Top 5 Delivery Jobs in Singapore

After Circuit Breaker where delivery services were common, everyone got used to staying home and ordering delivery. As many industries are expanding their services to improve employment rates, they have made it easier, more convenient and more efficient for many people to find jobs and earn extra income. One of those options is to do the delivery job in your own car. There are many service providers that hire individual or personally licensed drivers to perform delivery jobs at a competitive pay. So if you've ever thought about how to make additional income from your own vehicles in Singapore or getting a freelance job as a delivery driver, you've come to the right place.

With Singaporeans being more reliant on food delivery as technology blooms and the convenience of having food delivered to your doorstep without leaving the house, the food delivery industry blooms too. Riders also have flexible hours and can sign up with any mode of transport they have - even by foot! Even with more relaxed protocols, it is clear that delivery platforms are here to stay. If you are looking for a part-time job with flexible hours and competitive pay, why not consider getting a job as a delivery rider?
