Medical and Lab Couriers

June 17, 2018
Medical and lab work generates a huge amount of courier work. Whether it’s moving equipment, reagents, samples, medicines or paperwork, this sector has its own logistics work. Some labs employ couriers, but many contract work out to external firms, which either employ their own couriers or offer self-employed courier jobs to drivers in their fleet.



While it is a specialised sector of the industry, the skills possessed by a good courier are directly transferrable to those needed by a good medical/lab courier. Lab and medical courier work makes a great way for existing couriers to diversify their work as well as a good starting point for those interested in courier work generally. What’s more, the large number of self-employed courier jobs in this field make it a great place to pick up work on an ad-hoc basis, potentially alongside another job when times are quiet, without the need to fully commit to a career in logistics.

What Do Medical/Lab Couriers Do?

Companies in the laboratory science and medical fields generally send and receive a large number of packages. In these fields packages are often small, varied, fragile or expensive and frequently require cold storage during transit. Accompanying documentation is as important as the packages themselves. Efforts must be made to avoid mislabelling and maintain safety protocols required to transport certain materials.

Medical and lab couriers often have to take extra care with the handling of their packages as well as ensuring that they drive carefully and promptly. Medical and scientific packages can frequently be unstable, fragile or perishable. When hiring long-term contractors or looking for people to take self-employed courier jobs, courier firms typically ensure that their workers are able to successfully meet these criteria.



What Skills Does a Medical/Lab Courier Need?

Broadly speaking, the skills required by a medical/lab courier are the same as those required by any other courier: good driving skills, punctuality, a professional demeanour, the ability to lift reasonable weights and good organisational skills. There is generally more emphasis on punctuality and organisational skills as long delays can invalidate results or destroy perishable products. Mislabelling can be catastrophic in these particular fields and must be avoided at all costs. Additionally, some products involved in chemical synthesis or medical treatment can be under increased legal scrutiny due to their usefulness in the illegal drug trade, so keeping good paperwork is a must.

The skills involved in medical/lab courier work are all completely transferable to all other forms of courier work, even if the emphasis may be slightly different. In fact, many of them are seen as good practices in courier work in general. Consequently, self-employed courier jobs in the medical/lab fields can be a great way to either get started in the industry or diversify your client base.

Motorcycle Protective Clothing

May 14, 2018
There is some great looking motorcycle clothing on the market these days, but believe me not all of the motorcycle clothing offers as much protection as you think. In Europe, for motorcycle clothing to be lawfully sold as “safety clothing, it has to pass a series of European standards, which are pretty lengthy but are available on my website. The standards cover the clothing’s performance in abrasion, tearing and impact tests, and when they have passed; they are sold with the CE mark. How...

Motorcycles in the military

May 14, 2018
The speed and manoeuvrability of motorbikes has been a huge asset to armed forces throughout the world, with Harley-Davidson, Triumph and BMW all playing their part. 



The other day, I took the chance to watch again that fantastic movie ‘The Great Escape’. As I watched Bud Ekins take the place of Steve McQueen, to jump the wire fence on his Triumph, I began to wonder about the role of the motorcycle during wartime, so I did a little reading and was surprised to find that motorcycles have pl...

Royal Enfield Motorcycles

May 5, 2018
Through necessity, and in common with most other engineering companies of the day, Enfield didn’t restrict themselves to one line. They also made lawnmowers, bicycles and rifle parts for a Small Arms factory in Enfield. A clue lies in their logo which depicts a cannon, which I have to say, is infinitely better than a lawn mower. Their motto of ‘Made like a gun, Goes like a bullet’ is also evidence of their military involvement. In 1907, the company joined forces with a business with the...

Checking a motorcycle battery

April 27, 2018


With the battery removed, inspect the condition of the anti-vibration padding inside a battery carrier. Check the rubber padding inside the battery carrier. Check the rubber padding for damage, hardening of the rubber or bits missing.
