Help with Parcel Shipping

What is the difference between a parcel and a package?

Technically speaking, a package is something that is packed (so for example; a parcel, a box, etc.), whereas a parcel is a package wrapped for shipment. But in all honesty, the names essentially mean the same thing and can be used interchangeably with no harm done. Call it what you will, we’re going to call it parcel!

Is a parcel a letter or a package?

It’s a package. When we say parcel, we also mean package. A letter would have to be wrapped or packed to be considered a parcel.

What is parcel delivery?

Parcel delivery is the delivery of parcels. Imagine that! It’s a service that’s provided by most postal systems, private package delivery services, and less than truckload carriers (hint hint, that’s us).

What are the benefits of parcel shipping?

Small packages mean more attentive care in making sure each package arrives at its destination. Because of the number of checkpoints a small package must pass, it’s easier to detect if it’s lost or off track. Parcels are also easy to reassign to a different truck or carrier, which allows for competitive discounted rates.
