Hello my Dearies,


One of the best things I love about my job is that I get to meet some really interesting people every day, and it is no secret that drivers of courier loads really enjoy their line of work too. Whether serving up the best bacon butties or transporting precious cargo across the country, we all possess special qualities that make us really good at what we do. 

If you are thinking about becoming a courier driver and want to know more about the qualities and skills that you will need, then take a look at this article I found which shows a typical job description for a courier driver. 

I believe that patience is one of the best qualities a courier driver can have. Imagine spending hours stuck in a traffic jam and knowing that there is nothing you can do about it except wait. The best drivers of courier loads are able to remain calm and professional in these situations without getting frustrated by the long delays they may face in getting their load to its destination on time. 

Another great quality to have if you spend all day on the road transporting courier loads is punctuality. Working in the courier business is all about sticking to deadlines and ensuring that your deliveries are made on time. Of course there will be times when certain circumstances out of our control cause delays, but courier drivers make the best possible effort to meet their deadlines. 

Well that’s enough from me for now; don’t forget to pull over for a delicious bacon butty if you are driving by. 

See you all soon!
