Should you hire a courier that uses independent contractors?

Unfortunately, companies today looking to save money, are taking advantage of couriers for their distribution needs, who use independent contractors (IC’s).

Use of independent contractors by courier companies is a no-brainer for companies who are looking to make a quick buck at the expense of the drivers.  No workers compensation, no unemployment insurance and you can run the drivers into overtime with no extra money being paid.

California EDD, the US Department of Labor and the IRS might have a different take on this issue.

If you and your company needs transport services and want to avoid the pitfalls that Uber, Amazon and many courier companies who misuse IC’s are having, contact HB Express and I can provide you with a no-obligation, competitive quote based on your delivery specifications.
