Your Alternative to FedEx SameDay

Dropoff offers a more flexible service at a lower price


Are you looking for an alternative to FedEx SameDay? It might not feel like it when you are up against a deadline and you need to get your package to the other side of town in a hurry, but you do have choices when it comes to local delivery services. From local courier companies to well-known entities like FedEx SameDay, choosing the right service to fit your needs is important. There are several reasons why Dropoff is able to provide a more flexible and reliable service for a lower price.



Local Delivery is what we do. Period.

The “About” page on FedEx’s website describes their business this way: “Customers count on our diverse portfolio of transportation, e-commerce, and business solutions … Our portfolio of solutions ... can tackle any challenge in the world of global commerce.”  Any challenge in the world of global commerce? That’s quite the task to take on. Dropoff simply gets your items where they need to go, when they need to get there -- and we keep you up to speed on what’s happening every step of the way. That’s our sole focus and our promise to you. We’ll leave the rest of the challenges of global commerce to FedEx.

Beautifully Simple Infrastructure

FedEx is an enormous logistics operation. They are optimized to move packages across the country through multiple hubs, automated systems, and on aircraft. They are really good at doing that. But all of the infrastructure and people necessary to support that is expensive.  All we need to perform our service is our proprietary technology and our team. With Dropoff, that’s all you pay for. The cost of the incredibly complex and expensive infrastructure is spread across all of FedEx’s services, making it impossible for them to keep costs as low as we can.

The Dropoff Experience

We’re technology experts who love the sweet spot where software meets service. We built our technology to make it easy to connect you with a professional, fully screened, and friendly courier who will deliver your package quickly and safely. Your package is important, so we help you keep tabs on exactly where it is in its journey via our real-time live map tracking. We provide up-to-the-minute ETAs, and we’ll notify you immediately when your package is secure in your recipient’s hands.

Service with a Passion

You’ve worked hard to perfect your brand and you deserve the best same-day delivery provider to represent it. Here at Dropoff, our customers are primarily businesses and it’s our job to professionally and promptly deliver their items. Our drivers are friendly, professional, and have superior customer service skills. What’s more? You have the opportunity to provide feedback on your Dropoff experience with every single delivery. This is how we ensure that our team is meeting our exceptionally high standards.

Security & Reliability

Working with a variety of businesses means that deliveries require different levels of security. Unlike Fedex SameDay, our drivers are all HIPAA-compliant, as well as fully insured and background-checked, so that whatever your needs are, Dropoff is able to accommodate.

Feature-Rich API

We have built a scalable and feature-rich API with you in mind. This means you can offer your customers instant gratification with a same-day delivery option (with specific time range selections) at checkout. On the other hand, Fedex averages around 3.4 million deliveries per day, making it difficult to offer specific delivery window selections to their customers.

Fleet Replacement

Rather than maintaining their own in-house delivery fleet, many businesses turn to Dropoff. Our pricing structure allows you to save money and hassle by outsourcing your deliveries to us.

Flexible Delivery Options

Many customers choose Dropoff as an alternative to FedEx SameDay due to our more flexible delivery options. With Dropoff, you can choose between:

ASAP:  Dropoffs will be completed in the quickest manner possible, typically within 1 hour depending on distance and time of day.
2-Hour:  Dropoffs will be completed within 2 hours from pickup. 2-Hour service is available when scheduled by 4:00pm on the day of delivery.
4-Hour:  Dropoffs will be completed within 4 hours of pickup.  4-Hour service is available when scheduled by 2:00pm on the day of delivery.  

We even offer after-hour and weekend service (Saturday and Sunday), ensuring that your Dropoff will get where it needs to go, when it needs to get there, no matter what the time or day.

What sets us apart from FedEx SameDay is that our entire business is built on the simple premise that there should be an easy, inexpensive way for you to get anything from a catering order to a confidential document to a medical device, exactly where it needs to be in the cities we serve. If you are looking for an option other than FedEx SameDay for local delivery, you’ve found it.
