  • The problem of courier is indeed being seen more these days, but still, some courier services can provide good and fast service.

    DTDC is a large Express Delivery Network in India. Although it is very old courier services, even today its efficiency is greatly affected. In this, your courier arrives quickly and safely. Due to the convenience of online tracking, you can also view the status of your parcel.

    Madhur Courier - There is hardly any place where Madhur courier is not available. Everywhere you will find a small office, sweet courier. Everyone is also aware of its functioning. Through this, parcels can be delivered on time.

    First Flight - It is believed that it is the first courier company in India. Its service is also very good. The name itself suggests that according to this its delivery process is very fast. In this also you can keep tracking your parcel online.

    Trackon Courier Service - This courier company also has very good services which are very safe in terms of security. Currently, its offices are in the cities only, so you will have to take information about whether there is this arrangement at your local residence.

    Indian Postal Service - Even though many private companies are giving good service, but with this, the work of the Indian Postal Service has also always been good. Admittedly, this may take some delay or time, but the security guarantee is also there.

    Blue Dart - This company has also given very good service and has made its mark. You can courier the parcel by this as well.

    Overnight Express Limited - It is also a specialized domestic courier service that works on a large scale and provides good service.

  • If it is for within local limits or within your state, i is better and prudent to select the popular local courier. If it is to major cities in other states within India, and if the consignment is not very large,then it is better to send by Speed Post. In Kerala the Kerala State Transport Corporation has started courier facility at selected KSRTC depots. They take it and deliver within the state within a day or latest by next day. You may verify any such service is available in your state.

    Otherwise, from my receiving experience I can say that Blue Dart and FedEx are the best followed by Xpress Bees.
    From my experience Delhivery is the worst. In the past many times, I had commented and recommended to many shopping portals not to send by them . I am not sure whether Delhivery have improved by now.

    Most are surface couriers. Surface couriers share the vehicles except in the case some very few courier companies who have their own dedicated vehicles and logistics support. Hence most consignments are reaching by same time and then segregated from the hubs and taken and delivered by the various couriers intended to. Here depending on whether they have own branch or franchisee or arrangement, the delivery may differ by one or two days. Most such couriers do not deliver on Sundays and holidays.

    Many shopping portals use DTDC and Delhivery for sending the consignments. When E-Bay was there I used to get most of my consignments by FedEx or Blue Dart. They were pretty fast. Professional courier is okay, but many times they used to telephone an ask us to collect the consignment from their office citing one or other reason. That depends on the local situations.

    You may select the courier depending on the value and importance of the consignment and also considering the urgency of delivery need.

  • Our company which used to send many parcels across the country has engaged DTDC courier services in the past and their services were horrible because every day we used to face one issue or the other as they would carry the parcels to places other than the designated pin code and getting the same as return was the hell out service. So we have discontinued them and engaged the Delhivery courier service who are now offering a very good service and the delivery time is also good. Normally we used to take 7 days to reach the parcel in Tamil Nadu through DTDC but Delhivery is giving the parcels on third day itself and that is very good service and we got appreciation for fast delivery of goods Moreover they made as the Franchisee and that means we are eligible for low cost per packet and thus we are saving heavily on the parcels and good name and fame from the customer. Hardly there are any complaints from the customers.
