  • Courier and Logistics companies comes under freight company which specializes in shifting or transportation of articles or materialistic things from one place to another. These materialistic things may include any kind of paper document, to large items. Any means of transportation like by road, rail, air and/or water may be used to transport the items and depending on the mode, the time of transportation and shipment charges are laid down for the customers.

    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.

    I 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.
