Man Happily Delivers Parcel to CustomerA single parcel received from a loved one during the holidays is enough to bring gladness to your heart and tears of joy in your eyes. But have you ever thought how much work was done just to deliver that from a loved one to you?

Welcome to the world of same-day parcel collection and delivery where the goal is always to convey love over long distances. The tireless effort of unknown selfless entities employed at companies offering these services makes all things possible for you and your loved one.

The Partnerships

Huge parcel companies receive hundreds (or even thousands) of parcels for delivery across a vast number of different locations every day. Even though they have hundreds of delivery trucks at their disposal, the task required is so gigantic that they need partnerships with parcel management companies. The job of these contractors is to ensure that they accomplish same-day parcel deliveries in a timely manner. According to International Post Corporation, millions of parcels and packages are delivered in Europe alone due to the growth of online shopping.

The Process

Major parcel businesses assign tracking numbers of a number of packages to the contractor. It is the responsibility of these contractors to withdraw the packages from the airport, seaport, or train transport holding area and bring the same to their own processing areas. The size of these processing areas is anywhere between a regular garage and a large warehouse, depending on the volume capability of the contractor.

The Sorting

As soon you unload them, employees would sort out the parcels according to size and the time it was shipped. A high degree of accuracy is essential at this point because some customers are meticulous about timely delivery. Holidays are the busiest time of the year when employees of parcel management companies forget getting gifts for their families because they are so busy tending to other people’s parcels. Once you’re done, you are once again going to load the parcels into assigned delivery trucks or vans for final dispatch.

As promised, same-day delivery packages are always received by recipients on time. Mercury News mentioned that this is all possible because of the backbreaking and sleep-deprived dedication of couriers. Despite this, both the delivery personnel and recipient are happy at the end of the day. For the former, it is the fact that he was able to fulfill the promise of timely delivery. For the latter, it is the joy that such parcel brought him on a special day.
