Do you use overnight couriers for local deliveries?

Many businesses do, assuming that they will always receive a lower price than sending the same package via a same-day courier. You might be surprised to learn that Green Delivery Service offers same-day delivery to most local areas at lower rates than the national companies charge for next day delivery.

Save even more on courier deliveries when your shipment is larger than a standard letter.

Sending packages or boxes via overnight air express couriers becomes less efficient as you add any amount of weight or size to your shipment. The extra cost of an unfortunate necessity if your are sending out of the local region. However, when the destination within the local region you can reduce shipping costs dramatically with Green Delivery Service.

* Table is for example purposes and listed rates apply only to the specific zones/areas shown. Rates are based on mileage and other factors. The rate to other zones may vary significantly if the mileage is significantly different. "Same Day" delivery is defined as a pickup and delivery that can be made at any time during normal business hours (8 hour minimum). For shorter time requirements, choose 3-4 Hour or Rush. Always call for the rate for your zones.

The table above is an example of a single delivery within the local area, with a weight ranging between one and 40 pounds. Above 40 lbs, the price difference for same-day delivery service becomes even greater. Overnight air courier service was not designed to handle shipments of more than a few pounds or non-conforming package dimensions.
