Difference between Courier & Cargo
Key difference: Courier is suited for sending letters, documents, and small parcels. Cargo is usually bulk cargo or materials that need special handling and care. It offers the advantage of speed, security, tracking, signature and specialisation over regular mail services. However, due to this, they tend to be more expensive than standard mail services. Couriers have varying distance scales that they operate on, and some operate within specific towns or cities; some are regional, national or global. Usually, one would use a courier when speed, security, or distance offset the cost.
Cargo mainly refers to a large consignment of goods or products. Most people usually do not require cargo services unless they need to transport something bulky and huge in numbers. Therefore, cargo services are mainly suitable for businesses, such as manufacturers or exporters, usually transported in containers via ship, aircraft, train, van or truck.
Comparatively, cargo is slower, transports large consignments of goods, and guarantees the products' safety. While transporting a large consignment of goods, a cargo service will give a better price than a courier. As a freighter (the cargo service) gets economies of scale, since it transports many goods of many companies together, the total cost of transport gets distributed among the assets. So, the cost per product or for each good is much less than for a courier.
