For our South Florida courier service team, the day starts early and our drivers are out and about around 6:30am. Throughout the day, deliveries are placed by a wide range of clients in a variety of industries but it’s almost always a guarantee that we’ll have runs for our law offices, printing companies, aviation service and medical device clients.

Our South Florida City Manager, Maria De La Salas says, “South Florida, especially Miami, is known for it’s crazy traffic. The last thing my clients want is to sit in traffic making deliveries when they have urgent business needs to attend to. Outsourcing their same-day deliveries to Dropoff gives them hours back in their busy days. That’s my favorite part of my job - making my clients’ days a little easier.”

Late morning, our catering deliveries start rolling in. Restaurant and catering delivery is a rapidly growing segment for our South Florida team, with clients including Simple Cater, Pei Wei, and Qzina Specialty Foods.

Just like our other markets, operating a South Florida courier service comes with its own set of challenges. The biggest of which is navigating long distance same-day deliveries between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, but this also provides opportunity to prove ourselves to our new clients.

“Long distance runs are common in South Florida,” says Maria. “Our Agents are trained to deliver and go the extra mile to do so. So when challenges like weather, traffic, and short delivery time windows are at play, they know just how to deal with the situation at hand.”  

For Maria and our South Florida team, growing and improving our services to help our clients is always top of mind.

“When I talk to a client and hear about how Dropoff was able to solve a challenge in their day or to help them become more profitable, it puts a smile on my face. Our clients are constantly referring us to everyone they know, and to me a referral is the best compliment a customer can give.”
