Use the Courier Exchange Mobile App in Europe

If you’re looking to extend your reach and boost your profits, there are plenty of opportunities to pick up courier work for owner drivers in Europe. Members of the Exchange can use the Mobile App throughout Europe and receive the same functions and benefits as in the UK.

  • Reduce your empty return journeys
  • Post return journeys from your phone, while on the road
  • Advertise your real-time location and availability status
  • Receive load notifications based on your current location
  • Update your customer on the go

In 2017, new EU rules made it significantly cheaper to use your mobile in Europe. The ‘Roam Like at Home’ rules effectively ended expensive roaming charges, so you don’t need to worry about accidentally running up huge data roaming bills if you want to start taking on courier work for owner drivers in the EU. But it’s still important to read the fine print and speak with your provider to clarify.

  • You don’t need to do anything, it’ll all happen automatically.
  • You’ll be able to use your phone as you would in the UK for the same costs, so you won’t be charged any more to use your existing minutes, texts or data (in most cases). If you do go over your allowance you’ll be charged at the same UK rate.
  • There are some countries where the new rules do not apply, so it’s important to check with your network. Some providers may still allow you to use your UK allowance in these places anyway.
  • The amount of useable data allowance varies from provider to provider so, again, it’s important to check. (If you can find free Wi-Fi it’s always a good idea!)

The Government has confirmed it cannot guarantee free EU roaming in the event of a no-deal Brexit. 

If you’re looking for more courier work, for owner drivers in Europe there are opportunities waiting through the CX Mobile App.

IMPORTANT! Please call your network provider to get the best mobile phone rates and information about tariffs post Brexit. Transport Exchange Group cannot be held responsible for any 3rd party pricing. For more Mobile App news follow us on  @couriermobile

Royal Mail Offering Owner Driver Jobs

Hello, sweethearts!

Well, it appears I may have to eat a small serving of my words this week. Why am I embarrassed, you might ask? Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail. I was saying I think it's a lesson for the Post Office not to get smug and to actually update their prices.

AEB Should Be Fitted to All Courier Vehicles

As 2017 sadly saw road deaths at the highest they have been in the past five years, improving road safety should be a number one priority for road users. Volkswagen has argued that fitting AEB on all commercial vehicles could prevent about 2,500 crashes per year. The Department for Transport agrees that hundreds of lives could be saved, and many serious injuries avoided if all vans under 3.5 tonnes were fitted with AEBs.

To Buy or Not to Buy Leasing vs Buying a Courier Vehicle

Hello, all!

Yes, that's right – no 'darlings' or 'dears' today. That's because, this time around, it's not Auntie Gertie at the wheel, it's me, your trusted designated driver, Steve!

I asked my Auntie Gertie to let me have her blog for a week, because I want to talk about something important that I don't think she's ever brought up, at least recently – and that's the issue of whether you should buy or lease vehicles when you're a self-employed, independent owner driver.
