Courier service are something we take for granted every single day. With Amazon Prime able to handle shipping boxes to our doorstep in under 48 hours, we seem to just assume that quick delivery is the way things have always been. But have you ever stopped to consider the history of courier services? Where did this system originate, and how did it evolve into the massive economy it is today? In this article, well go over the unique and fanciful history of how the human race gets items from Point A to Point B.
Courier services have evolved from carrier pigeons and horseback mailmen to air freight shipping and drone monitored delivery.
Early Courier Services: A Trusted Delivery Person
Before the middle of the 19th century, you’d simply pay a courier to take your package to its destination. The courier would drop it off in a central location for the recipient to pick up and then be on his way.
Basically, you had to hope you’d come across someone who was making the journey to wherever your mail needed to go.
Mail was not as much of a necessity the further back in time you go. People did not spread out as much and usually did not have business or family in faraway places. You normally wouldn’t need to communicate with someone who was that far out of your home range.
