RFT Express Bulk Parcel
RFT Express the Yorkshire Parcel
Couriers are revolutionising the bulk parcel delivery.
RFT Express Parcels can save you up to 70% on
the cost of your bulk Parcel Deliveries,
and you don't even need to move from your current parcel carrier.Your
parcels are delivered the Same Day or next Day, depending on collection
time. There is no extra charge for Same day or
Next Day Delivery. Parcels limited to a total mass of
7 cubic metres, or 1 metric tonne.
How does RFT Express
Parcels Differ from other companies?
RFT Express have
revolutionized the Next Day parcel delivery, by simplifying it. We simply
collect all your parcels for one destination, load them on to one van,
and then deliver on the same van with the same driver. RFT Express Parcels
charge a flat mileage fee, and occasionally a surcharge for some deliveries.[We
regularly deliver 100 + parcels for a client to the 13th floor of a
building. The restrictions imposed on us at this building is a maximum
of 10 boxes in a lift at any time.]
This system works to your benefit
if you are sending multiple parcels to one address. Depending on the
mileage, you can save with a delivery of 10 parcels. And your load is
insured for up to £20,000 at no extra cost
What System do Other
Parcel Carriers Use?
One of your carriers will call
every day at a pre-arranged time to collect your parcels.[Most companies
use several carriers to take advantage of different rates for different
size parcels, or for later collection times.] These are loaded on a
van with every other companies parcels who are on the same van run,
then taken to a local depot. They are then unloaded, scanned, sorted
and put in cages for different area deliveries, and for different carriers.[Larger
companies use computerised conveyor systems]
At this point
one of four things happen to your parcels.
All your parcels are collected
by a 44 tonne artic which will collect from several depots and deliver
to a central hub. Most of these are around the Birmingham area.
All your parcels are sent
to a regional warehouse, reloaded onto a larger vehicle for onward
transmition to a central hub.
Your parcels are split
up, and sent by either of the above, with some sent by a 'competitors'
distribution network [Just as you use different carriers, so the
carriers will use the cheapest method of delivering your parcels.]
If your carrier is running
at over capacity, they will call us to deliver the excess to the
central hub.[Most carriers are allocated a certain amount of space
on the night trunk to the central hub.]
Once at the hub your parcels are unloaded, resorted,
and loaded on to the artic going to the nearest warehouse or depot,
then the reverse system starts. When you consider that each central
hub sorts several 100,000 parcels in a few hours, you can understand
the pressures involved, add to this the need to sort and store in different
parts of the hubs, parcels for 2 day, 3 day and 5 day delivery, you
can understand how sometimes your parcels go astray or are damaged.
The standard insurance on your parcels is usually £1.50 per kilo,
with a limit of the amount you have been charged for that delivery.
Most carriers offer an enhanced insurance at a cost.
It would be unfair to quote individual
company rates and discounts, so we have used an average of £12.00
per parcel for these comparisons. You can easily check what you are
paying for similar deliveries. Bear in mind, allthough these are actual
deliveries, RFT Express charge by the mile, not by the number of parcels.
