Cover letters provide an umbrella to a Courier Resume; this means that if you have missed something out in your resume, a cover letter will “cover” it.

In fact, this letter allows for flexibility which is not possible in a courier resume. Personalizing your cover letter and making reference to the employer’s specific job description lends credibility to your request for consideration, and states how your capabilities fit into that practice.

A good Cover Letter for Courier position may ensure interview – a bad one may end up in rejection.

Dear Ms. Davis:

Skimming through career portal of Iron Mountain, I was contented to come across a job listing for a Courier. I have ample experience working as a courier for Hilton Mansions and would like to switch jobs in order to explore employment in a different setting. You will see from my resume (enclosed) that my experience is vast and my accomplishments are above par.

I am a strong candidate for this job because I am highly skilled in delivering parcels and documents of all nature in different parts of the city. Moreover, I am an expert driver and able to ride a motor bike as well as a truck depending on where the delivery destination is. My familiarity with all routes inside the city and know-how of using maps and the GPS makes it easier and efficient for me to deliver parcels promptly.

Furthermore, I possess a thorough understanding of courier related procedures which includes; ensuring signatures at the time of delivery, recording information both manually and electronically and using postage meters. I have a good physical stamina which enables me to unload and load goods and parcels on the delivery vehicle.

I believe that Iron Mountain could be greatly benefited from my capabilities in terms of timely and quality service. I will be happy to discuss the possibility of my joining and will call you in next week to set a meeting date. In the mean time, I can be reached at (039) 999-3219 or via email at [Email].

Thank you for your time and consideration.
