Carrier Contractor - Description

We require carrier-contractors for specific routes to deliver daily newspapers and other products on a daily basis to homes, apartments and businesses.

  • These are permanent part-time contracts requiring you to provide service seven days per week for 2.5 to 3 hours per day.  Start times are between 2 am and 3 am each day.
  • Carrier contractors pickup their newspapers from a central site located in the region
  • An average route is 150-200 papers per day
  • Carrier contractors are paid by the paper or product.  An average route earns approx $800/month. 
  • Carrier contractors are required to sign a contract for a specific route or area.  They are considered to be self-employed and all government tax requirements are the responsibility of the carrier contractor.
  • Carrier contractors are required to cover their own costs, including vehicle, gas, plastic bags, elastic bands, collection envelopes, etc.
  • A reliable vehicle is essential.  Access to a 2nd vehicle, and possible assistance is an asset.
  • There is a thirty (30) day notice period required for termination of your contract.
  • Quality standards are high.  Carrier contractors are expected to deliver products by the delivery deadline without mistakes on a daily basis.  There are certain costs involved if delivery standards are not met.

These contracts are an excellent second income.  Most of our carrier contractors work a full time job or another part-time position in addition to delivering newspapers.

Contracts become available on a regular basis.  Apply online and if you meet our criteria, we will contact you within 48 hours.  Getting a route contract is sometimes just a matter of time.  We keep an active list of prospects.
