Scope of the tag

should limit scope to places where customers can go. --Dieterdreist (talk) 09:54, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

added some details --Muzirian (talk) 18:25, 12 March 2017 (UTC)


Many courier companies offers door-to-door service. Some offer transport with bike, motorcycle, small cars, vans, pickups, and/or lorries. This information should be useful as well. Skippern (talk)

Dont know if that should be included in the map though.--Muzirian (talk) 08:19, 9 March 2017 (UTC)


Hi, if it is meant for office of couriers, then it should be office=courier. Chrabros (talk) 09:59, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Its a facility which may contain office,collection centre etc but not just an office. --Muzirian (talk) 10:02, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
So you propose to mix collection centre with the office and tag them the same way? Chrabros (talk) 10:05, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
like post office is actually an office but its an amenity, get it?--Muzirian (talk) 10:07, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
I think you would tag both, amenity=courier for the place where there's kind of a counter and customers bring in or take away postal items. For the office part of a courier, the office=courier tag is fine. On the other hand, we would also need some courier:<company>=yes property to add to places like kiosks, petrol stations, newspaper agents, etc. which act as service agents for courier companies (as one of the many services they might offer). There's some serious overlap with post offices. I still believe the scope of this tag should be described in more detail.--Dieterdreist (talk) 10:15, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
Ya should be described in more detail.--Muzirian (talk) 10:24, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
Instead of courier:<company>=yes cant we add company name under brand or operator tag?
Added more details to proposal page, pls check --Muzirian (talk) 18:36, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
