Typically, courier owner/drivers need to provide their own vehicle and cover all their own operating costs, including fuel, vehicle maintenance, insurance and superannuation.
Courier companies advertise positions in newspapers, job websites and on their own corporate websites.
Owner/drivers are usually engaged under contract. The terms of the contract vary from company to company.
POAAL can help courier owner/drivers manage their insurance costs. POAAL’s courier members can access insurance at very competitive rates through POAAL’s group policies and through our insurance broker, Network Insurance Group.
