Delivery Times and Services

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

For deliveries in Georgia, Courier Connection has several delivery time options available. The best option for a company with infrequent deliveries is one of the demand courier services. There are four different kinds of demand courier services available. For businesses that need frequent deliveries, however, the best option is probably going to be the scheduled delivery service. Packages are commonly delivered in a mere three to four hours. With the scheduled delivery service, the customer gets to decide the time and the date of delivery. 

The normal delivery service ensures that packages are delivered within two hours of order placement. For those who need even faster delivery, however, 1.5 service can be required. This, as the name suggests, provides packages delivered within 1.5 hours. If an hour and a half is still too slow for your courier needs, there is also a rush delivery service available. This service will deliver the customer’s package within the hour. The quickest option available is direct service. This service is for those who have absolutely no time to waste. Direct delivery service is when the package is picked up 20 minutes after order placement. The package is then delivered right away. 

For deliveries that are not local, Courier Connection has two more options. These options include: Courier Connection’s NFO service and a FedEx pickup and delivery option as well. The FedEx option is not available on the weekends. On weekdays it is available up until 8:30 at night. If you chose this option, Courier Connection will bring your package to the airport for you. If you chose the NFO service, however, Courier Connection will place your package on the soonest departing flight. With this option, delivery is usually made in 2-4 hours.

Capital Express Delivers Flu Vaccines

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Capital Express continues to be amongst the leading courier service providers in the country.  Every year, the medical industry relies on large, experienced, regional couriers and medical delivery companies to facilitate the distribution of flu vaccine throughout the country once that year’s vaccine has been manufactured. Last year however, new attention was drawn to distribution as people formed lines to wait for their H1N1 vaccine.
 
H1N1 is known as the swine flu, and was proven to be approaching pandemic proportions. This caused a huge spike in demand for the new vaccine that protects against this particular flu strain. There were shortages in many areas; making the transportation of the vaccine to clinics and vaccination locations critically important.
 
That is where Capital Express comes in. As an experienced medical delivery company, we have for years helped in making sure that all flu vaccines are accurately and timely delivered to inoculation destinations.  We are working 24/7/365 to ensure that all the inoculation locations are going to receive their flu Vaccine as prescribed.
 
As of this writing, Capital Express has delivered approximately 4,235 shipments consisting of over 50,820 viles of H1N1, influenza and pneumonia vaccines 11 states. We are working tirelessly to continue distributing the vaccine as fast as it can be manufactured and received in our 7 central US distribution centers. The work of medical couriers like this helps to make sure that there is a minimal gap from when the vaccine is made to when it can actually be administered to a patient. This is making the services of Capital Express an important link in the critical process of trying to slow the spread of illnesses across the country.

Patient care above all else!
Capital Express, Inc.
Driving for Your Success…and Your Health!
