What is ‘Door to Door Cargo Delivery Service’?
From the word ‘Door-to-Door’, it simply denotes the physical movement of goods from the point of pickup to end-user. As defined by UPS, the meaning also transcends to the name of the service provided, for example, “door-to-door service” or “door-to-door cargo delivery service”.
Unfortunately, the definition of this term can be very confusing. The confusion takes a stance from the word ‘door-to-door’ itself. It is simple to conclude that Door-to-Door Service is a service rendered to ‘your doorpost’. And at the same time difficult when we say Door-to-Door service is referred to as ‘from shipping location to ‘your warehouse'”
While some believe that “Door-to-Door services” most usually stopped at the warehouse and not necessarily at the customers’ doorpost or home, most others see it from a different perspective.
But we understand that position of GlobalForwarding…, and maybe others, on what Door-to-Door may imply.

Definition of Term from Two Different Views
According to GlobalForwarding, “…one of the biggest problems is that companies do not always see that door delivery means to the door of the warehouse of course. They think that door can mean to their customer’s door which can be true only on a drop-ship or direct ship, but they do not understand it to be the door.”
GlobalForwarding believes that Door to Door delivery means that the freight forwarding company will pick up the shipping container from your warehouse and bring it to the port, gate it in and file the necessary paperwork and retrieve it on the other side to be brought to your consignee’s warehouse.”
On the other hand, UPS defines door to door service as “The physical movement of goods from the point of pickup to end-user. This may also be the name of a service provided, for example, “door to door service.”
This is apparently where we draw our definition having taken into consideration several factors. The current trend seems to have shifted to a meaning carved from the words itself. But this time, we deal with Cargo delivery to your doorpost, or warehouse as the case may be.
