I coming up against city sprint more and more of late. Some of my clients have asked if I could offer a similar service such as sameday before 17.00 to help reduce their costs. I have explained that the service is different to a normal dedicated service and that their freight would be co loaded. The response I am getting is, if their deliveries are a not so urgent just need to be there that day they are looking at keeping there cost down. I understand everything is about price as well as service these days. I have a lot going into London daily so happy to do this going into London and collections coming out.
What I would like to know is how you all would feel about taking a backload at possibly not such a great rate? Whilst at the same time committing to it being delivered before 17.00? This would also depend on it being possible to be done of course.
Do any of you currently offer this service if so how do you find it?
