Become a Courier Driver


The flexibility of being a courier driver extends to which jobs you choose to take on. If the timings don’t work for you, you don’t have to accept the job. Being a Speedy Freight courier driver is the perfect way to achieve the work-life balance you’re striving for, whatever that looks like for you.

A courier driver job is ideal for anyone looking to plan their work around their other commitments, rather than the other way around. It allows you to do the school run, fit in a few hours of studying, head to the gym, or pursue other passions.

Plus, as a preferred driver you will get paid weekly at a competitive rate.

While most of our courier drivers are self-employed, they still receive a great deal of support from both the local branches and our central support centre. If they have any questions about payment, procedure, or opportunities, we’re just a phone call away. No driver is left to figure things out for themselves.


Looking to the long term, being a courier driver is a role that offers stability. There will always be a need for fast yet reliable same day delivery, from both commercial and domestic clients.

As a self-employed courier driver, you’ll gain valuable experience about the ins and outs of running your own business. Working with Speedy Freight isn’t just about being a good driver. Time management, customer care and adaptability are just some of the transferable skills you’ll be able to develop.

We are always on the lookout for reliable owner drivers to join our preferred driver network, helping to keep hundreds of businesses running on a daily basis.

As a Speedy Freight preferred driver you can drive and earn as much as you want. The more bookings you take on, the more you’ll make. Meet a certain threshold of jobs per month and you will be afforded the opportunity to adopt the Speedy Freight livery on your vehicle.
