S.O.D.A. is an association that has the INDIVIDUAL COURIERS best interests as it's core mission statement. While they are many institutions offering advice and membership to the Courier Industry, those Companies marketing targets are the Courier Companies and not the Individual Self-Employed Owner Driver.
While all the information for the individual courier driver to operate successfully is mostly available on the internet, here at S.O.D.A. we have attempted to provide the individual driver with all the relevant information in one place. An individual membership to S.O.D.A. while yes it costs £1.00 per month, will be more than offset by the benefits S.O.D.A. can provide the individual member.
The benefits which are listed throughout the site also include new to S.O.D.A. a representation for you in work related issues such as Disciplinary Meetings, Contractual disagreements along with free legal advice. Don't get fobbed off by some delivery company, get to know what employment rights you have even if you are self employed.
We can guide you through all the proposed UK legislations that will come in, the increasing use of the major delivery companies to use 'lifestyle' couriers, parcel drop rates that are not worth gettting out of bed for, driverless vehicles, drones, proposed 50mph motorway controlled sections, 20mph speed limits in towns, proposed congestion charging to be introduced in major cities and towns, low emmission areas, the inevitable rise in the cost of fuel that will happen and the sprialling cost of vehicle insurance for commercial vehicles especially for couriers with the requirement to have cover for the carriage of goods for Hire & Reward.
SO JOIN OUR ASSOCIATION AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO
CHAMPION THE CAUSE OF THE SELF-EMPLOYED OWNER DRIVER.
