Our couriers have been specifically trained to handle the problems inherent in urgent fashion and VIP-oriented logistics.
How We Work
Worldnet couriers or personnel personally chaperone your shipment over its entire journey. There are no times when a shipment is unaccompanied except when it has been lodged as checked passenger baggage, and even then it is meticulously tracked by both the courier and Worldnet until it’s back in the courier’s custody at baggage claim. Every OBC shipment is its own individual project and has dedicated personnel monitoring it 24/7.
A customized Statement of Work (SoW) and timeline detailing your shipment’s required journey is circulated and referred to internally. The SoW includes and requires a minimum of fifteen specific communication milestones from the courier as a shipment is successfully navigating its journey, and a minimum of thirteen potential and specific communication events for typical problem situations if they occur.
Couriers are continuously and personally given troubleshooting instructions for typical and atypical potential delays including missing baggage, regulatory or Customs issues, traffic, receiver issues, and many other situations.

Our Trusted Couriers
Worldnet maintains a growing roster of vetted couriers in a multiplicity of origin cities globally. This enables the fastest possible response time when required. Couriers carry their passports on their person in advance of being awarded an individual assignment on behalf of Worldnet.
Each potential courier is interviewed a minimum of two times, including one video interview, and subjected to a background check before they are accepted into Worldnet’s OBC training program.
Our training program details requirements from professional comportment and hygiene, to step by step instructions for shipment success, to troubleshooting, as well as complete discretion and privacy regarding any shipment in their care.
Years of Service
Many of Worldnet’s couriers are long-time veterans and have “seen it all” – their experiences in the industry are what give them a significant advantage when working to get a critical luxury item to its destination.
When a fashion brand needed an expensive garment delivered to a photoshoot in a very remote location, Worldnet deployed one of our best.
- The courier hopped on a plane, the garment secured in a garment travel case
- After landing, he cleared immigration and Customs with no hiccups
- He then took a taxi service to the literal end of the road – the terrain was too rough for cars to travel so the driver dropped him off
- The courier located a nearby bicycle rental shop, rented a bike, and rode onward through the hilly terrain
- He arrived at the photoshoot’s location ahead of schedule to hand-deliver the dress, ensuring success for the delivery and the photoshoot
