How CX Can Increase Job Security for Freelancers


Do you love being your own boss, but wish there was more certainty to being self-employed? Courier jobs can often be few and far between when you’re a freelancer – luckily, CX is here to help you increase your work load.

Whoever coined the phrase ‘With great freedom comes great responsibility’ was likely self-employed. You don’t have to answer to anyone, you can pick your own hours and you know you like your boss. However, you also have to drum up your own work – and that can be notoriously unreliable.

When you become a member of Courier Exchange, you’ll have a chance to network with likeminded professionals in the logistics industry and see available jobs in real-time. Join forces with CX – you’ve got the business smarts, we’ve got the connections.

Key Benefits

  • The death of dead mileage. Make every journey worth it by utilising return load jobs no matter where you’re going.
  • Access to the UK’s biggest network of couriers – that means more connections and more work!
  • Control of how much money you make from the jobs you take on with the help of our accounting software and diary.

And the best part? It’s all on your own terms – if you don’t like the look of someone or don’t want to accept a certain job offer, you don’t have to. You’ve got all the independence of freelancing without all the stress.

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?
