  • It all begins with a thoughtful and informative profile. Let prospective customers know who you are, and be selective about the areas you want to serve. Knowing exactly how you can serve the customer goes a long way.
  • Remember, the price posted and paid all goes to you, the driver. If there are shipment size, or distance discrepancies, we encourage you to message the shipper and negotiate a fair and honest rate adjustment. Only make promises you know you can keep, and treat shippers courteously and with respect at all times.
  • Where possible, volume is always better than single shipment pricing. Try to build a profitable route with multiple clients.If you’re only interested in making single deliveries that’s fine, but be sure of your earning expectations.
  • Treat shippers’ deliveries with as much care as you would your own.Getting it there is only half the job. Careful handling of parcels is essential.
  • Prepare your route before setting out on delivery. This will save you time and fuel.
  • Be polite and friendly. It costs nothing to be kind, and the rewards it can reap are limitless.
