Benefits of using South African Courier Systems Hub and spoke
Many International Courier companies, have, over recent years, developed a system for moving large volumes of courier shipments to destinations all over the globe- this is called the hub & spoke system. Simply put, this involves sending the majority of shipments to one sorting hub, from where they are distributed to other, smaller delivery stations. There are cost savings to be made using this method, but it can also increase problems with misrouting of shipments at the sorting hub, and makes the whole operational system less flexible than the customer might like.
Point to Point
SA Courier Systems takes a very different approach- the point to point system Wherever possible, shipments are flown on the most direct flight we can use, into either our own offices, or an associate office. Because of our International partnerships, we are able to negotiate rates directly from the airlines that negate the cost savings gained by using the hub & spoke system, and the shipments are travelling though many less links in the chain than with other methods. What this means for you, the customer, is that you pay no more for increased efficiency & flexibility.
