What are the Differences Between Cargo and Courier?

When you have a product that you need to deliver to another address, cargo and courier are the most prominent among the several ways you can choose. Cargo and courier perform the task of delivering a product to the address it needs to reach. Before moving on to the features that distinguish the two, let's examine what they mean, why they are preferred and how they deliver.

What is Cargo?

Cargo is the name given to the companies that carry out the transportation as well as the products to be transported. Cargo transportation takes place in bulk, with more than one product. These products can be goods, equipment, materials and similar products. The way the products are delivered to the delivery address may differ depending on the place where the product comes from.

Cargo transports are used by land, air and sea. The transportation service fee varies according to the city/distance or the size and weight of the product to be transported.

What is Courier?

Courier is a very common transportation method, especially in big cities. They are used to deliver small items such as packages and documents. The fact that moto couriers are especially fast provides great benefits for individuals who want to deliver their packages during the day, as well as for companies that need to deliver their documents elsewhere. In addition to same day delivery by courier, international deliveries are also available. Moto couriers are the way used by sites and Instagram pages that promise same-day delivery on the Internet. Motorcycle couriers can make their deliveries in a short time without being stuck with the traffic density.

What are the Differences Between Cargo and Courier?

  • You can find out which one is more suitable for the product to be delivered by examining the differences.
  • Products to be delivered by courier are lighter than cargo. When using a courier, it is faster and safer to choose a courier for small-sized products with a weight in the range of 0-30 kg. Cargo can carry goods of many sizes.
  • Cargo companies use road, air ,sea and rail transport alternatives to transport their goods, while couriers use pedestrians, motorcycles, bicycles or alternatives to help them avoid traffic jams.
  • While the courier companies guarantee that the product to be delivered will reach the delivery address as soon as possible, the shipping processes take longer. Delivery time of a product by courier can be less than 24 hours, maximum 2 days. However, delivery time by courier may take from 3-4 days to 1-2 weeks depending on the density.
  • When using motorcycle couriers, the courier fee may be more expensive than the cargo, as the delivery time is shorter. In cases where the product is heavy, the shipping fee may be more expensive.
  • Since the products are transported in bulk, the product may be worn out or crushed. Since the couriers carry the products in small quantities or individually, the safety of the product is provided more easily.

To summarize the differences between cargo and courier, couriers are mostly used for the delivery of light, small packages, documents or important products that need to be delivered to another address in a short time; cargoes are used to transport large, heavy products in bulk over long distances.
