When inventory is ready to be shipped, there are a variety of options available to transport your product to its destination. A combination of physical factors such as size, volume and weight with independent requirements such as timescale play a factor in choosing what shipping service suits your needs best. Essentially the decision comes down to a shipping carrier or shipping courier service.

But what’s the difference and which one is best for you?

Shipping Carriers

Carriers handle large quantities of product through their LTL or FTL services. Carrier services are tailored to handle pallet and skid loads and are loaded via loading dock or with a pallet jack/forklift. While it can be extremely cost-efficient, delivery time is often greater.

Shipping Couriers

On the other hand, courier services specialize in delivering smaller shipments. Handling anywhere between 1 and 15 boxes, courier services usually offer door to door shipping services for your product. Although offering reliable and extremely fast delivery, courier services often require a larger budget and carry restrictive size limitations.
