Unlike a standard courier service which relies on speed and accuracy to get products delivered quickly and efficiently, a security courier service specialises in moving products or goods which are either high value, secret, or are in need of en-route protection. This can include items such as Important documents or high value assets such as artwork, jewellery, and cash. In fact any item or product that wouldn’t be feasible to send by any other means might be sent via a security courier service instead.
Not just goods
That said a security courier service mightn’t always deal solely in high value or important items or goods, instead they can also deal with the safe transport of VIP’s from one place to another. This might include government officials, heads of state, celebrities, or those in charge of industry. In fact you could say anything or indeed anyone that requires en-route security might warrant the services of a high level security courier.
So how do security courier services operate?
Similarly to standard courier services such as UPS or DHL, a security courier will be responsible for the safe and timely delivery of the said package, item or person/s. However aside from timely and safe arrival the responsibility of the security courier (as the name suggests) is the security of those items along the route. Being valuable and/or attractive they need specialist care and attention and this is where security courier services come into their own. First and foremost the couriers are security trained so they’re either professional security guards or have gone through extensive training. Secondly they will take far more interest in how they’re going to get from point A to point B in the safest less conspicuous way, without bringing any unwanted attention to themselves or their cargo. This includes aspects such as route planning, stopping procedures, communications, vigilance etc.
The nature of the job may require them to travel both long and short distances on a variety of transport including shipping, aircraft, and vehicles and the job is only completed once the items, goods, or people are delivered safely and securely.
