What is the best courier option for domestic freight?
Have you ever wanted to know what are the best courier options available for sending Domestic Freight within Australia? It might sound like a simple question, but it’s actually very complex, with hundreds, if not thousands of ‘right’ answers, depending on factors such as:

  • What are you sending?
  • What is the urgency? (does it need to be there today/tomorrow/next week?)
  • What is the value of the items being shipped? (for high value items, security considerations are paramount).
  • Is it fragile, and if so, is it sufficiently well packed? (Do you have a need for professional packing services?)
  • Are you sending to a business or a residential address?
  • Will someone be there to receive and sign for the delivery?

When sending freight throughout Australia, consignments can travel through a variety of transport modes.  Most courier companies specialise in one or more transport modes, such as Road (via trucks and vans) or Air (via commercial airliners and dedicated cargo planes) and their delivery infrastructure & capabilities may be stronger in certain parts of Australia.

Freight resellers such as PACK & SEND have the great advantage of alliances with a wide range of the best courier companies across Australia, and the world.  Because we send so much freight, we are able to negotiate great rates – and pass on the savings to our customers.

One thought on “What are the best courier options for sending Domestic Freight?

  1. I have always wondered how you would figure out which courier service to use. I think it’s a great idea to figure out if your package is fragile before hiring a company. I wouldn’t want to find out that the process doesn’t deal with fragile freight, and have it break.
