RE: Application Driver Position

Dear Mr. Wilson,

I am excited to be applying for the open driver position as advertised on [] under section [‘work at’].  With more than ten years of experience as a professional driver, I developed time management skills and an excellent driving record.

Throughout my career, I have taken pride in timely-pickups, deliveries and maintaining lasting relationships with clients. I noticed that [Company X] provides top-quality service to small package clients. I am confident about my potential contribution to minimising loss and damage and deliver your average number of 80.000 business and residential packages each year.

I am currently working at [Company Y] where I manage and transport 200+ packages each day. That means I need to update records, load and unload goods at pre-appointed destinations across a 40-mile route between [Amsterdam] and [Schiphol Airport]. To ensure safe driving and cargo security, I always maintain and inspect the vehicle before departure. I can proudly confirm a great driving record (see resume) without any violations. I obtain the necessary licenses to transport [tonnage] in [types of vehicles].

I would be thrilled to learn more about the driver position, contribute to [Company X’s] delivery targets and maintain excellent client relationships. In the attachment, you’ll find my resume and health check documents. I would be happy to provide any additional information you might need. I am available at [email or phone number].
