1. A Delivery a Courier Driver Should Never Have to Make
May 24, 2018

As a courier driver, there are many things you would expect to deliver throughout your career: small packages, large parcels, letters, maybe even the odd strange item (I’ve heard someone once had to deliver a banana that had been sent through the Royal Mail with an address inked into the skin and a stamp stuck to its tip!). What one driver from Somerset never predicted, though, was that he would have to deliver his own baby. A Courier Driver’s Unexpected Delivery Just a few weeks ago, Oliver Holditch was woken in the early hours of the morning by his pregnant fiancée, Danielle Ridewood. Her ... (read more)

2. The Fleet Management Case for the Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle
May 24, 2018

Prevention of global warming has made the headlines a lot lately, particularly as courier companies look to decrease their fleet’s carbon footprint. One way is to invest in plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs). These ultra-low-emission vans are ideal for use in both local and national courier jobs. Why Use Plug-in Hybrids for Deliveries Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles use both a petrol engine and a battery-powered electric motor. So, if your drivers are carrying out local courier jobs, they can operate the vehicle exclusively in electric mode. In this case, it works just like a battery ... (read more)

May 24, 2018

There’s been a lot of talk about electric vehicles lately and their benefits to the environment. If you work in the delivery industry, though, I’m sure you want to know whether these ultra-low emission vans are suitable for your purpose. I certainly think so, but you don’thave to take my word for it. Here’s a rundown of all the perks of trading in your diesel or petrol engine for a lithium battery-powered vehicle. How Are Electric Vehicles Suitable for the Delivery Industry? Ideal for Low Mileage Journeys A battery-powered van has roughly a 100-mile range between charges, making it perfect ... (read more)

5. Keep it Real in the Rain: Wet Weather Considerations for Courier Drivers
May 24, 2018

Anyone in charge of a vehicle in therain should alter their driving behaviour to suit the wet conditions. However, for courier drivers, paying attention to the road conditions is even more important. As couriers drive larger vehicles than many on the road they have to consider the safety of those around them, and as they’re often transporting valuable goods, smoothness is also a consideration. In addition, your courier drivers represent your company out on the roads and poor driving habits can reflect badly on the business as a whole. The responsibilities of making sure drivers comply wit... (read more)

6. LoCity: An Initiative to Help Commercial Vehicles Lower Emissions
May 24, 2018

With the imminent implementation of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone in 2020, the transport industry has been given a helping hand in the form of Transport for London’s collaborative LoCity programme. The impact of air pollution and traffic congestion affects everyone, but as all transport (including HGVs and small vans for courier loads) plays a part in the issue of London’s emissions, anyone with a vested interest in the commercial fleet sector has a responsibility to get involved in their mitigation and reduction. TfL’s LoCity programme aims to “increase the availability and upt... (read more)

In a world of next-day deliveries, precise to-the-hour delivery slots and live parcel tracking, it’s hard to imagine courier work in some of its more rustic forms.

May 04, 2018

As any employer whose business involves courier work will know, logistics companies shoulder a significant amount of responsibility every time a fleet goes out on the road. The practice of the business takes place on public highways, where fellow drivers are put at risk by anyone driving irresponsibly or under the influence of alcohol.

12. The Growing Advantages to Operating a Green Courier Vehicle
May 04, 2018

The government is planning to relax the licensing for vans that use alternative fuels. In this article, I explore how these measures can incentivise owner drivers to consider upgrading to a green vehicle for their work. Changes in Legislation In March, the government announced that it would negotiate with the EU in order to relax a current regulation that prevents owner drivers with category B licenses from driving electric or hybrid vans of a similar size. As it stands, a category B licensed driver will be prohibited from driving a green vehicle, because it weighs more than the de... (read more)

May 04, 2018

Transparency is so much more than a buzzword. It’s a fundamental aspect of good business, and one which should guide every decision that we make.

This article lays out the crucial factors to bear in mind when creating a truly transparent courier workspace.

March 28, 2018

Different industries demand different skill sets, and working in the courier industry requires specific abilities. Excellent driving habits go without saying, and yet an owner driver must also learn how to keep accounts and deal with clients. However, there are many ‘soft skills’ that are useful in any line of work, such as time management and a perfect handshake.

One of the hardest aspects of setting up as an owner driver is the responsibility of securing work for yourself.

As futuristic as artificial intelligence may sound, the days of it being a distant sci-fi dream are long gone. Although we may not always notice it, artificial intelligence has become a key behind-the-scenes component of many aspects of our day-to-day lives, from the virtual personal assistant on your phone to the suggestions from your favourite music and TV subscription services. In essence, artificial intelligence just refers to the ability of machines to make data-driven decisions, and build upon real-time information to become more effective at doing so over time.

21. Grey Fleets: The Problems & Perks Explained
March 19, 2018

Put simply, ‘grey fleet’ is the term for private vehicles put to business use. This happens in many industries and occupations, but is most common in courier work, where employees often work locally and to a flexible schedule. Making deliveries is no longer a job for company vans alone, a fact that can certainly feel like a win-win in terms of convenience and low taxation. However, as with any business-critical operation, there are risks to take into account when relying on this new way of working.

23. Minimising Risks in Courier Work: The Paperwork
February 26, 2018

Though paperwork is most people's least favourite aspect of their job, failing to stay on top of collection notes and delivery receipts is a risk that is not worth taking if you're undertaking courier work. If a client raises a query about a delivery, the driver could be in big trouble if they cannot provide the right documents. It Could Happen to You Cast your mind back to a recent job that you carried out. Perhaps you were delivering a set of cartons to a client–let’s say six.
