When you think of courier services, it’s likely you think of large shipping companies you’ll never be able to put a name and face to. Or it’s Canada Post that comes to mind. Large courier companies and delivery services usually have two things in common – one-size-fits-all delivery options and a website that lets you track your parcel and lets you know if it’s delayed (typically with no explanation as to why). They work well if you have a one-off parcel to send once in a while.

Courier Services for Local Businesses
In order to keep up with newer shopping habits, many businesses need to have parcels of varying sizes delivered within a few hours of customers ordering their goods. It’s a difficult task for small to medium-sized businesses without their own logistics teams and delivery drivers. Add the tracking details that customers expect to the mix, and satisfying customer expectations can seem impossible. The right courier service company can take care of all these issues.
Numode Delivery Solutions was established to provide high-quality courier and freight deliveries for businesses located in and around the Greater Vancouver area.
What is a Courier Service?
Courier services vary in capabilities and shipping regions. They are typically privately-owned companies that can deliver everything from an envelope to larger items – locally, nationally, or internationally – depending on the services they offer.
How a Local Courier Service Can Benefit Your Business
A local courier service can take care of all the logistical details you need to help you conduct your business better. A few other benefits include:
- They are usually more affordable than the bigger companies.
- They are easy to contact – unlike large companies, which will bounce you from one call centre to the next; your local courier company will usually have a point person in charge for you to speak with if necessary.
- They can offer you bespoke services that can change as your needs do.
- They know your area well – so they’ll use the best routes to get your packages where they need to be.
- They offer the same high-tech tracking services as everyone else.
What Sets Numode Apart
Apart from all the benefits mentioned above, Numode has a strong commitment to the local community. Based on the ethos of supporting local businesses in the Greater Vancouver region, Numode was a proud recipient of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Best New Business Award in 2019. The company continually strives to set a new industry standard for social and environmental ethics by making social responsibility a core part of its business strategy. Therefore, Numode Delivery Solutions donates a share of its profits to local charities (e.g., Greater Vancouver Foodbank). A majority of customer shipments are completed in hybrid vehicles, so your deliveries have a lower impact on the environment. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
