Difference Between Cargo And Courier from the UK
At times we’ve come across the situation where customers are uncertain of services they would like to avail. They often find themselves confused between Courier and Cargo.
One of the significant difference is the time taken; generally sending the Courier from the UK will take 2 to 5 working days (depending on location in the destination) from the dispatch date. Wherein the Cargo will take about 5 to 7 working days from the time of the flight.
When you choose to use a courier from the UK, your package includes a door pick-up, the UK customs clearance, the air freight, the destination customs clearance and lastly the delivery at your door (note you the delivery doesn’t include the customs duties). On the other hand, a cargo service comprises air freight and delivery til airport. Another difference between the two is that the courier service is somewhat an expensive buy.
In contrast, a cargo service is economical. The cargo service is best suited for sending excess baggage and commercial goods in bulk quantity since it’s a standard mode of transfer. And the courier service is an apt option for sending small shipments and parcels. One more difference is the weight limit. With courier, you have a weight limit per box, and you’re not allowed to send box if the limit exceeds. Wherein, a cargo service curbs those restrictions to a large extent, which means, generally you can ship heavy boxes even they are in unconventional shape (but packing need to be appropriate).
Indeed, we hope the above information will help make thing secure and select appropriate service or your Courier to Bangladesh from the UK.
