Businesses that Need Same Day Delivery

Same day delivery: it’s a staple of almost all retail today. It’s a familiar term to many of us perusing online retail sites: the offer of receiving your goods the same day you pay for them ’ is an alluring one to plenty of people in today’s fast-paced world. But same day delivery spans far beyond retail. So which businesses do require same-day delivery? And when same-day delivery is an option, where does this service come from?

What is same day delivery?

Same day delivery is as it sounds; the delivery of items either ordered or booked to be moved on the same day that the ordering or booking process takes place. Many retail companies around the world – including the UK – offer same-day delivery as an increasing norm, whether that’s delivery in bulk to distributors or individually to consumers.

What businesses use same day delivery?

There are a huge number of businesses and industries which require same-day delivery. Key industries that we serve include the grocery industry, manufacturers, fashion retail, homeware, catering, pharmaceutical companies and construction to name a few. Let’s look in more detail at how Speedy Freight can provide same-day delivery for a few of  these industries.


Food & Beverage

Our same day courier service operates for the hospitality and the food manufacturing industries to transport food and beverages when and where they are needed. Understandably, same day delivery is essential in the movement of perishables, as well as the fact that specialised vehicles can be required to transport foodstuffs and beverages in chilled temperatures.


Of course, it’s perhaps no surprise that the medical industry requires some of the most urgent courier services. Biological samples, lifesaving medicines and even vaccines – need to be transported as soon as possible, especially blood and plasma donations. Speedy Freight’s reliability is essential in the medical and healthcare sector, as companies know they can trust us to transport lifesaving goods on time.


Construction / Just In Time Manufacturing

Construction and Just-In-Time manufacturing is another sector in which same-day delivery is essential. A stopped supply chain can cost hundreds – if not thousands – of pounds, and any delay in time is too costly to contemplate for large manufacturing plants and construction projects. Speedy Freight can assist with Just-In-Time manufacturing as well as construction courier services, so our clients know they can rely on us.
