How it WorksOur goal at One Hour Messengers is to make shipping simple, quick, effective, and informative.
We believe it should be simple to review all of your shipping options before deciding which is best for you. We also think you should easily be able to let your customer’s track, on-line, the items you are sending to them. And, if you are a high volume user of various express delivery services, we don’t think you should have to wade through a maze of carrier invoices or go to different web sites to order or track your shipments.
At One Hour Messengers, we make shipping simpler. By giving you access to your options on a single page, you can make the best choice to meet your time and pricing requirements each and every time. We’ll give you a single page for tracking your inbound and outbound shipments, regardless of when or where it was sent. And we will give you the ability to provide your customer a single link for tracking their inbound parcels, regardless of carrier.
