There are number of factors that could affect the cost of your deliveries. Please find a list of factors to consider below.
Vehicle Type: The larger the vehicle, the higher the cost of the delivery.
Distance: The longer the distance from the pickup point, the higher the cost of the delivery.
Location: Some couriers may charge higher or lower for deliveries in certain postcodes. This may be partly due to their availability of drivers and vehicles in specific areas.
Service type: Some couriers offer two types of service
Standard Service: Drivers can make multiple picks up and drop offs along their route, 120 mins SLA. Standard service tends to be cheaper than direct service and is well suited for ambient goods.
Direct Service: Drivers must go directly from the pickup to the drop off, 60 minute SLA. Direct service tends to be slightly more expensive, however, is well suited for hot food delivery.
Waiting Time: A driver waiting at the pickup or drop off location may incur charges. Waiting time charges vary by courier.
Cancellation Charges: Once a driver has been assigned to fulfil an order, a cancellation fee will be charged if the delivery is canceled. Cancellation charges will also vary from one courier to another.
