A Same Day Delivery Challenge – Facing some challenging deliveries is all part of the life of a same day courier. This is an example of one our courier Dave faced on the weekend.
The recent poor weather has caused some terrible floods in many parts of the country. It has caused some roads to flood, therefore, cutting off access to some rural communities for many vehicles.
Dave was making his delivery to one such rural community in Cumbria when he encountered this flooded road in front of him. It was no way passable for his courier van.
Ensuring fulfillment of urgent goods is all part of Dave’s job, and he thrives on challenges like this. He was not disheartened he knew how vital his delivery was, and he was going to ensure it got there. He waited patiently for other vehicles to come by. Fortunately, a good Samaritan driving a 4×4, listened to Dave’s plight and was happy to help.
Dave said, ‘It was an exciting ride as the water levels reached half-way up to the doors of the vehicle, but I just knew I had to get this parcel there.’
Thanks to Dave’s persistence and the help of a passer-by once again, we ensured another vital delivery was safe in hands of its receiver.
This same day delivery challenge is just one example of the many our couriers face during the course of a year. At Cal Sameday as a team, our people in the office and on the road work with total dedication ensuring urgent fulfilment is achieved.
