Sending your goods is somewhat exciting and terrifying for the first time. Of course, we wanted our products to be delivered in good shape and on time. We don’t want our customers to give us bad reviews, do we? That is why I compiled a list of courier services in the Philippines to help you select the best courier services for you.
Are there any types of courier and shipping services in the Philippines?
Yes, we do, and we categorized them into five.
Standard courier services
This involves gathering, sorting, and moving parcels into the nearest depot to the shipping place. The package is subsequently packed in a van and delivered to the destination. This support takes a couple of days, and it’s generally the most affordable of courier services.
It is the most expensive among the services, and it is for deliveries, which are urgent in nature.
Overnight courier service
This is just like the standard service, but marginally more costly, and the package is expected to be delivered by the following day.
Worldwide courier services
From the name itself, it is used to transport of goods overseas. The price varies greatly depending upon the size of the package and the delivery time.
Pallet courier services
This is for delivering goods on pallets. This service provides strict delivery programs at affordable prices.
