What does a courier driver do?

The role of a courier driver is to collect a consignment (which could consist of one or multiple documents, packages, pallets etc) on behalf of the customer and deliver to a designated address or multiple addresses, whether that be across a local area or on a nationwide route.

The difference between a delivery driver and a courier is that delivery drivers are generally employed by a company and supplied with a van, whereas courier drivers usually operate courier work on a self-employed basis.
