Home Delivery Network

Home Delivery Network

A home delivery network is similar to carriers but tends to cater for larger deliveries with more value (which means the delivery can absorb a higher delivery cost). These deliveries are not usually suitable for transferring across vehicles or moving via hubs due to their complexity in terms of number of items; they are also likely to have a lower drop density than parcel deliveries. Some home delivery networks may use two man teams to cope with heavy weights or large items. Typical examples are in the home improvement sector, such as the home delivery of flat-pack kitchens, a delivery that could have 60-100 items from boxes to long pieces to handles and accessories.
