A messenger is an emerging professional who works for various companies and sectors. Thanks to ecommerce this sector is still very important and the figure of messenger is increasingly necessary.

What do messengers do?

They work for companies in various sectors or specializations or for courier companies. They are responsible for taking orders and products from one site to another, that is, from the company to the customer or final recipient. The client can be a private individual or a company that also requests these services. So what are its functions? Well, different according to the size of the company. We list some below:

  • Control the stock and orders to deliver.
  • Delivery of products to the final recipient.
  • Delivery tracking.
  • Management of possible incidents.
  • Write down the delivery, delivery area and material delivered.
  • Charge if necessary.
  • Keep track of invoices and delivery notes.
  • Manage and organize delivery routes.

What qualities should it have?

Professional couriers are people who dominate transport because they usually go to deliver or deliver by motorcycle, bicycle, car or van. They are people with some empathy to be in contact with various people all day. In addition, they must be fast, agile and decisive in order to manage incidents in case there is a problem.

Another of its qualities is to know the environment. On the one hand, they must be familiar with the streets, areas and areas of distribution, and ultimately, with the streets of the city where they work. Professional couriers have years of experience and know how to deliver the merchandise successfully. These messengers can be freelancers and work for several companies at the same time, but they can also be hired by a single company, and set a fixed route schedule that is sometimes rotating and can include weekends.

What qualification do they have?

A large part of the messengers do not usually have a degree. Enough with the experience and the way they work. Yes, it is possible that they may have special driving license plates, such as vans of various sizes, but in general the B1 and motorcycle license plates are used.
