Fast and Curious Coursiers cooperative

Fast and Curious Coursiers is a cooperative in Le Havre, France, which was founded by two former delivery workers. The launch was supported by the federation CoopCycle. Deliveries are made by bicycle or electric bicycle in order to limit carbon emissions. Another objective is to improve working conditions of the couriers and ensure cohesion among workers. Currently they are hired on a freelance basis and the cooperative aims to conduct payments quickly after the service was conducted (in contrast to large platform companies, which are often accused of delaying payments). Equipment is provided by the association.
