In the wake of the recent outbreak of COVID-19, otherwise known as coronavirus, it can feel like the entire world has been turned on its head. Businesses are shutting down temporarily or moving to strictly digital operations as much as possible, with maybe a skeleton crew to manage in-office operations. In short, there is a lot of chaos happening and few good guidelines for businesses to follow in order to handle it all — other than staying home and avoiding contact with others as much as possible. 

Here in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area, we haven’t been hit as hard as larger metropolitan areas, like New York City — at least, not yet. But in order to stave off the worst of the approaching pandemic, the more we need to do upfront to take precautionary measures. Social distancing is the word of the hour, but it can mean some major hurdles to cross in order to keep your business operating smoothly. The On Demand Courier team is here to help where we can. Our local team provides scheduled and same-day delivery service, which you can use to keep your business operational without breaking social distancing rules. Here’s how it works: 

 

Scheduling Local Delivery Service

In this day and age, it’s amazing how much business can be conducted virtually. Phone calls and emails transmit information quickly, spreadsheets can be organized and shared online, and video chatting platforms give you the ability to hold team meetings without leaving home. It’s pretty amazing to think about just how much work we can do while staying safely at home and doing our part to cut down on spreading the coronavirus. 

At the same time, though, not everything can be digitized and done online. Plenty of industries rely on physical work to operate. Whether that means rotating shifts more carefully or working with a skeleton crew, there are ways to keep your employees safe while also keeping your business operational. If you need help keeping your business supplied, or transmitting goods safely, our local courier team can help. We are happy to pick up goods from anywhere across the greater Phoenix-Scottsdale area and deliver them for you. That could mean couriering legal documents to your clients or another firm, or delivering necessary parts for your manufacturing company. We even offer last-mile delivery so you can get shipped goods quickly to and from your business without worrying about visiting a central shipping hub. 

Scheduled Deliveries

If you know you have shipments to deliver on specific dates, even on a recurring schedule, let our team handle that for you. We’re happy to arrange scheduled delivery service based on the dates or timing you need. Whether you need scheduled deliveries on an ongoing basis, or just during the coronavirus outbreak, our courier team can work with your scheduling needs. 

Same-Day Delivery Service

Need goods quickly? We offer 1-hour, 2-hour, 4-hour, and same-day “economy” service to make sure your delivery arrives when you need it, and within your budget. Our state-of-the-art dispatching software and online ordering/tracking options make it easy to see the progress of your goods without needing to break 

 

Time-Sensitive/Biological Materials Delivery

Some goods really can’t wait for an unspecified delivery window. If you have time-sensitive documents, perishable foods, or other items that need to be picked up and delivered quickly, call us to discuss options. Our courier team is even trained to safely and appropriately handle biological materials like blood or other lab samples that need quick, experienced transportation. 

In these unprecedented times, On Demand Courier is here to help you keep your business running smoothly. Connect with us to discuss your delivery needs anywhere across the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.
