If you need help with a small package delivery, you can hire a courier service. Courier services differ from regular mail because they provide speed, tracking systems, and accuracy. Plus, surveys show that almost all (99%) of courier drivers have years of experience as professional drivers.
This method of small package delivery is incredibly popular, as there are approximately 514,921 courier employees in the country, even though the typical courier company only employs around 25 individuals. That means that there are about 20,500 small courier companies.
Between all of these different small package delivery services, there have certainly been a number of strange things shipped. To wit, here are some of the weirdest, most bizarre deliveries.
What’s in the box!?
Popular food television program, Bizarre Foods, often receives tips from their viewers about exotic locales and the weird foods to be found there. When a box labeled “perishable goods” arrives at the network’s headquarters, everyone gets a little on edge. The show even has a Youtube series about unboxing these mysterious products. Such foods they’ve received include whole suckling pigs, a wild boar shoulder, and even a stuffed buffalo head.
Crazy subscription services!
Following the success of Netflix, many start-ups are offering subscription services to common everyday things. Yet, some of these items are not what you’d normally have a subscription for. Some of these services include bondage toys, tampons, dive bar t-shirts, and razors.
As a small business, I’m sure you’re not going to send your customers wild boar or sanitary products through small package deliver services, but courier services can deliver important documents the same day, and offer other helpful amenities like tracking.
