Same day delivery has become one of the most important principles for a lot of companies. Giving your customers amazing service and making them feel connected is something most consumers are expecting when buying products. It does not matter what type of business you have. Making sure clients can count on you and providing the fastest service will make you more appreciated than other businesses. Establishing a solid online presence and cultivating a positive reputation are crucial for your business to expand. Doing so can open up new opportunities, generate more leads and attract more customers. One of the major selling points from most businesses in Ireland is its same-day delivery.

Retail Delivery

Even though every kind of company can benefit from same-day delivery, there are two industries that profit majorly. One of the most obvious industries is the retail industry. Next day or same day delivery (1) has been popular in retail for a couple of years now. With many customers expecting there to be fast delivery options. A lot of big businesses rely on their own in store shipping methods. Some smaller companies still rely on distributors to do it for them. The price of the delivery can differ per company based on the amount that is being ordered. The type of solution selected can have a huge impact on how delivery operations will run – whether it is multi-drop deliveries, same-day deliveries, or something else entirely. Careful consideration must therefore be given to ensure you find the most suitable courier [1]. 

Flower Industry

One of the lesser-known industries that profit from same-day delivery is the flower industry, particularly around Valentine’s Day when it can get very busy. Months of preparation are needed before the holiday to ensure everything goes smoothly.. The flower delivery market is growing rapidly, not just due to Valentine’s Day. The flower industry is booming in general. Most flowers that have been sent for delivery in Ireland, come from other countries. The Netherlands is a major contributor to the flower industry in Ireland. Taking up a big part of the market. Besides The Netherlands, there are many other countries further away (even outside of the EU), that support Ireland’s flower industry. The preparation before Valentine’s day takes up a long time. Mostly starting many months before the actual day. It is important to make sure that the flowers remain intact until they arrive at their final destination. Through cold chain delivery (the process of keeping products cold in order to make them stay fresh) flowers can easily be shipped from warmer countries to colder ones. The process is still difficult because you need to make sure the temperature is always even, in order to deliver good quality flowers. Making sure your logistics are in order is key for flower deliveries. Mistakes can easily disrupt the quality of the flowers. Another thing to keep in mind is the current weather of the countries to which the flowers are being shipped. February is a month in which the weather can quickly change. The temperatures can get to the point of freezing or it can get bright and sunny. The delivery company needs to keep this in mind during the delivery process. The calculation of inventory also makes it difficult for delivery companies. The inventory is always based on an estimated guess from florists. Having too little would lower customer satisfaction. Having too much however, would eventually result in loss of inventory. It is important to have done thorough research. Looking at the sale numbers of previous years. How much are the competitors selling? All of this can make the process easier and result in better outcomes.

What is also important, is to make sure you have the right kind of flowers in stock. With Valentine’s day you obviously want to have a big assortment of roses. However, since February for many people means that it is the beginning of spring, typical spring flowers are also wanted a lot. Think of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. Besides just flowers, maybe it is also smart to sell cards. Especially during Valentine’s day, most people want to buy flowers with a little card.

Healthcare Delivery

The next industry seems less likely because it is not an industry that most consumers get into contact with. However, it is definitely a very important industry. The healthcare industry does not transport as much as the retail industry does but the products that it transports are most often important ones. Next day delivery can be crucial in some cases. Quick delivery services are essential in the medical industry, ranging from pharmacies to research facilities and factories. Same-day couriers provide the speed and reliability needed to ensure vital medications and supplies.
