How Many Runners Do I Need?

Short story

We recommend you need 1 Runner for every 8-12 jobs (per Shift)

Long story

It’s hard to say how many Runners you will need to hire for your Shift. This is due to many factors, including the following:

  • The types of items you’re sending
  • The size of the items
  • The time of day
  • The length of the Shift
  • The spread or concentration of the drop-offs
  • The volume you’d like to send
  • The urgency of the deliveries
  • The vehicle you’ve chosen
  • The geography of your location
  • How much you’re willing to spend

We can only recommend you trial us and figure out what number best suits you. That’s why we say 1 Runner can do 8-12 deliveries. If you are still not sure how many Runners you need, please send a historical delivery data to our Support team and we will give your a more accurate suggestion.
