If you’re a business that relies on regular delivery of goods to customers, but don’t want the hassle of owning a fleet of delivery vehicles, or managing staff and costs then choosing a delivery service reseller may be a good option for you.

Resellers are effectively brokers for various delivery services companies, and especially for SMEs offer numerous benefits that are worth elaborating on as follows:

  1. Competitive pricing - the advantage of using a reseller rather than approaching a courier service direct is simple - volumes. SMEs generally only deliver a few parcels a week and therefore cannot generate sufficient volumes to encourage a discounted rate. Resellers, however, book in thousands of parcels from various clients every week and are therefore far more able to receive generous discounts, which they can pass on to their clients. Using a reseller also means you’re far more likely to be able to get consignment rate as well as a single parcel rate - this not only gives you flexibility in how many parcels you can send out at a time, but also helps reduce overall cost for bespoke services.
  2. Personalised service - resellers are predominantly smaller companies who differentiate themselves beyond just price by giving their clients excellent, personalised and tailored service, and building relationships with their clients over months and years of service.
  3. Flexibility through multiple service types - not all courier services may offer the specific service you need, or be able to deliver as urgently, but using a reseller means you’re widening the options, and are thus far more likely to find a service that suits you, and at a competitive price too.
  4. Single point of contact for multiple services - it can be extremely time-consuming requesting cost and delivery options from a range of individual companies. Using a reseller means you’ll have just one point of contact who will help you access multiple pieces of information.

The reseller approach brings numerous and significant cost, time and service benefits, all of which can be passed on to your end-user or client - it’s a win-win for all the parties in the value chain, and therefore something you should seriously consider.
