Courier - definition(s)

Courier - Expedited Nationwide Service for delivery of data packages and documents on a next day (or two day) delivery schedule. Both Federal Express and United Parcel Service maintain accessible computerized status information from pickup to delivery on every shipment. Roadway Express offers a similar service, for shorter hauls, via trucks.

The USPS competitive product, Express Mail, is at lower cost, but entails delivery to the Post Office, and, as yet, cannot provide status or tracing information. Lower cost Parcel Post has no means to trace a package.
