Courier • A courier is a person or company employed to deliver messages, packages and mail. • distinguished from ordinary mail services by features such as speed, security, tracking, signature, specialization and individualization of services, and committed delivery times, which are optional for most everyday mail services. • couriers are usually more expensive than usual mail services
Logistics • Logistics is the management of the flow of goods, information and other resources, including energy and people. • involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material-handling, and packaging, and occasionally security.
Difference Between Courier & Logistics Courier services offers to serve only documents and portable goods (not big consignments). Courier services is better to send and receive documents fast and safe. Few courier services providers offer portable goods transport those are not very big in size and heavy. Courier service provider company's in India are, Blue Dart, Gati Courier, DTDC, etc.Logistics Company offers to serve heavy goods transport through truck, rail, flights. Logistics service provider company's in India are, DHL, etc.
Contd….. The basic difference between courier and logistics company is that logistics deals with the business network that manages material, information, capital flows and services to the customers. It is a wider concept in all together. Courier companies usually deals with the management and shipment of small packages but now a days even they have started making it big by investing in big freight ventures. We usually compares such companies on basic 3 S's: service, safety and speed provided by them. If a courier company is rated more than a logistic in these 3 S's in an area then go for it. Additionally, it depends on the type of item you want to transport. I usually prefer fast and secure courier company for small household transportation and logistics company for bigger shipments.
