Sometime; Uncle8888 read in the cyber world when someone emphasizes FREE delivery service when he or she bought something online or order from the shop and have the order delivered FOC to his or her home. They are so happy to emphasize FREE delivery service when sharing in the cyber world. Naive. Got free delivery service meh? Many of these home deliveries are done by free lance delivery agents/couriers. Do you think these people are doing it for charity? Delivery fees are charged on per trip basis and then add on surcharge based on timing; location zoning e.g. CBD, Tuas, Bukit Timah, etc; tier surcharge based on weight (3 kg, 5 Kg, 8 Kg, 10 Kg, 15 Kg, 20 Kg, 25 Kg, etc ANDsize (L+H+W) 60 cm, 90 cm, 120 cm. 150 cm. etc Why weight AND size? It is fair charging scheme. So that light but large item will cost more in delivery fee. Got FREE delivery meh?
