Package delivery is the delivery of shipping containers, parcels, or high value mail as single shipments. The service is provided by most postal systems, express mail, private package delivery services, and less than truckload shipping carriers. Motor freight services arose quickly with the advent of gasoline and diesel powered trucks. Scheduled airlines carried high valued and perishable goods from early on. Same-day delivery for local parcels has long been available by local courier. Rail and air transport made same-day delivery feasible over longer distances; for example, packages shipped in the early morning can be delivered.
