Courier work for owner drivers involves logistical thinking, especially when deciding on which is the quickest route to get to destinations.

Here are some veterans who have dealt with various situations who have shared their tips with you here:-
Planning Ahead

Plan a route and know your route! This not only means having thorough knowledge on the area you are operating, but also having alternatives in stock as driving via various routes does factor in courier work. For owner drivers the ideal route would be one that that includes the necessary delivery stops and also avoids problem areas, e.g. traffic-prone junctions. This awareness will also help couriers in quickly observing which areas are safe, and which ones are not. Planning such routes is an indispensable skill which is acquired over time and experience on the road.

Knowing the Ground

By knowing the routes that are available to you, you can effectively choose the best one. Courier work for owner drivers is usually available on a country-wide basis, but there are regional and local opportunities too.

Being Adaptable
Being adaptable is key when travelling and doing courier work. For owner drivers, it is an important skill to be able to choose from multiple routes as opposed to committing to the same trail every time. It is beneficial knowing different routes as it will increase your flexibility, allowing you to react to different situations more efficiently. By adapting to different paths, one can quickly plan ahead with the knowledge they have and conduct logistical and delivery operations in methodical, organised manner.

Courier Jobs are more exciting than you think

If you’re really into transport, then looking out for courier jobs could be the vocation for you.
Typically, the first thing that comes to mind, when we think of courier jobs, is (usually) a man driving a van, or a larger lorry, or riding a motorbike, delivering goods to businesses and personal customers.
While this does seem simple enough, there are some key characteristics which all courier jobs would ask from you.

Logistic Precision

As a courier driver you will need to be well prepared for the day ahead and know your way around the area allocated to you very, very well.

Safety, Safety, Safety!

While you would not be afraid to of getting the wind in your hair and you can brave whatever the weather out there maybe, courier companies have specific safety regimes which they would state in their descriptions for courier jobs.

Nobody ever think they will be injured and it is easy to get complacent and forget about the dangers on the roads. So, it’s the obvious – but ultimately protective measures for your own safety- little things you would be required to do, e.g. wear helmets while driving and riding your vehicle, replace your helmet if you happen to drop it (damage to helmets often cannot be seen with the naked eye and could therefore not serve as an effective protector), get proper lights and reflectors when riding a motorbike and bicycle, etc.

In fact, lighting is an issue, because some cyclists think that using small flashing lights will do – but these are deemed illegal when used on their own. You would need to have lights that are static and switched on at all times of riding. Also, make sure the lights are not damaged in any way so that they work properly, especially if you are working night shifts, as many courier jobs require you to.

Do not get overconfident in traffic

The traffic is apparently still for a while and you, the courier driver, think it is safe for you to weave around the traffic, to get ahead of the queue. Needless to say, this is a dangerous situation, because you get into danger if you have not alerted the other drivers around you before you set off.
You should ideally have a bell that functions properly when riding a bicycle and a horn when riding a motorbike. These can be interpreted as being childish, but they have proven to safe many lives, so better to be judicious and not judgemental.
Yes, being fast is key to all courier jobs, but not at the cost of your life. So, while you need to be efficient, do not risk being overconfident.
