To become a self-employed courier, you need a van and insurance. You also need loads. We can help.
We can put you in touch with van providers and price-matching insurance brokers. And, of course, we can help get you loads – CX gets you access to more than 13,000 loads a day. No other UK platform has so many loads available.
There are more than 13,000 courier loads posted to CX every day. No other UK platform has so many loads available.
With CX, self-employed couriers can search live maps to find loads in the nearby area. Which means, as a self-employed courier, you always have access to a steady stream of loads to deliver… so you can make your own money and grow your own business.
With the CX app, you have access to loads all over the country. That means, once you’ve delivered a load, you don’t need to drive back empty.
Instead, open the CX app and find a load that needs to be delivered on your way home.
That way, you make money on the way out… and on the way back.
The courier industry is competitive. Getting your pricing right is crucial – especially if you’re new to the game.
CX can show you average prices per mile for vehicles like yours going to and from certain locations, and the data is updated weekly.
That means, with CX, you can quote strategically to win more work… even if you’re new to sending quotes.
With CX, you can find your own loads. But you don’t even need to do that.
There are more than 13,000 loads posted to CX every day. And x% of those go unsold… which means CX shippers are always looking for decent drivers.
With CX, you can let shippers know when you’re empty. Simply set your status to ‘available’ in the CX app. Then sit back and wait for shippers to contact you.
Many couriers dislike dropping multiple parcels at multiple locations in built up areas day in, day out.
The overwhelming majority of CX loads are A-to-B. One pick up point. One drop off point.
And a decent drive in between.
As an owner driver, your capacity is limited. So when you’re offered two jobs at once, you usually have to turn work down.
With CX, though, you can book subcontractors. So you can accept both jobs. Then team up with other CX members to make sure both loads are delivered.
That means, with CX, you don’t just get loads. You get a platform to help you grow your courier business.
Shippers hand you valuable goods. Which means they need to trust you. If you’re new, that can cause you problems.
When you join CX, though, you also get Trustd. Trustd is cutting-edge tech that demonstrates your compliance continuously.
That means shippers know they can trust you. Which means you can work with some of the UK’s biggest shippers – no matter how fresh you might be.
Trustd levels the playing field, and allows self-employed courieres to make contacts you otherwise never would.
It can be hard for owner drivers to keep track of payments. You do a job. Then invoice. Then you need to make sure you get paid.
With CX, you send shippers digital invoices through the CX platform. That means CX automatically shows you
So there’s no more chasing your tail. With CX, you can check you’ve been paid in seconds – and do something about it when you haven’t.
CX is the UK’s biggest courier network. With CX, even if you’re a solo operator, you’re part of a community of more than 8,000 other couriers.
What’s more, you get access to the CX directory. That means you can contact other shippers and couriers in your area. To partner up. For everyone’s gain.
With CX, life as a courier isn’t such a struggle – shippers in your area want to work with you.
