We have seen a rise in entrants of global and local express, courier, and shipping companies to the Philippines market. The presence of DHL, FedEx, and TNT often in ventures with local partners or affiliates.
However, for many small businesses who require same day deliveries to their customers, an express courier or shipping company such as DHL, FedEx, or TNT doesn’t make the grade. First, many small businesses do not meet the early morning cut-off times to make same day. Second, many small businesses have multiple packages and bulky items that drive up same day delivery costs substantially.
Most small and medium business enterprises (SMEs) thrive from transactions on their website, Facebook pages, and other phone and home delivery transactions. Most of these business owners are also full-time or part-time professionals. The hassle of communicating with a number of suppliers is a task that may simply add to their never ending list of things to accomplish. They need a goods and merchandise delivery option that meets their on-demand needs, unpredictable volumes, as well as their limited budget.
Another issue encountered by SMEs when using traditional courier and shipping companies is that although they offer pick-up services, they charge high fees for this and don’t guarantee fixed schedules. Often windows of time may be within a wide 4-6 hour range. Business owners might wait for a better part of a day for the delivery man to arrive for their pickup. This is clearly a gap in service that needs to be addressed.
