Why Couriers Need Insurance

In Australia, an average of one food delivery courier has been killed on the job every 11 days since the end of September 2020 to November. The deaths have focused attention on the gig economy, with more attention directed on better safety regulations to protect riders. One way courier companies and their employees can remain protected is through insurance – specifically tailored for courier services.
