How The Global Transport services can help you

A legal courier service provider is responsible for many things, such as making sure their legal couriers maintain confidentiality, have experience, know proper packaging, maintain pick-up and delivery times, and do it all in a cost-effective manner for their clients. Their couriers expected duties also range from document retrieval to court filings to staging of records.

How they do it

Confidentiality:

When hiring your legal courier service, you should expect the courier service to have trained their legal messengers to keep confidentiality at all times. Documents should never be tampered with or viewed by a trustworthy legal messenger service. The legal delivery drivers of The Global Transport are trained and familiar with the legal and justice systems and know the importance of keeping the confidentiality of your documents. Our legal couriers will maintain your privacy from pick up to drop off.

Experience:

A legal courier service is often tasked with delivering documents such as copies of divorce filings or lawsuits. In cases like these, it is important that the legal messenger has experience in the field and is equipt to handle adverse situations such as these. Therefore, all legal messengers of The Global Transport have experience ad training in dealing with adverse situations that may occur while delivering legal documents or packages.

Packaging:

A legal courier service will be familiar with the practices of the legal and justice systems and know the proper way to transport documents, such as utilizing tamper-proof bags and envelopes, using legal envelopes to prevent the bending or folding of legal documents, and more. As a result, our trained legal couriers safely package and transport your documents in a timely manner, giving you peace of mind.

Delivery speeds:

In the legal system, it is important for things to be delivered, documented, and filed to prevent any delays in a case. Legal courier services train their legal messengers to be familiar with their local courthouses, justice buildings, and the surrounding city. This allows the legal courier to quickly navigate the fastest route from pickup to delivery, ensuring the parcel is taken care of before it can cause any delays. At The Global Transport, our legal messengers are all natives of their cities and can deliver your parcel quickly and securely.

Cost:

When it comes to cost, a legal messenger can help you save money. The cost of hiring a legal courier versus sending a staff member or hiring an internal messenger is significantly different. It is far cheaper to hire a legal messenger service than to hire someone to constantly be on standby and charge you or pull another staff member from their regular duties. To get an accurate cost of legal courier service, you will want to call them or go online.

What they do:

Court filing:

It is expected that a legal courier service has trained their legal messenger to file any and all legal documents with the clerk of courts. The legal messenger should know where all of their local clerk of courts is and be able to file a document with them within 60 minutes or less. Our team of legal couriers is familiar with local, municipal, state, and federal courts and can have your document filed and delivered as quickly as possible while maintaining your privacy.

Document Retrieval:

An essential task that every legal courier should be trained to be able to do is retrieve a document. However, document retrieval could take a great amount of time to do, having to wait for the court to find the documents in the archives. Therefore, legal couriers should know precisely where to go for document retrieval and get all the required information to do so. At The Global Transport, our legal messengers are trained to handle document retrievals as quickly and securely as possible, giving our clients piece of mind that everything will be handled promptly and properly.

Court Staging of Record:

A regular service a legal courier can be expected to provide is court staging of records. An excellent legal courier should be able to pick up documents, boxes, exhibits, etc., from anywhere, including hotels, bring them to court and set up, and return them after court. Our legal couriers are experienced with court staging of records and ensure all documents will be picked up, transported, and dropped off, all in a secure and timely manner.

What is the Difference Between a Courier, Carrier, and Post?

Carrier Delivery Service

What types of Carriers are there?

Common Carrier: Transports goods between companies or people and has a license from a regulatory authority, allowing them to work for multiple shippers in one day.

Contract Carrier: Provides transport services for only one shipper long term. This can include a single person with their own minivan or a large-scale company with trucks, boats, trains, and planes.

What they ship:

Carriers primarily only ship larger packages or quantities of packages as a whole. This means a typical delivery weight of over 100 pounds to one ton. Carriers can also ship some types of hazardous materials to special locations requiring specific clearances, such as USCIS or immigration.

How do they ship it?

Shipping is done by having multiple stops for pick up for deliveries from multiple locations of individuals and residences and multiple stops for drop off for different businesses and individuals. Shipping is usually completed using large trucks and box trucks.

Cost

The cost of shipping with a carrier is the cheapest option as the delivery drivers are not required to have any training or certifications for their deliveries. They are also able to plan routes for all pickups and deliveries, saving on mileage and gas.

Speed/ efficiency

Having multiple stops for pick up and delivery hinders those who are on a time crunch for a package. Having to send a package through a warehouse, sorting, and going between multiple locations and trucks can also add to the time delay of a pickup and delivery of a package.

Safety

Multiple packages being placed on a truck and transferred between multiple locations and delivery vehicles increases the risk of the package being lost or damaged during transport.

Post Delivery Service

What they ship:

Post delivery primarily only ships letters, documents, and small parcels. The weight is typically under 10 pounds or under specific size restrictions. There are also many restrictions on what can be shipped, such as amounts of fluid, type of substance, etc.

How do they ship it:

Typically, a post-delivery service will deliver in a small sedan, van, or postal truck. These vehicles are not typically equipped with GPS systems and rely on the driver’s personal device for route changes.

Cost:

The shipping cost varies depending on when you are shipping an item, how large the item is, how much it weighs, and how fast you want it to arrive. The costs are all typically high since they are monopolized nationwide.

Speed/ efficiency

If you are looking for speed, the fastest a postal service offers is overnight, which has proven to be a one to two day service over time. The post-delivery service also offers 2-3 day shipping and is typically delivered later than promised. The growing trend of late deliveries has only persisted and gotten worse over the years.

Safety

Packages transported by postal services are typically handled by regular people with no prior experience or training and do not go through training or certification courses. During transportation, packages are also typically set in the vehicle and not secured and are prone to sliding around and having other deliveries damage them or get lost being jumbled together.
