Carriers

Carriers

Carrier companies are used for deliveries to consumers’ homes, usually small/medium sized parcels, often single items. A carrier parcel’s journey will not usually be on a carrier vehicle for its whole journey: it could start by being collected from the originator with a number of other parcels on a large vehicle, taken to a carrier’s national or reginal hub, sorted by geography, transported to local hubs and then onto a suitable vehicle for the last leg of delivery to the consumer’s home. This last leg is sometimes sub-contracted to owner drivers, often not in the livery of the carrier company or working for more than one carrier companies.
