There is a list of features that customers think are the most important when they are trying to decide which courier service to ship their goods with. They often are looking for the best prices, the best customer service, and the fastest delivery times. However, there are also many other features which customers appreciate their couriers having, and these can also play a decision into which courier they end up choosing.
One of the most sought after of those features is now GPS tracking, and most companies are now offering it. Because it is so affordable to implement, most customers are now expecting companies to have it, and are unsure about those which have not yet put these types of systems in place. It should usually be very easy to find out whether or not a courier has GPS tracking available, as they will usually mention it directly in their add or certainly on their website if it is not clear in other marketing materials.
The only problem that you have to worry about if you are using a courier that has GPS tracking is you have to be careful about how much they’re going to be charging you for that feature. In an effort to defer the cost of having to implement the systems which make GPS tracking possible, many couriers will add a fee or surcharge to their bills for the GPS tracking. Just be sure to ask beforehand about any surcharges and fees that you might be paying for to see if you’re paying extra for the tracking capabilities.
This isn’t an across the board rule however, and every company is going to set their own policies on matters like this. While some companies want to pass the cost to their customers, others look at it as such an irresistible marketing point that they implement it of their own accord without charging extra simply in order to entice more customers to the company. These might be the couriers that you want to do business with, rather than the ones who are charging you for it.
GPS tracking is one of those features which is nice, but isn’t really essential in any way. It doesn’t protect your package or get it delivered any faster, so at times your money could be spent better elsewhere if a company is going to attempt to charge you for this feature, but is nice if it is provided freely.
