here are many reasons to use a professional courier.

Courier companies offer the opportunity to make sure that time sensitive documents and important parcels reach their destinations on time as well as in the same condition in which they left. A courier offers peace of mind and will take your shipment, large or small, and ship it to wherever it needs to go, in the most efficient, safest, and most budget conscious manner.

service provided with a personal touch,” Marnie Dreyer, General Manager at Courierit told a South Africa Magazine researcher recently. The firm is renowned for providing a “first class service” to each and every customer and manages deliveries to over 2000 destinations and towns across the country. “We pride ourselves on offering a personalised courier service to anyone and everyone who wants a package delivered quickly and safely,” the company says on its website, “Courierit successfully merges the physical and virtual aspects of logistics in order to provide its customers with a superior seamless solution to the problems associated with the industry,” it continues.

EXTENSIVE OFFERING The Courierit Group specialises in international freight, warehousing and re-mail. In 2005, in response to demand from the local market, Freightit was formed and it has added a very strong string to the Courierit bow in that it is able to offer customers an import or export component. Freightit has been extremely successful with various international contracts through its ethos of “personalised relationships and hand to hand logistics solutions”, the company says. “Through a partnership with Warehouseit we are

able to offer a warehousing facility with pick/pack abilities, enabling our clients to order and despatch cargo without even lifting a finger,” its website adds. “Opened in 2009, Remailit offers mailing solutions for a vast range of clientele who ship bulk international mail.” Courierit’s success is based on its ability to identify and understand its clients’ needs, fulfil and maintain service levels, and continuously adapt and develop systems to fulfil all requirements, “We have specific areas of strength,” the company says. “We work to high standards to ensure customers get a high quality service. “The strength of our company lies in our staff,” the company website adds. “We believe in the same, and spend one percent of our annual budget on training. We reward our staff, and in so doing, meet the ongoing needs of our customers.” Courierit’s goal is to make a difference in South Africa, and Africa as a whole,
