Courierboard.com announced this week that its online Delivery Network has reached a new milestone with over 1,900 courier companies providing same day delivery service throughout the U.S. and Canada..
Companies and individuals with shipping needs use Courierboard to get competitive rates for same day and other courier services through its network of professional courier companies extending throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Small retailers as well as Fortune 500 companies have used Courierboard’s free quote platform to select courier companies when establishing same delivery systems in single or multiple cities.
Chris Kane, Courierboard's CEO, explained, “More and more companies are starting to offer same day delivery to their customers as a new shipping option. When you have a retail business, being able to deliver a product in hours to your customer’s home or office can make a big difference in making a sale. Outsourcing same day deliveries to professional courier companies is cost effective for retailers, allowing them to offer specialized delivery services without the cost of leasing or purchasing vehicles and hiring drivers.”
Founded in 2007, Courierboard built its online delivery network to connect courier companies from all over the country into one centralized system. Businesses use Courierboard’s free quote system to get multiple, competitive quotes from its network of courier companies serving over 19,000 cities.
Businesses needing courier services post their free delivery quote request on Courierboard which sends the request information to its member courier companies located within 75 miles of the delivery zip code. Courier companies contact the shipper directly with quotes. “Shippers frequently tell us Courierboard is like a Lending Tree for the shipper-courier world," said June Hayford, COO of Courierboard. There are no fees to use Courierboard’s quote system and courier companies pay a fixed monthly membership fee to receive quote requests posted by businesses.
"Our mission statement at Courierboard is 'Let's get It delivered!', " summarized CEO, Chris Kane. "Our goal is very simple - to help businesses connect to courier companies that can get their deliveries done when and where they need it, cost effectively."
