codforum - the self employed courier owner driver forum


This page has links to useful and interesting resources on other sites.

Codforum has no connection with any of these sites (except my own), and I am not implying any recommendation of them by listing them here.

if you are starting up it's a great site to get infomation and ideas

books and guides

I do not include links to sites that make unrealistic claims about possible income.
