There are various degrees of security that are implemented by courier companies based on the specifics of whatever cargo they are transporting at any given time. For example, the security that a San Francisco courier might implement for transporting a low value package might differ greatly from what they might do when transporting highly valuable legal documents of any kind.
Legal documents are among the most important things that a courier can carry. That is because they are often required to be transported in hard copy, and so can be very difficult to replace if they are lost. Many companies that send these types of things through a messenger service want to know that their deliveries are being taken care of, so couriers have extra security measures in place to help give them both the protection and the peace of mind which they require.
There are different ways that a courier company might protect your legal documents in shipping, but the most common method involves the use of a continuous courier. This means that the same person that picks up your documents will be the person that delivers them, and who returns them to you if that is part of the delivery arrangement.
Every time there is a transfer of ownership in a package, there is a potential for loss to occur. By making sure that the same reliable courier carries the documents every step of the way, the courier company knows exactly who is in possession of the documents at all times. This also means that if something should go wrong, they know exactly where to look.
This type of document security extends to both deliveries within a single city as well as cross country and even international shipments. If you are shipping legal documents that need to travel by air, this type of service is typically called an on board service. This means that the courier will bring the documents as part of their carry on so that they are never out of their sight, even for a minute.
There are some additional services that you can sometimes get in addition to the added security that comes with legal document transportation. For instance, sometimes, the couriers who handle these shipments for delivery companies will also agree to act as witnesses to the signing of any documents which you are shipping. That is something that can be very useful if you're sending documents out just to be signed and returned to you.
