Top Courier Services in Singapore

What is a courier service?

A courier is essentially a private company that provides shipping services. The type of item accepted for shipping differs from company to company, ranging from important documents and valuables to food, flowers, retail merchandise and bulky items.

While there are many ways in which a courier is similar to a postal service, a courier often provides more specialised services with reliable live tracking systems. For example, while most postal services only deliver to registered mailboxes, a courier service can deliver door-to-door, providing SMS and email updates every step of the way. Most couriers even have on-demand and same-day delivery options that make last-minute and late-night deliveries possible.

Below, we present to you the top courier services in Singapore and provide more details on their services and rates.

Who can make use of courier services?

  • Individuals

You could be looking to get an important document mailed out, or maybe you have curated a thoughtful gift hamper that you want to send to your best friend. Whatever the need or size of the package, a courier service is available to fulfill your delivery for you.

Companies like Lalamove even come with on-demand purchase services, which means you could order a pick-up from your favourite hawker stall for lunch and have it delivered to you wherever you are.

  • Small business owners (hawkers, fishmongers, blogshops etc.)

In order to keep up with the times and compete with major supermarkets, vendors in traditional wet markets have taken to using courier services like pickupp to deliver their goods. The best thing about courier services is that many of them offer multiple-stop deliveries, which means you can get your goods delivered all at one go. The same goes for blogshop owners or Carousell retailers who want to save a trip to the post office.

Furthermore, courier services offer live tracking so you can be sure your client has received his or her goods – something that regular post services do not always offer.

  • Corporations

Large e-commerce businesses often use a courier service to arrange their deliveries. That way, they can be certain a customer’s order is fulfilled. They can also make use of the same courier to operate their returns service, or arrange for standard runs with the courier in the event that they want to make the same delivery daily, weekly or monthly (i.e. for groceries or subscription-based goods like magazines).

Moreover, many courier companies offer discounts and special rates to businesses. Some courier services like uParcel also offer logistics and mail room solutions to help businesses maximise their earnings and shipping rates.

E-commerce firms looking to expand their business by shipping overseas will benefit from engaging courier services with an international or regional presence, like Ninja Van. This saves them the time and effort needed to source for a trustworthy local delivery partner overseas.

  • Moving

More and more people are turning to courier services to help them with their move, especially since some courier services offer rental vans and lorries that go up to 24ft. Often, these courier services are cheaper than traditional moving companies, and they even provide the option of additional manpower to help you with your move, for an extra fee.

How do I pick a courier service?

  • Time, Distance and Quantity

When do you need your parcel delivered? How many packages do you need delivered? Do you need to deliver to more than one location? Where do you need your parcel to be delivered to? These are all questions that need to be asked in order to find a courier service that fits your needs.

While most courier companies only operate in the day, there are some like IExpress who provide drivers round the clock, no matter the occasion, which means you can get your package delivered whether it’s 3PM or 3AM.

With regards to quantity, some companies require a minimum number of packages per pick-up, while others charge per package. You should consider if your courier service is able to offer multiple package deliveries and/or multiple stops.

You will also need to determine if your courier service is able to fulfil a delivery to your chosen location. Some companies only cover a certain area, while others provide cross-border and international delivery services.

digital marketing for different business niches

  • Cost

Every courier company has a different way of measuring the cost of delivery. Some companies charge per trip regardless of the size of your parcel, while others charge by weight, not size, and vice versa. The differences are important because you could be saving a lot of money with a courier service that only charges by size if you are having a small but heavy parcel delivered.

Also consider the additional fees that courier companies might charge if your delivery is missed or if you request for a delivery during peak hours.

Benefits of a courier service

  • Easy to use

In a tech-savvy society like Singapore, almost all courier services are available for booking via an app or online. This greatly improves the accessibility of the service and availability of information. Most app interfaces are also easy to use, with instant rate calculators and upfront fees.

  • Affordable & Available on a short notice

Using a courier service saves time and money which would have been spent on cab fares or public transport, should a customer have chosen to personally deliver the item. This is especially so if multiple bulky packages have to be delivered.

On-demand and late-night courier services also come in handy for urgent or last-minute deliveries.

  • Variety of choices

You can get vans and lorries of different sizes for your needs or have the courier company pack your goods for you – you can even use courier services to collect cash on delivery from your clients. The variety of services offered by courier companies are numerous and extensive, with some going all the way as to offer consulting services and warehouse rentals.

The number of choices available increases the possibility of finding a service perfectly suited for the customer’s needs, and the competition between companies keeps delivery costs low.
