What Is the Difference Between an Independent Contractor Courier and a Delivery Driver
An independent contractor courier and a delivery driver both carry items like packages and documents. However, a delivery driver is a company employee. They usually drive a company vehicle instead of a personal vehicle, and they may receive employment benefits. As an independent contractor courier, you are not a company employee. You use your own car, and the company or companies that you work for pay per delivery or per loaded mile traveled. As a contractor, you are responsible for car operation costs and insurance.
