Our contractors are true business partners, your success is our success. Contractors get paid for every pick-up and delivery, which means you'll enjoy the rewards of your hard work. Our contractors are independent business owners and operators, essentially owning your own business (but with the advantages of being paid on a set date, a starting base of customers, and our ongoing support). 

We look for people that have a strong desire to be involved in an exciting and hardworking industry. A reason for our success is our promise of extremely high service standards to our customers, so we need people that have a desire and ability to help us deliver that promise. 

Key attributes we look for in a courier: 

  • A positive attitude 
  • Reliability 
  • Honesty and commitment 
  • Customer-focus 
  • Attention to detail 
  • Good communication skills 
  • Geographic knowledge (local and national areas) 

In exchange for your work we offer you the opportunity to manage your own business with the support, training and infrastructure of a large company to draw on. You'll have economical business start up and running costs offered including company discounts on fuel, health and vehicle purchase, a full sales team dedicated to the growth of your business and an admin team who amongst other things, collect monies from your customers - if they don't pay us we still pay you! Be part of an excellent and proven business partnership. 

We understand that if you are unfamiliar with the courier industry you may not have an understanding what the work is like, and we wouldn’t want anyone to make a commitment to become a contractor courier without first seeing what it’s like.  So, if you are interested in becoming a courier we would send you out on different types of runs, ranging from residential to compact city and industrial areas and have you spend time with different groups of current contractors.
