If your business offers goods and operates online, you may be considering offering delivery services, too. 

A Delivery Service Agreement is for businesses that carry out logistics and delivery services, and will both protect and strengthen your business deals. 

For example, if you are a delivery business that picks up books from a book store retailer and delivers them to customers or to other businesses, you’ll want to ensure you won’t be held responsible for damaged goods, and that you’ll receive timely payment for your work. 

If you are a customer, a Delivery Service Agreement will safeguard your deliveries, ensuring you are supplied correctly and on time. For example, if you are a florist, you’d need to ensure you receive certain flowers by a certain date for big events such as weddings. A Delivery Service Agreement would help you here, as you’d be able to draft in clauses that give you the option of using another delivery service if there are delays — minimising harm to your day-to-day business activities. 

What Is Included In A Delivery Service Agreement? How Do I Use It?

Our lawyers draft every Delivery Service Agreement differently, mainly depending on whether you are offering the delivery service or are the customer. They also include customised clauses regarding payment, liability, timeframes, termination, and how to deal with disputes. 

Deliver Service Agreements are accompanied by a job order form, so that you can reuse your agreement for each customer.
