Contractors

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR COURIER DRIVERS:

Our courier division is the backbone of our organization and has been providing services to customers for over 20 years. Unlike other courier companies, Apple does not nickel and dime the Independent Contractor for cost they incur to service clients. We have service needs by customers 24/7/365 which require cars, uncovered and covered pickup trucks with lockable camper tops, SUVs, minivans, full-­size cargo vans, and sprinter vans. Independent Contractors are individuals in business for themselves. Contractors are required to provide their own vehicle, equipment, insurance, fuel, and maintenance. An Independent Contractor must fulfill the following requirements to provide customers with services.

  • 7 year motor vehicle record.
  • Clean criminal background.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR FREIGHT DRIVERS:

Our freight division received client service requests for shipments ranging from 16ft – 26ft box trucks with a majority of shipments requiring lift gate capability. Below are the contracting requirements for our freight division.

I would like to say thank you to the fabulous staff at Apple Courier for their excellent customer service and prompt delivery. I called yesterday after finding your service online and was immediately greeted with kindness and professionalism. She reviewed all of my delivery options and gave me information on how much each option would cost. When I called back to place my order, I spoke with another Customer Service Representative, who was also very friendly and helpful. I failed to get the name of the gentleman who picked up the materials I had for delivery, but he was delightful as well. Additionally, all steps of the delivery process were communicated to me via email – very helpful.

It is not often that I receive superior customer service, but when I do it is important to me that I let people know. I will definitely be spreading the word about your service to colleagues and friends. Many thanks,

- Stephanie D. Financial Services Office Manager

Just a note to express our sincere appreciation for the excellent service we have received since opening our account with Apple Logistics. Your people are extremely easy to work with, the deliveries have all been made on time (or early), and the amount of information you provide for each job is fantastic and extremely welcome. Again, our thanks!

We have been doing business with Apple Courier for many years. We have found the courier service to be reliable, dependable, and professional. Our clients will specifically request Apple Courier over other couriers due Steve's professionalism and friendly personality. We have always found the billing of Apple Courier to be accurate and without complication. It has been a pleasure working with Apple and we look forward to a longstanding relationship with them.

I just want to say what a fantastic job your driver is doing for us. He’s so consistent you can set your watch by him and he’s also very proactive about staying in communication with the mail handlers at each campus and coordinating pickups/deliveries according to their needs. They know they can count on him and that makes my job much easier. Thanks again Charon for putting him on our route and I hope you have a great day.

Apple Courier is extremely reliable and responsive. Their website and proactive customer service make it possible for me to take care of our clients without continuous follow up or worry. The management and support team truly take an interest in our business and make every effort to exceed our expectations. We have been utilizing Apple for almost two years, and I would recommend them highly to anyone.
- Mark H. Lead Traffic Specialist
When our company needs a courier service for packages or a box truck for local deliveries, the only company that we call is Apple Courier. I’ve had several of our customers tell us how nice the driver was. This makes us look good. They deliver on time and have very competitive rates. For some of our larger deliveries around Atlanta, they often are less expensive than using UPS.
