually for the transportation of articles such as sensitive documents, liquids and freight/palettes.

Sameday couriers are companies that will deliver in less than twenty four hours. In the United Kingdom, many of the couriers or despatch riders were motorcyclists when the sameday delivery service got started in London.

In the 1980s bicycle couriers were used for economical shorter distance deliveries, and started to replace motorcycle couriers in many cities.

In today's economical climate the trend has been for companies to use next day deliveries as they are less expensive.

Riding your motorbike in winter

September 5, 2017
You might have noticed it's been getting cold. This is the time of year when a lot of riders give their bikes a good clean, wheel them into a corner of the garage, plug in a battery charger and forget about them until the spring.
Yet in some respects, winter is the best time to be riding because congestion is worse and parking a car more difficult. As we reported earlier this year, a small increase in the number of cars has a disproportionately large effect on congestion, and when the weather ...

Working as a motorcycle courier / motorcycle messenger

August 18, 2017
Although most courier work is done using cars and vans, becoming a motorcycle courier is also a viable career move. One reason for this is the fact that goods and documents can often be transported more quickly by motorbike, as they are less likely to be held up in traffic queues. Because of this, a motorcycle courier is often the preferred choice for small goods or urgent documents that need delivering in a matter of hours (or less). Most of the time, motorcycle couriers are based in large c...
