Who can I work for?
Becoming a Deliveroo driver
The platform made its appearance in France in 2015. It quickly expanded throughout France. In fact, now the Deliveroo meal delivery service is present in nearly 90 French cities.
Once the customer orders his or her meal via the app, it is automatically sent to the restaurant. When the restaurant validates the order, then the courier who is closest is notified to come and pick up the order. Thus, once the order is ready and collected, the courier must deliver the order as soon as possible.

Becoming a delivery person with Uber Eats
The platform made its appearance in France in March 2016, only in Paris, then very quickly expanded to all of France. Now, the meal delivery service Uber Eats is present in nearly 350 French cities and regularly opens new cities whose size is increasingly small.
Same operation as Deliveroo.
Becoming a delivery driver at Stuart
Created in 2015, Stuart was officially launched in Paris in April 2016. Then, in 2017, the company was acquired by GeoPost, itself part of the La Poste Group.
Unlike other platforms, the customer does not order directly on the Stuart website. Instead, companies use Stuart’s delivery services to ensure their deliveries. Thus, automatically, when an order is placed, Stuart is notified and designates a courier to take care of the delivery. The courier must then pick up the order and deliver it as quickly as possible to its destination.
