Your Same-Day Delivery Alternative to UPS Express Critical

 Dropoff is your easy-to-use, cost-effective solution 

 

Looking for an alternative to UPS for your local, same-day delivery needs? When it comes to these kinds of deliveries, you have options. Whether you care about live-map tracking your package, having flexible delivery options or working with a customer service-focused team, choosing the right delivery option for your needs is important. Dropoff offers a fast, dependable, and professional solution that won’t break the bank.

Our Sole Focus is Local Delivery

UPS’ services include domestic shipping, international shipping, trucking and air freight, retail and business services, customs brokerage, finance and international trade services and more.  If all of these choices overwhelm you, you’re not alone. While your company may benefit from one or more of UPS’s solutions, filtering through all of them to find the one best suited to your needs can be a significant undertaking. With Dropoff, get peace of mind knowing that your same-day deliveries are as important to us as they are to you, because that’s all we do.

Ensuring that UPS’ huge logistics operation runs smoothly, protocols are in place. When shipping through UPS, your packages don’t go directly from point A to B. They go from the pickup location, to the sorting warehouse, and finally to their destination. With Dropoff, cut out the middle step for the most efficient delivery possible.

Pricing Made Easy

A result of UPS’s many services is their complicated pricing structure. Different variables such as service mix (amount of time a package spends by ground, air, etc.), distance, weight, dimensions, administrative and operations costs, whether the destination is residential or remote, supplies, packaging, and the contents themselves are all taken into account when calculating shipping costs. This pricing structure changes frequently, often going unnoticed by customers because of its complexity. In fact, their pricing has changed changed 7 times in the last 18 months!

Since UPS has to fit as many packages into their vehicles and planes as possible, delivering large or bulky items comes at a premium. Announced recently, if the longest side of your package is 48” or more, UPS will charge you an additional $10.50 handling fee. Dropoff doesn’t charge extra based on length of package. With Dropoff, your delivery cost is based on the distance your package needs to go, the speed at which it needs to get there and the time it needs to arrive. It’s that simple.

Service with a Passion

Dropoff’s goal to provide you with an exceptional same-day delivery solution. We take the same care in delivering your items that you would. While UPS is focused on navigating its global logistics operations, we’re able to provide you with focused service.

Security and Reliability

Since we work with healthcare companies, law firms, and other businesses that require sensitive delivery protocol, Dropoff Agents are all HIPAA compliant. Our Agents are also background-checked, insured, and Dropoff is bonded.

Feature Rich API

With Dropoff, you can offer your customers same-day delivery directly from your e-commerce site or retail POS. Let your customers choose from 4-hour, 2-hour, or ASAP delivery windows. UPS can’t offer all these convenient time slots to customers without charging significant fees.

Flexible Delivery Options

In addition to multiple time options, Dropoff operates after hours and on weekends, including Sunday. UPS offers little flexibility when it comes to delivery windows and doesn’t deliver packages on Sundays.

What sets us apart from UPS is our focus on same-day delivery. When you need your package taken across town, trust your deliveries to Dropoff. We will get it where is needs to go, when it needs to get there- simply and reliably.
