Welcome to the Ghost Courier website. This site is for the many men and women who work as couriers all over the world.
Many couriers work for large companies known to all.
But many others work as Contract Couriers, simple operations that take important things to important places. Some of these operations are as small as single person operations.
Medical Couriers take specimens, or organs to labs and hospitals. The items can’t wait for overnight delivery, they have to be there within hours.
Document Couriers make sure that deeds or other legal documents get to their destination. In large cities, these couriers can be Cycle Couriers using Bicycles or Motorcycles to get the documents to their destination.
Casual Couriers and Air Couriers use airlines and other public transit to deliver their packages.
Couriers perform a job that goes back to the beginnings of human history. Messages and packages were delivered by runners and horsemen. Some of the first historical mentions of couriers refer to around 400BC where they were used by the Persian prince Cyrus the Younger.
The most famous courier is Philippides, who although you may not know his name, we all know his story. Philippides ran 26.1 miles from Marathon to Athens to bring the news of the Greek victory over the Persians in 490 BC. So each of us who runs a Marathon pays tribute to one of history’s original Couriers.
Why Ghost Courier? Because although you see the big brown trucks, or the big red, white and blue trucks, most people never see the Contract Couriers who move like Ghosts among the infrastructure, delivering the important packages to their destinations. The government couriers who claim to deliver during “rain, sleet, snow, and gloom of night” often don’t deliver during those conditions, while Contract Couriers must get their cargo to its destination no mater what.
This site is dedicated to helping Contract Couriers, we hope to be providing tips, tricks, and product reviews to increase the productivity and reliability of Courier’s services.
