  • Crypto Currencies

    Popularity of Cryptocurrencies

    With the ever growing popularity of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Etherium, Binance Coin and Doge, the world is looking for new ways to invest and make quick money.  Returns from investing in crypto coins may deliver a return on investment in a short time, but the uncertainty of the market is any ones guess.  

    Cryptro Currency accepted by Same Day Couriers

    Same day delivery couriers are now accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of payment, looks like everyone wants a piece of the action.  The difficult part is for the courier service providers to account for such transactions.  At the moment payment is accepted and the accountimng work to be left to the accountants. 

    New Ideas for Crypto

    Pony Sameday have their own concept of a crypto currency:

    A crypto currency for drivers and couriers that get mined whilst the courier or driver is clocking up mileage.  Information of miles or km done would be received from Google maps or any other mapping software.  The idea is in its infancy at the moment but may come to fruition soon.

  • On Board Couriers Worldwide in Lockdown

    On Board Couriers During Lockdown

    During the lockdown period, the Pony Sameday team are receiving more and more calls for hand carry courier services using our specialist onboard couriers , the challenge the team are facing is that most routes are closed to commercial air traffic.  The OBC team are re-routing hand carry consignments and in some cases are sending couriers on a wild de-tour.  The team had a request for important cargo to be collected from Shanghai to be delivered to Los Angeles, the route taken was one OBC travelled from Shanghai to Hong Kong and then another OBC travelled from Hong Kong to Amsterdam and the final leg was completed by a third courier who was a US passport holder.

    It becomes even more challenging when the couriers need to be PCR negative tested, gone are the days when any available courier would be able to take the mission.  It's not just about visas and entry clearance during lockdown.

    Upon arrival into Los Angeles the onboard courier had self quarantine, so did the other two couriers.

    Quarantine

    Couriers have to self isolate when entering Hong Kong for 15 days in a government appointed hotel, this adds cost to the price of the job, but in these difficult times there is not much can be done other than to follow the rules of the land.  

    Flight Restrictions 

    Once flights and routings were not a problem, you would be certain to get your courier on the next flight out and usually on a direct flight, however now there are too many variables to consider in booking a flight for the hand carry courier.  Restrictions of flight and airport operations result in a mission becoming twice the length that it would take before the pandemic and costs to the customer have gone up 10 fold.

    On Board and Hand Carry Couriers Services, the Future

    We envisage that normality in the onboard and hand carry courier service industry will not be very soon, 2020 was a very low point and 2021 may see towards the end some restrictions lifted and routes opening up.  Hopefully 2022 will be the year that our onboard and hand carry couriers will resume travel to similar levels of before the COVID-19 pandemic.  It cannot be said for certain as new coronavirus variants are being discovered around the world.

  • Same Day Courier in Lockdown

     
    Lockdown Effects on Sae Day Couriers

    Same day courier and delivery firms have operated as normal through the national lockdowns, but have seen a decrease in traffic due to customer closures.  Companies in the automotive and manufacturing sectors that are major users of same day couriers have not ben using services during the pandemic, resulting in the same day courier companies having to lay off drivers serving regular contracts.

    Is it all doom and gloom

    There has been sectors of industry and business that have seen an increase in business, such as Covid-19 testing labs, PPE suppliers and food manufacturers.  In these industries there has been a boom in the use of same day couriers and for those companies wo have secured contacts are doing very well.

    Europe by Road

    During lockdown deliveries to and from Europe by same day courier have been effected largely due to quarantine restrictions and testing for drivers and couriers.  The Brexit situation is also not helping the movement of goods in and out of Europe.  With limited ferry crossings, restrictions on borders and extra paperwork for clearance, not to mention the extra cost involved.  The European delivery by road has seen couriers leaving this market and customers looking for alternative couriers, but are seeing huge rises in cost.

    On Board and hand carry couriers international

    The onboard and hand carry courier service, where a courier collects an item and takes the next flight out to global destinations has seen a death to its industry.  Since the lockdowns and travel restrictions OBC's (on board couriers) have had virtually no movement during the lockdown periods.  With airlines grounded there has become no way to complete such assignments or missions.  Even destinations that have flights are resulting in couriers to quarantine for up to 14 days at destination and on return.
